Look Unto Him

March 31, 2019 Speaker: AJ Roberts Series: Journey to Joy

Passage: Psalm 121:1–121:8

On this side of eternity, saints of all time and space have faced uncertain futures. We may calculate plans and schedule our lives to great detail, but the reality remains: we have no control of what lies ahead. We can either adopt the lie that we are in control, or we can rest in the One who has made heaven and earth. In the latter, we find an everlasting help that is sustained and secured by Jesus himself.

 

Reading Plan: 

Monday - Psalm 127

Tuesday - Psalm 128

Wednesday - Psalm 129

Thursday - Psalm 130

Friday - Psalm 131

Saturday - Psalm 132

Sunday - Psalm 133 

 

Questions: 

  1. ICEBREAKER: For those ancient pilgrims, the journey to Jerusalem was a rough one. What is the strangest or harshest conditions you've ever traveled under? 
  2. Psalm 121 is both a personal and corporate song of worship. How are these two realities reconciled? What implication does that leave us with today?
  3. What does it mean for Christians that "He will not let your foot be moved"?
  4. How does the Lord use the local church to "keep" His people? Is church membership important? Is it biblical? Why or why not? 
  5. "When we are in the clouds, we must not navigate by our feelings or senses. Instead, we must trust God's guidance system: his Word and Promises". Why is this so pivotal for our spiritual health? 
  6. Was there any other part of the sermon that impacted you? Where were you most encouraged, intrigued, and/or challenged?
  7. Our missionary families face many uncertainties. Where will they live? How will they handle education? When is it wise to tell fellow Christians about their work? Take time as a group to pray for them, asking the Lord to cause these families to lift their eyes and see him as God the Helper. Hold the rope.
