FIRE IN MY BONES Part 6: Buy a Field-Hope Revealed
Jeremiah 32:1-3a, 6-15; Romans 5:1-4
1. Jerusalem was going to be surrounded by the Babylonians, what things in your life are like that army (even creating a barrier to what God wants you to do)?
2. Jeremiah said, "I knew that this was the word of the Lord" (v. 8). How do YOU know that it is God speaking to you?
3. Have you ever figuratively (or literally) purchased a field? If so, what happened to "it."?
4. How do you feel if you "invest" in something of God, but don't see the results as quickly as you would like?
5. God calls all of us to something, what are some things that God is calling you to now (even in spite of barriers or challenges)?
6. Jeremiah said, "so I bought the field." Consider Jeremiah's response to God here. What does this tell us about his faith?
7. Read Romans 5:1-4. Jeremiah's story was one of faith and hope. Consider these verses & Jeremiah's story in your life - are you acting in faith and hoping for what God is going to do?
8. God often calls us to partner with others. In your life, who could you partner with to "buy a field." Dream about what God would want to do with it.
9. How do you feel led to pray?
Study Challenge Week 6
There are two texts per day. One way to worship God intentionally is twice per day, with one verse in the morning and one in the evening.
First, be silent in prayer for 1 minute.
Second, thank God for 2 specific things.
Third, invite Jesus to speak to you by asking these 3 questions.
1. What are these verses trying to say?
2. Who is He inviting me to share this with?
3. How can I use these verses to help me in my walk with Christ?
Finish in prayer for yourself, your family, your neighbors, your co-workers, your church.
