Discipleship group questions

 

Launching questions

 

  • Read Isaiah 36:4-20 and 37:14-20 aloud together. What do you remember most from the teaching on Sunday? What stood out to you as you read through these texts this time?
  • If you were asked to define what it means to trust God, what would you say? What if you were asked what trusting God looks like practically in your own life? How would you respond?

 

Encourage

 

  • Share a time when you trusted God in some significant way and had your faith deepened as a result. In other words, share a story of God’s faithfulness and its impact on you.
  • Reread Hezekiah’s prayer in Isaiah 37:14-20. Would you say you’ve experienced the “power of prayer”? How so? Do you struggle with consistency in prayer in spite of that/those experience(s)? Why do you think that is?

 

Challenge

 

  • What tends to compete most strongly with your trust in God? If you had to name a rival “god” in your life, what would it be (eg—comfort, security, power, control, pleasure, etc.)? How does that “god” function in your day-to-day pursuits/decision making, etc.?
  • Finish your time by sharing one area of your life in which you’d like to trust in the promises of God more deeply (finances, relationships, family, goals, career, etc). Take some time to think/talk through this and then lift each other up in prayer.
