Discuss in your group the process of learning something new.
Read Philippians 4:10-14. How did Paul do this? What did Paul say he had learned? What was the “secret” he had learned?
Let’s apply the same principles to Learning to Trust God in all circumstances by looking at the life of Moses.
Discuss the difference between a person ‘responding’ or ‘reacting’ to something happening in their life? Look at each of the following circumstances in Moses life and discuss these questions.
Killing the Egyptian. Exodus 2:11-15.
The Burning Bush. Exodus 3:1-4:17. What was the real reason for Moses ‘pleading’ in Exodus 4:13?
Moses complaint to God after his first encounter with Pharaoh, Exodus 5:22-23 though God had already told him what Pharaoh’s response would be! Exodus 4:21.
God’s command to Moses to return to Pharaoh. Exodus 6:9-13. Especially see Moses objections to the Lord. Exodus 6:12, 6:30.
Read Exodus 11:1-11, especially Exodus 11:8.
Read Exodus 14:13-14, 21, 27.
Compare the People of Israel’s behaviour in Exodus 14:10-12, 31, 15:22-24 also ask:
With the questions above in mind why do you think there was a different response with Caleb and Joshua than the other 10 spies?
Discuss God’s response in Numbers 14:11.
Discuss the following:
Growth is a process. As we practice and learn to look to the Lord in prayer immediately we have a challenging circumstance come into our lives focusing on His promises we will respond in faith believing His Word. This will help to minimize the effect of the challenging circumstance as we draw from His power and receive His peace. Philippians 4:6-7. The more we do this we develop God pleasing habits which then become our automatic response as we have seen with Moses.
