Here are this week’s Reflection & Discussion Questions
Just because we are following the Lord, it does not mean we will not have difficult times.
In Psalm 56:3, David said: “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” What are you afraid of today and how can you trust God more?
David couldn’t go home, or go see Samuel or Jonathan and he couldn’t go to the house of the Lord. In a humble cave he found refuge.
How is God your refuge and safe place, in times of discouragement?
Jonathan could not rescue David but he could strengthen him.
Is there someone in your life who is in an inescapable trial? You may not be able to rescue them but how can you strengthen them today?
Rather than taking matters into his own hands, David trusted God to judge and avenge him against Saul.
What situation in your life, do you need to trust yourself less and trust God more?
There is a great contrast between Abigail and her husband Nabal. Abigail was god-fearing, gentle and humble despite being stuck in a mismatched marriage.
Are you stuck in a relationship that is mismatched perhaps with a boss, co-worker, family member or spouse? How can you remain gentle and humble in this difficult situation?
