For the week starting January 22, 2017
Questions to go Deeper
Abandoned, wounded and broken-hearted is unexpectedly rescued and becomes discovered, invited and lavished upon. It’s the stuff of fairy tales and can be your story too. Your God story.
Part 4: ACCEPTED

MONDAY: 2 Samuel 4:4; 9:1-13
Mephibosheth’s dad and brother died in battle on the same day that he became lame. Invite the Holy Spirit to reveal how childhood experiences have impacted your identity.
TUESDAY: 2 Samuel 9:8; Proverbs 23:7
Mephibosheth’s negative self-talk reflected how he viewed himself. Do you say anything negative about yourself? Keep track of any negative thoughts or speech about yourself today (be sure to complete tomorrow’s reading).
WEDNESDAY: Proverbs 23:7; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
Our thoughts affect our speech, and our speech shapes our identity and self-confidence. We take every thought captive by speaking truth (inwardly or outwardly) to any thought inconsistent with how God, our loving Father, sees us (see Thursday and Friday readings for how).
THURSDAY: Psalm 103
What verses of Psalm 103 can you use to speak truth to any negative thoughts or self-speech? If you took an inventory of negative thoughts or self-speech re-evaluate it in light of this Psalm.
FRIDAY: Ephesians 3:14-21
Which of these verses can help you speak truth to any negative thoughts or self-speech?
SATURDAY: 2 Samuel 9:7-11; Galatians 2:20
Upon accepting Christ we too, like Mephibosheth, are given a new condition and restored to our rightful status.
SUNDAY: Hebrews 4:16; Ephesians 2:6-8
Christ’s identity is now our identity. Like Mephibosheth we always eat at the king’s table now. Come before God’s throne of grace with confidence today.
