Allowing God to speak
One of the most interesting small groups I’ve ever been apart of started when three of us from church decided to get together and pray. After a while we thought it would be good to do some Bible study. So we would randomly pick a psalm and during the week we would read it several times expecting God to speak to us from that psalm. When we met the next week we would share what God had said to us. We wouldn’t use a commentary or study guide, we would just allow God to speak to us through His Word. As the leader of the group it was a bit daunting. I mean what if God didn’t say anything to me and I had nothing to share? We ran the group that way for about a semester and God never left me with nothing to share. Then circumstances changed and we didn’t continue meeting. If we continued I would have liked to have moved on to other books of the Bible, but Psalms was a good place to start.
