GET READY FOR SUNDAY!

1. Read I Corinthian 10:1-13 
2. Sometimes we learn best by being shown what NOT to do, or how NOT to be. Paul recounts the story of the ancient people of Israel as a negative reminder to the Corinthians to not take God's presence and blessing for granted. He calls them to stay focused on God, and not pursue their own desires, and their own solutions. 
3. Where in life are you feeling the pressure or expectation to be in control, or solve problems that are actually beyond your ability or role? 
4. Do you have a regular time of prayer and reflection with Scripture? 
5. Pray right now and ask God to help you get a vision for his strength, his provision, his presence and blessings so that you can trust his guidance even in hard times. 
6. Set up a plan to study God's Word. You can download this app (https://www.youversion.com/apps). YouVersion has easy study plans already available for you to use! 
7. End this time by praying this prayer: Almighty Father, dwell with us, your people. Cause us to draw near to You even in the midst of our failures. In Your presence help us to find a God who is waiting with open hands and heart to receive us as we return to you. Amen.
