Case Studies: David & Goliath

August 19, 2012

"I used to ask God to help me. Then I asked if I might help Him. I ended up by asking God to do His work though me." - Hudson Taylor (19th Century missionary in China)

  1. How easy or difficult is it for me to accept that I am a beloved child of God? Why do I think that is the case for me?
  2. When in my life have I expected God to act and it seemed God did not? How has that experience impacted my understanding of and relationship with God?
  3. Are my prayers more frequently, "God, help me", "God, let me help You", or "God, please do Your work through me"?
  4. What, if anything, is exciting me these days about my relationship with God? What, if anything, is frustrating me? What might my next step be?
