In my last post I discussed the first question we use in our K-Groups to begin the discussion process each week. “What has been your biggest struggle this week?” is the question that allows us to get started.
The second question we use is: “What has been your greatest blessing this week?”
Again, we want to allow everyone in the group to be open and honest. We want each person to share how they feel God has been faithful to them. Again, this is a biblical idea. Returning to 1 Kings 19, when Elijah was in his bad place. He had experienced his greatest struggle. He was running from everyone, trying to hide from his struggle. And in that moment, God was faithful to him. God provided for him.
“And he lay down and slept under a broom tree. And behold, an angel touched him and said to him, “Arise and eat.” And he looked, and behold, there was at his head a cake baked on hot stones and a jar of water. And he ate and drank and lay down again. And the angel of the Lord came again a second time and touched him and said, “Arise and eat, for the journey is too great for you.” And he arose and ate and drank, and went in the strength of that food forty days and forty nights to Horeb, the mount of God.” – 1 KINGS 19:5-8
It does us good to remember that, even in the midst of our struggle, God has been faithful to us. Even when things are hard and we tend to run from him, He seeks us and protects us. In the middle of the challenge, we can see that God is for our good and His glory.
So often we see someone’s struggle from a previous week become their greatest blessing in following weeks. When this does, it leaves each of us in a state of worship to the faithfulness of our God.
On the next post I will share with you our third question used in K-Groups.
