Week 9: Look Through Not At

Sermon date: March 10

Scripture

Practice: Reflect

  • Reflect on hardships in your life and how God worked through those situations.
    Psalm 103:2 – “forget not his benefits”
  • How did (is) God forgiving, healing, redeeming, crowning, satisfying and giving good things to you?
  • Share this with someone else.

This would be a great week to listen and pray along with the Prayer Wheel. Listen on Spotify >>

Additional Life Group Questions

Scripture for study: Psalm 103

Use the questions below if your group is not doing the 3/3rds model or if you need more questions for your Looking Up or Looking Forward time.

  • Do you like your job? why or why not? Would you keep it if you inherited a million dollars?
  • Which do you tend to be: a complainer or a praiser? Satisfied or dissatisfied? Why? Has affliction made you positive or negative? Why?
  • Like other ancient Jews, David believed prosperity to be a sign of God’s favor and illness a sign of personal sin (see John 5:5-15). Do you think healing is a sign of forgiveness? Is disease a result of unconfessed sin? Why or why not?
  • Does your experience with your father or mother resemble the picture of God in verse 13? Does this image help you? Can God’s knowing how you are formed comfort you (verse 14)?
  • When have you experienced God’s grace firsthand? How have you benefited from it?
  • Whom do you treat as he or she deserves? What would it mean to bring God’s grace into that situation?
