On Sunday, February 3, 2019, Matthew preached the message “The Hidden Providence of God” from Genesis 36-37 as part of our current series, re:creation. Below are a few discussion questions for Community Group or personal study this week. To listen to the message again, visit our Audio Resources page.
1. Matthew taught that your world is not the product of chance, rather, all is directed by “the hidden providence of God”. What does this mean?
2. How do we observe God’s providence when we see those who are not following the LORD proper? Similarly, how do we see God’s providence when those who do follow the LORD suffer? Is there a time in your life when you saw this tangibly play out?
3. What makes the previous question uncomfortable for you? Is the thought of God’s providence in our suffering a new concept or one that you have worked through before?
4. After hearing the message, how have you begun to identify the providence of God in your life, both through your suffering and through your prospering? How can we better remind one another of God’s grace in the midst of our suffering?
