Big IdeaSince God is trustworthy, I can trust Him with my life and future.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”  (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)

“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 Message)

1. Trust God with all your heart

TRUST: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something one in which confidence is placed.  

  • When things are good do you trust Him?
  • When things are bad do you trust Him?
  • When things turn out differently than you thought they should do you trust Him?

2.  Don’t rely on your own knowledge

  • When you are faced with difficult decisions who do you turn to first?
  • Do you even talk to God? Or do you simply try to figure things out yourself?
  • Do you listen to your friends’ advice more than God?

3.  Acknowledge God in all you do

  • What area(s) of your life are you keeping God from?
  • What are the things you want so much that you do not invite God into the issue?

Discussion Questions

  • How do you tend to handle the difficult situations of your life?  Who do you turn to first (self or God)?  Why?
  • Why do you think trust is such a big deal to God?  Do you think we can have a real relationship with Him without trusting Him?  Why or why not?
  • What area(s) of your life are you keeping God from?
  • What are the things you want so much that you do not invite God into the issue?
  • How can you apply what we talked about tonight to your life this week?
