2. Where do you see God in them?
3. What difference does He make?

Based on what you just observed in the passage, how do you think it intersects with your own life? What do you think God is saying to you personally as you read His Word and listen to His voice? How is He challenging you to change or grow? If you’ve encountered questions in your reading, who can you process them with that will guide you toward truth? Write down what stands out as you reflect.

Pray through what you just observed or wrote down. What do you think God is prompting you to do in response next? Write it down, share it with a friend, and take a step to start making it happen.
