Stand In Faith
Stand In Faith
Start your discussion by reviewing Pastor Craig’s key points.
This week’s text is Daniel 10:5-19.
“Sometimes God has something just for you that others wouldn’t understand.”
“The strongest of men cannot bear the weight of the glory of God.”
Three things to remember when standing in faith:
- God cares about you more than you do. “You are very precious to God. Not only does God love you, He likes you.”
- God is doing more than you understand. “Since the first time you prayed, God heard the cry of your heart!”
- God’s strength is made perfect in your weakness. “Until you understand your weakness, you won’t appreciate God’s strength.”
How deep do you want to take your group? Choose from these suggestions to lead your discussion.
- What’s your prayer life like right now? Hit-and-miss? Thriving? Non-existent?
- How would life be different if you were confident that God cares about you?
- Talk about a time you prayed for something and God answered your prayer.
- Talk about a time you prayed hard for something, but you felt it wasn’t answered the way you wanted it.
- Share a time when you saw God’s glory and faithfulness.
- What’s a personal weakness you have that God has used to show His strength?
- What are you currently praying and believing God for?
- Tell about a time when your faith was tested. How did you get through it? How did God show up in that situation?
- Do you really believe God truly cares about you? Why or why not?
- Tell about a time when you were in a weak place in your life and you needed to call on God. Why did you go to God instead of trying to get through it on your own?
