Trusting the God Who is There

by | Jun 14, 2010 | Bible Study

(PART 1)

We don’t have to understand why difficult things happen in order to trust God’s loving intentions toward us.



READ: Prov. 3:5-6; Is. 55:8-9; Is. 63:9; John 3:16; John 11:25-26; Heb. 4:15-16.
HEART ISSUE: When painful things happen, do you respond with discouragement or with faith in God’s power and love?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You for Your faithful love toward me. Help me to trust You when the circumstances around me are difficult to understand. Amen.

(PART 2)

The times in life when we see the most spiritual growth are also the seasons of intense stretching. It’s those times that make us better equipped to take on the challenges and the blessings that God has for us in the future.

READ: Ps. 31:19-24; Ps. 37:3-7; Ps. 103:11-17; Eph. 1:18-21; Eph. 3:17-19; Rom. 8:18-28.
HEART ISSUE: Look back over a difficult time in your life and ask, “What did God reveal to me about Himself?”
PRAYER: Father, show me who You are in the midst of my life’s circumstances. Let each difficulty I face teach me what I need to learn about trusting and obeying You. Amen.
