Personal Reflection & Small Group Questions

Please complete this study on your own, then bring it to your small group for discussion.

Individual Reflection:

  1. Jesus often took time to be alone to pray. Do you have a regular practice of being alone with God in prayer? If not, what steps can you take to incorporate this practice into your daily routine?
  2. Reflect on a time when you experienced Jesus' provision in your life, both physically and spiritually. How did this experience affect your faith and trust in Him?
  3. Read Psalm 23. How does understanding Jesus as our Shepherd change the way we view our relationship with Him? In what ways does this perspective provide comfort and guidance in your life?

Small Group Reflection:

  1. Share a time when you experienced God's provision in a surprising or miraculous way. How did it impact your faith? What can we learn from each other's experiences about God's faithfulness?
  2. Why does Jesus value solitude and prayer so highly? Discuss how we can follow His example in our busy lives. What practical steps can we take to ensure we are setting aside time for prayer and reflection?
  3. Discuss a time when you felt overwhelmed or fearful. How did you experience Jesus' presence and peace during that time? How can we remind each other that Jesus is our Shepherd when we face life's storms and challenges?
