What stood out to you most in this message?

Read 1 Kings 17:1-7. Pastor John pointed out that though we experience God’s grace and provision everyday, God also gives us specific provision, to accomplish specific tasks, at specific times. He referenced the fact that God did not give him the grace to be a father until he became a father. How have you experienced God’s specific grace or provision for a specific task or circumstance as you followed his lead in your own life?

How do we learn to have “sit in the chair” faith in God?

Pastor John mentioned that when God called Elijah to do a specific work he dried up the water that he was using to meet Elijah’s needs. Elijah had to step forward in faith that God would still provide. How do we handle the uncertainty of following God when we know that he will provide for our needs, but we cannot see how God plans to provide for our needs?
