God created us to be worshippers. Our worship is not defined in a corporate setting of our local church gathering but is found in the common places of our lives. It is the praise of our soul that weaves its way through the very fabric of our days from the kitchen sink to the boardroom table.
Through the Old Testament story of the people of Israel who are released from exile in Babylon, Ezra: Unleashing the Power of Praise is a powerful study of the book of Ezra, along with the minor prophet Haggai, to discover how to reorient your life of worship.
During this seven-week study, you’ll walk alongside the exiles, and their story will come to life as you experience their return to proper worship through not only the rebuilding of their temple, but the rebuilding of their lives from broken to beautiful. You’ll discover how they gained an identity in God to transform their hearts and minds for a life of worship, and you’ll also learn how to
· break free from selfish desires;
· reorient your worship toward God through daily sanctification;
· recognize God in the everyday and listen to His voice;
· realize your identity in Him;
· keep your heart focused on God;
· identify misaligned worship.
With guided Scripture reading, questions, and prayers, this study will revolutionize your view of worship and inspire you to live a life surrendered to God.
