Week 14/Day 3: Relying on God’s Strength

Memory Verse

Write the verse on a note card or sticky and put it where you’ll see it multiple times today.

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26

Spiritual Discipline

Have you had a chance to talk over your limits with God? If not, be sure and schedule a time. Here’s the link to the prayer guide one more time (it’s on the third page): going-deeper-week-14-relying-on-gods-strength-homework

Day 3

Read 2 Corinthians 1:8-10

What did Paul and his companions experience in Asia? How great was the burden they felt?

According to Paul, what was the purpose of this season of great affliction?

Paul and his friends followed the Spirit’s direction, yet continually ended up in desperate situations. Paul wants Believers to know, be aware, God allows difficulties and great afflictions so we will learn to rely on God’s strength and not our own.

How do you expect things to work out if you closely follow God’s leading? Do you turn from God or toward God when things go badly after you’ve chosen His way? Why or why not?

How can you begin to increase your reliance on God’s strength during a difficult time?
