Our Powerful Helper (6 session study)
God provides comfort when you need it most, and the power to persevere.
"The following 6-session course is by Marshall Shelley, written within a year after the deaths of two of his children. During Marshall and his wife's desperate turning to Scripture, they discovered how God gives strength to his people in difficult times. These six studies focus on six sections of the Bible that offered them fresh glimpses of how God works.
Through these six studies, you'll learn that God does provide comfort when you need it most, and the power to persevere. Also included is a foreword by J.I. Packer, an introduction to the course, suggestions for individual or group study, and Leader's Notes."
Power in Weakness
2 Corinthians 12:1-10
Character is what you are when no one is looking. It is what your life stands for and what values you live by. It takes longer for character to be revealed, but character is what shows when life gets tough.
The Blazing Furnace
When we place our faith in Christ, life does not suddenly grow calm. We need strength more than ever. But we need to learn how God's strength comes to us.
Chariots of Fire
2 Kings 6:8-23
Sometimes the best gifts are those we least expect, maybe even gifts we didn't think we wanted—until we saw their true value.
God's Invisible Direction
God has provided a means of facing our fears. One of the most familiar passages in the Bible deals with our daily dependence on God—turning to him in times of both fear and refreshment.
God's Unpredictable Justice
Habakkuk struggled to understand how God works, but in the end he became convinced that he could trust God no matter how bleak or confusing the present circumstances appeared to be.
Going Right to the Top
"Sometimes it seems that God enjoys turning things upside down. But one direction is very clear: he invites us to talk to him directly. Through prayer, we can go right to the top."
