Rise up and
1. Spend Time with the Lord—Prayer & Devotion
Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
2. Fight—the good fight
(Jos 8:7) Then ye shall rise up from the ambush, and seize upon the city: for the LORD your God will deliver it into your hand.
3. Take a stand
(Luk 6:8) But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.
4. Claim God’s Promises
(Gen 13:17) Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.
5. Strive to be a Blessing
Pro 31:28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Theme: I used this with a ladies breakfast. We had ours at a local Cracker Barrel, but it could have just as easily been a "bring a breakfast item" meeting.
Favor: I took the above devotional and pasted it into a word document with a table. I created 8 book-mark sized cells and decorated them with a pretty sun. My hopes are that they could use them as a book mark in their Bibles.
Ice Breaker: They had to give their name and their favorite breakfast cereal of all time.
