This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner. Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job.

KEY POINTS FROM SUNDAY MORNING SERVICE

  1. When walking out God’s plan, we shouldn’t be surprised by struggles.

  2. Embrace that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced when following Him.

  3. Don’t jump to conclusions thinking that God is not on the job.

  4. We cannot base our theology (our view of God) based on the current circumstances.


DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. When have you experienced a time when you were telling Jesus about your circumstance and He was telling you about himself? (See John 5:8 reference)

  2. Is there an area of your life that you have jumped to the conclusion that God isn’t leading you in that area?

  3. Is there a person in your life needs to be reminded of Jesus’s voice to tell them not to lay back down? Is that person you?
