Opening

What are you waiting for in life right now?

Diving Deeper
  1. Why is waiting so difficult?
  2. When you’re waiting, what’s your mental state? Do you have a positive or negative outlook?
  3. All throughout the Bible, we see examples of people who had to wait: Abraham, David, Joseph, and Jesus are but a few examples. Why do you think God chooses waiting as a means to strengthen us?
  4. C.S. Lewis once said, “I am sure that God keeps no one waiting unless He sees that it’s good for him to wait!” What do you think of that statement? Do you agree or disagree?
  5. When you look back at your life, are there times where periods of waiting actually worked for your benefit?
  6. Waiting is not a passive activity. Do you agree or disagree with that statement? Why?
  7. When Paul writes that God works “for the good of those who love Him” in Romans 8:28, what does that mean to you? What does it look like for God to work “for your good”?
  8. Are you willing to listen to God, even if the answer isn’t what you want? Why or why not?
  9. What can you do right now to wait with intention?
