Great Expectations – What are you afraid of?

Categories: One Step Closer

One Step Closer Every Day

Spend a few minutes every day, reading, meditating and praying with God so that you can take one step closer to Jesus every day.


Sunday – Read Isaiah 9:1-7 – Focus this week on what it means to you that Jesus is the Might God. How does “Mighty God” show up in your life in very real ways?

Monday – Read Luke 1:1-38 – “Nothing is impossible with God”. What would it look like if you were able to more fully believe and live into this powerful promise?

Tuesday – Read Psalm 147:1-20 – For the Psalmist, there is a deep connection between God’s mighty power and our praise. Spend some time praising God for who God is today.

Wednesday – Read Luke 1:39-80 – Read Mary’s Song (v. 46-55) and Zechariah’s Song (v 67-79) and compare and contrast their understanding of God with your own.

Thursday – Read Isaiah 55:1-13 – How do we learn to trust God’s ways and not rely on our own might? Reflect on some times when God’s might has gotten you through a difficult time.

Friday – Read Matthew 1:18-24 – What do you think was going through Joseph’s mind during this time? How can we follow his example and more fully rely on God in times of trouble?

Saturday – Read Isaiah 40:1-31 – How does knowing God is on our side help strengthen and encourage us? Reread vs. 28-31 and apply them to your life and situation right now.
