Questions to help you dig deeper into the message
(for your small group or family devotions)
What stood out/ministered to you most in this message?
Talk about a time when you felt you knew God had called you to something, but He made you wait. What was going through your mind during that season of waiting in the dark?
Read Acts 1:4 and 2:1-4. Jesus died on the cross on Passover, then the Holy Spirit fell on the day of Pentecost, which is 50 days after Passover… this means that the disciples went back to Jerusalem and WAITED for nearly 10 days for the thing Jesus had promised them (the Holy Spirit)! Why do you think Jesus had them wait that long?
What are some reasons God might want us to wait in the dark? Read the following Scriptures and discuss each of them: Isaiah 40:31, Isaiah 30:18, Psalm 27:13-14, Psalm 37:7-9, and Lamentations 3:25-26.
