Last discussion was about the Journey? Is manhood a journey or a destination? This week was about Trust in God. You see we cannot have any of the five Big Rocks without trusting God.
What does Trusting God look like?
Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us – Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
As we walked through the discussion with the boys and dads we each brought up examples of trusting God and our how our relationship with our Dads affects our relationship with God?
We also looked at the great example that Jesus left us with trusting his Father.
In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus prays and trusts his Father, Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”
You see Jesus is our the model for the 5 big rocks!
Jesus is our model for the 5 Big Rocks. He always trusted God, knew his Word, prayed fervently, built relationships, and served others. Let’s look at Jesus as our perfect example of trusting God.
Romans 15:13 – May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I think the boys and dads left with an impression of what trust is and how sometimes our trust can be broken in our own sinfulness but we can always trust God.
Next week we will embark on KNOWING God’s Word and PRAY ING fervently.
Also the meeting will be moved to Wed. Oct 28th due to the next two Thursdays not being available
Thank you to all the participants and praise God for this wonderful opportunity to bless us with fellowship in his word.
