David's Escape

May 5, 2024    Pastor Jeremy Roh

Discussion Questions:

1. David trusted in God's protection rather than relying solely on his own abilities. He found security and refuge in the presence of God, even when faced with danger. In what areas of your life do you tend to rely on your own strength instead of trusting in God's protection? How can you cultivate a deeper sense of reliance on God?

2. David waited patiently for God's timing, even when it meant enduring difficult circumstances. He resisted the temptation to take matters into his own hands and instead trusted that God would fulfill His promises in due time. Share about a time when you struggled to wait for God's timing. What lessons did you learn through that experience, and how did it impact your faith?

3. The sovereignty of God encompasses His protection, timing, and plan for our lives. Trusting in God's sovereignty means surrendering our own desires and plans, believing that His purposes will ultimately prevail. In what ways do you find it challenging to surrender control to God and embrace His sovereignty? How might fully trusting in God's sovereignty change your perspective on your current circumstances?

4. In times of distress or anxiety, Paul and David both turned to prayer and sought the support of fellow believers. They understood the power of united prayer and the importance of relying on God's strength. How has prayer and the support of other Christians helped you navigate difficult seasons in your life? What steps can you take to deepen your prayer life and build stronger connections with fellow believers?

5. David's escape from Saul was not just about running away from danger but running to God. In the face of problems and enemies, we are called to find refuge in God's presence and trust in His love and care for us. When you face challenges or opposition, is your first instinct to run to God or to rely on your own resources? How can you cultivate a heart that consistently seeks God as your ultimate source of strength and guidance?
