Use the following game plan with your family, LifeGroup, or personal study this week. Allow this game plan to stimulate conversations with each other and with God.
Game Plan This Week:

o James 4:6; James 4:14
What makes having a proper perspective of ourselves so difficult?
What is the difference between having a place of solitude versus
making space for solitude?
- Break into smaller groups and discuss these questions and pray for each other:
o What “great matters” occupy way too much of our time?
o What are some practical ways we can set them aside and make space for
God? Why wouldn’t we do these things?
o What can we do to overcome these challenges?
- Pray for each other:
o Share with your group how you would have them pray for your soul? (For
discipline to make space for solitude with God, humility, etc)
o Share other needs in your life right now (employment, finances,
relationships, family, health, etc.)
- This week make a commitment to sit down often with God and discuss the
health of your soul.
o Ask God to strengthen, embolden, heal, and refresh your soul.
o Ask God to point out pride, haughtiness, busyness, etc.
