Message: When Words Fail Week 2: Defiant Hope (Psalm 27)
- It’s a natural response in times like these to find an escape from the craziness that surrounds us. What are your go to “escapes” in times like this? Where are you prone to stay too long when the going gets tough?
- A stronghold is a strategic place of strength in the battle – a position not only of protection, but a place to fight back. How has God been (a) a place of rest in this season and (b) the place where you’ve found strength to fight back?
- When we run from the battle, we’re running from God. As the battles rage both inside and outside of us, how have you seen God at work in your life in spite of your circumstances?
- There is power in naming the enemies that we face – and then bringing those enemies before the God who fights for us. What enemy are you facing now? Anxiety? Fear? Loneliness? Depression? Take a moment and ask God to be your stronghold within this season. Ask him to fight for you and with you!
Give Courage. The word encourage literally means to “give courage.” In a time of isolation and fear, we need the encouraging words of our brothers and sisters in Christ more than ever. This week, be intentional about reaching out to and speaking life into 3-5 people in your life. Ask them about the battles they are facing. If you feel comfortable, pray for them. Together, we can not only rely on the strength of God in our battles, but the strength of one another.
