this week's big 3

1. Scripture

Exodus 6:2-8

2. Idea

Sometimes we have to remember who God has been in our past, to trust that the same God is with us in our present.

3. Questions

-  Does the way you trust God in difficult seasons, show that you trust God is in control of your life?  Or do you often find yourself trying to be the hero of your life?
- Are there things in your life, difficulties, discouragements, etc, that are making it difficult to trust in God’s plan/timing?
- What small step do you need to take today to trust that God is in control?
