Can we trust God…
when there’s nothing left? (01/11/20)

How to watch on YouTube/Smart TV

Join us after the service for Zoom Coffee & Chat from 11:30am – 12.

Use these in Growth Groups or alone:

  • At some points in today’s story, God provides; at others he doesn’t. When have you known God to provide -or not – for you?
  • Why do you think God sometimes provides and at other times doesn’t?
  • How did you feel about the story of the two people on the plane in the Skit Guys video?

Extra Questions (eg for Growth Groups or personal reflection):

  • Re-read the story in 1Kings 17. Imagine yourself in Elijah’s shoes, then in the widow’s shoes. How would you feel at each stage in the story?
  • The widow in the story does everything that God and Elijah ask of her. God then provides for her. Why do you think God still allows her son to die?
  • When you think of God as provider. In what ways is God’s relationship with us like a parent to a child? In what ways is it different?

Extra Background
