Shhh...It Happens: How to Stay Calm When It Hits the Fan: Guidance Happens

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 concluded the series called Shhh. It Happens: How to stay calm when it hits the fan and talked about Guidance HappensIf you missed it, you can listen to it here.
  1. Do you prefer making your own decisions or would you rather someone make decisions for you? Why?
  2. When you have to make an important decision in your life, what's the first thing you typically do?
  3. Read Isaiah 55:8-9 in the Old Testament of the Bible. When your will is different from God's will, what makes it so difficult to trust Him?
  4. Who have you been trusting more lately? God or yourself? Why?
  5. Are your intentions when you ask God for guidance usually pure or are they motivated by what you want?
  6. In the message this weekend, Vince quoted a pastor who said, "If you aren't willing to listen to everything God has to say, you eventually won't hear anything he has to say."
    • Why do you think it's true that if we don't listen to and obey what God wants, eventually he won't speak to us or we just won't hear what he's saying?
  7. How can you get better at seeking God's guidance when life happens?
  8. 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?)
