God Looks at the Heart

By January 12, 2020Mt Pleasant Sermons

Bible Study

Don’t just take our word for it . . . take His! We would encourage you to spend time examining the following Scriptures that shaped this sermon: Jeremiah 29. 10-14 and Romans 8.26-39.

Sermon Outline

  1. The kingdom is never stagnant.
  2. If we know God’s character and his deep devotion and unconditional love for the people
    with whom He is in Covenant, we will be able to wait with hope.
  3. Prayer is cooperation with God to see His kingdom come and His will be done on
    earth as it is in heaven.

Sermon Application

  • Since God knows the plans He has for us, why do you think we have to discover them forourselves? (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • What is a key component aiding our discovery of his plans for us?
  • Why do you think we sometimes settle for good and not best?
  • If the kingdom is never stagnant and His promises are unfailing, how can we apply this truth to our lives?
  • How does understanding God’s character help us in our quest for the greater yes?
  • What is the biggest obstacle to your praying: “ God’s will be done”?

The outline and application questions are intended for your further reflection and action upon the weekend message. They are also designed to facilitate discussion and accountability within your LifeGroup.
