I.          Experience Peace and Rest

“In every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks.
7 Then God’s peace, which goes beyond anything we can imagine, will guard your thoughts and emotions through Christ Jesus.”                                                                             Philippians 4:6-7 (GW)

“He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord!”     Isaiah 26:3 (TLB)

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. 29 Walk with me and work with me— watch how I do it… I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. 30 Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)

SCR: “God says, “Be quiet and know that I am God.”

Psalms 46:10 (NCV)

II.         Experience Intimacy

“Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you.”
James 4:8 (NLT)

“The LORD is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him sincerely.”
Psalms 145:18 (NLT)

III.        Experience Fuel

“But the news about Jesus spread even more. Many people came to hear Jesus and to be healed of their sicknesses, but Jesus often slipped away to be alone so he could pray.”
Luke 5:15-16 (NCV)

“At that time Jesus went off to a mountain to pray, and he spent the night praying to God. 13 The next morning, Jesus called his followers to him and chose twelve of them, whom he named apostles.”
Luke 6:12-13 (NCV)

IV.        Experience More Faith

“No one can please God without faith. Whoever goes to God must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”
Hebrews 11:6 (GW)

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us”
Ephesians 3:20 (NIV)

V.         Experience Change

“But Moses begged the Lord his God and said, ‘Lord, don’t let your anger destroy your people…So the Lord changed his mind and did not destroy the people as he had said he might.’”
Exodus 32:14 (NCV)

“Keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened for you. 8 For everyone who keeps asking will receive, and the person who keeps searching will find, and the person who keeps knocking will have the door opened.”
Matthew 7:7-8 (ISV)
