Are you facing a problem in life that you just can't fix, no matter what you do? Perhaps you've heard the phrase "Let go and let God." But it's easier said than done. Is it possible that giving up on what you can't change is God's path to peace for your life? In this six-week Bible study of Jesus in the wilderness, Barb explores Jesus' time of testing and contrasts it with the Israelites' failures in the wilderness. As you learn from Jesus' example, you'll discover six principles that will equip you to let God lead you to victory despite your circumstances as you deal with the problems and pain you are facing:
1. Recognize You Can’t Handle It
2. Stop Following Your Feelings
3. Give Up Control and Reach for God
4. Embrace God’s Better Blessing
5. Let Go of Fear
6. Develop the Habit of Obedience
If you're tired of following your feelings or being disappointed by unchanging circumstances, learn how to surrender like Jesus and experience God's power and peace in your life as never before.
Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Participant Workbook and Leader Guide.
In Session 4, we’re reminded that pursuing what we want or expect in life will always leave our souls in great need. We will never find happiness in power, people, places, or things. Barb offers us this memorable surrender principle: “Trusting God’s promises will bless me, but pushing my plans will stress me.”
