Day 1

Theme
The shepherd provides for his sheep.

Scripture
Matthew 11:28-30

Discussion
When was the last time you experienced true rest because you really believed and trusted that God provides all of your needs?

What needs are you looking to be satisfied outside of Jesus?

Do you have healthy rhythms of rest built into your life so that you can rest in the Lord as you go?

Prayer
Pray through Psalm 62:1-8

Song
"Christ Is Enough"
Hillsong Worship

Day 2

Theme
The shepherd protects his sheep.

Scripture
Exodus 14

Discussion
Do you have confidence in the protection of the Lord or do you live in exhausting fear of what might happen tomorrow?

Discuss the story of Exodus 14. Can you relate to the Israelites who could not fathom how God would deliver them in v. 10-12? How did God save his people in this story? How is this similar to how God saves us?

The Old Testament is full of stories like the one we read in Exodus 14; stories of God's protection and deliverance. It is good for us to remember these stories. What has the Lord brought you though? How has he delivered you?

Prayer
Pray through Psalm 94:16-19

Song
"Always"
Kristian Stanfill

Day 3

Theme
The shepherd prospers his sheep.

Scripture
Jeremiah 29:11

Discussion
We believe that God will provide for our needs. We have promises of that throughout scripture. How have you seen God meet your needs in both mundane and miraculous ways? 

Where do you find your daily joy? Does it come from the knowledge of what is yours in Jesus; of what God has done and is continually doing for you? 

When you think about the way you live your day to day life, do you celebrate what God has done and is doing? How can you and your family regularly celebrate these things? 

Prayer
Pray through Psalm 126

Song
"Sovereign Over Us"
