A Mighty Fortress

June 9, 2019 Speaker: AJ Roberts Series: Journey to Joy

Passage: Psalm 125:1–125:5

Those who trust in the LORD aren't like the restless seas, uncertain winds, or even like the ever-shifting sands, but are like a mountain: strong, stable, and secure. As God ransoms sinners, he gives them a good, fleshly heart, and this great work secures their eternal protection and promise. Wickedness will befall the redeemed, but the unwavering hope of Christ's commitment to them remains, causing saints of old and of today to lift their eyes and voices as they rest in the peace of God. 

 

Reading Plan:

Monday: Psalm 120

Tuesday: Psalm 121

Wednesday: Psalm 122

Thursday: Psalm 123

Friday: Psalm 124

Saturday: Psalm 125

Sunday: Psalm 126

 

Questions: 

  1. ICEBREAKER: Pastor AJ opened with the story of slipping on a wiffle ball. When you see someone fall, what's your first reaction? To help or to chuckle? 
  2. Psalm 125 drives the believer to clear application: trust. What do you think it means to trust God? 
  3. "Trust is rooted in something, and that something is belief." Why is the link between belief and trust so crucial for the people of God? 
  4. How might a Big Picture Focus influence Christians in the middle of a particularly challenging season? What about a season of ease? 
  5. Psalm 14 says, "There is none who does good, not even one." Why do you think this is such an important reality to understand and believe? 
  6. When facing any situation, do you tend to ask yourself, "What does the Bible say about this"? What steps can we take to make this our first reaction to any situation? 
  7. Our 3 missionary families often feel the strain of working, doing and achieving. Take time as a group to pray, most of all, that their trust would be in God and not in the works of their own hands.
