Experiencing God: You must make major adjustments in your life to join God in what He is doing
Based upon the Workbook by Henry Blackaby
We have studied that God is always at work around us (John 5:17, 19-20) and pursues a continuing love relationship with you that is real and personal (Romans 3:10-12). We learned that when God reveals what He is doing, it is an invitation for us to join Him in His work (Exodus 3:1-14), and we looked at how God speaks (Genesis 22:1-18), we saw how responding to God by faith leads to God-sized tasks that attracts the world to Him (Joshua 6:1-16, 20-21); Now we will study how major adjustments in our lives are necessary in order to obey God (1Kings 19:15-21 & Luke 18:18-27). As a family, reread these verses and review the sermon notes.
Review the MEMORY VERSE (Luke 14:33). Let’s hide the Word of God in our heart! MEDITATE; what does the verse say to you? Pray for understanding. Review verses: John 15:5 , John 8:47, & Heb. 11:6 Review, Review, Review!
DISCUSS: What did I learn in the Sunday School lesson and the sermon about experiencing God through a crisis of belief that requires faith and action?
After having reviewed the Scriptures above, on a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the intimacy and quality of your walk with God? Allow time for family members to respond. What, if any, adjustments do you think God wants you to make to renew a consistent, right relationship with Him? Read Matt 7:7-8; discuss how these verses might help you make any needed adjustments that God has revealed to you.
Finish your time with The Lord and your family in prayer asking Him for the type of relationship that you desire with Him and your family – Then wait expecting Him to answer (Ps 5:3)! Spend some time alone with Him this week!
