Saved By God's But: When Your Plans Haven't Worked Out

We provide questions each week based on the theme of our service for our Verve Groups to use. If you're not in a Verve Group, feel free to use them on your own.
This week we started the series called Saved By God's But and talked about "When You're Plans Haven't Worked Out". If you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. What's your favorite Easter candy and why?
  2. Tell us about a time that your plans got messed up.
  3. Have you ever had a time where God messed up your plans? If so, tell us about it. If not, tell us about a time when you may have witnessed God messing up someone else's plans.
  4. What do you think is the difference between someone else messing up your plans and God messing up your plans? Why?
  5. Why do you think it's difficult to hear God when he speaks to us?
  6. Do you believe you were made for a purpose? Why or why not?
  7. Read Jeremiah 29:11 in the Old Testament of the Bible. How can this verse help when you want to blame God for your plans getting messed up?
  8. Are you going to bow down to God's authority in every area in your life? Why or why not?
  9. What makes it hard to trust God's plan over your own plan?
  10. Weekly Check In Question:  What could we be praying for you this week? (Is there something good we could celebrate with you, or a challenge you need God's help with?)
