Big Idea

Because in Christ God is our refuge and he fights for us, we’re able to relax our grip on our circumstances and rest with confidence in his strength, even if the whole world falls apart.

Application

‘Be still and know that I am God’ – practice the habit of stopping your fretting behaviour and in their place develop the habit of being still and contemplating God’s strength, his sovereignty, his victory and his commitment to you, in Jesus.

To Think About

  1. What aspects (try to be specific) of your life at the moment make you feel as though the earth is moving and you are being overwhelmed by a flood?  How is Jesus your refuge in these things? 
  2. In what ways is Jesus fighting for us in this difficult time? 
  3. What steps can we take to follow God’s command to “Be still and know that I am God.” 

This might mean sharing a meal. It might mean sharing tea/coffee/dessert. This is time to catch up and share life.

Read Psalm 46

Going around the room, so each person gets to speak, share one sentence reflecting on the bible talk/bible reading. What was most helpful to you?

What does this mean to me?
What are the significant issues that were raised for you personally?
Are there questions that stand out for you more than others?
What did others think was the main issue and why?

What do you feel about what is being said in this passage? How does it impact you emotionally?

What is one area where God might be challenging you to make a change?
