Genesis 16:1-4; Proverbs 3:5-6; Matthew 6:34
1. What thing, person or situation do you feel the deepest need to control?
2. Read Genesis 16:1-4. How did Sarai and Abram’s desire to control the situation ultimately affect their life and relationships?
3. Read Proverbs 3:5-6: Why is it sometimes hard to trust God in all areas of your life—especially the areas beyond your control?
4. Read Matthew 6:34: In what ways are you personally afraid of the uncertain future? In what ways do you demonstrate a desire to control that future?
Think about a time when uncertainty led to you trying to take control of an uncontrollable situation. How did that turn out? What lessons did you learn from it? How can you better trust God in those situations going forward? How can you better discern if the situation is even controllable or not?
