Reflecting on Clarity to God's Restoration Plan

Saturday is a day to reflect on all that God has been speaking to you this week and how it will affect your life going forward.

From those of us on the Tree Church Daily team, we hope you have had an amazing week in your purposed time with God. We pray that you were challenged and encouraged by God’s word and His presence in your daily life.

Today, we want you to do something simple yet incredibly important. We want you take time to write in a journal or record a voice memo in your phone answering the prompts below. This does not need to be profound, poetic, or polished. It is a record for you to visit later to see and remember all that God is doing in your life. Journaling is a way to remind you of what God is speaking to you. Speaking something out loud or writing it down makes what we are thinking tangible and makes us accountable to it. If God has challenged you or called you to do something specific this past week, making it tangible makes it real. So don’t skip today…today is about faith building, and that is what we pray happens for you.

Before you get started though, let’s pray together:

Father, I am so thankful that You are the Sacrificial Lamb who made a way for me to access You and Your kingdom. As I reflect on Your restorative plan, help me to remember that because You live inside of me, my body is a temple and dwelling place for Your Spirit. Please help me to live my life in such a way that others will see You in me, and will be encouraged to approach me so I can boldly share how You are the best hope for humanity. Amen.

Here are today’s prompts for you to process through in your written or voice journal:

First, focus on God’s sacrifice through Jesus’ suffering on the cross. Take some time to acknowledge the awesome work that was done by Christ’s death. Worship Him for making a way for all of us to access Him daily!  

Second, focus on your current reality. How has God impacted your life since you have allowed Him to dwell in you? What has He changed in you for the better?

Last, focus on a step that God has challenged you to take. Is there an area of your “temple” that you feel God is calling you to change or surrender to Him? If your body were a building, is there a room that you think you should “tidy” before God walks in?

This is my first week using the daily devotional and I absolutely love it. They are short enough that time is not an acceptable excuse to skip out, and yet filled with so much information and feeling. Thank you all for taking the time to put this together for us!!!
