  8. Read the following Spurgeon quote:

    “Get a hold of just that promise which is suitable to your case. You say, is there one? Why, would you have a list of blessings, you have them here in the catalogue of promises: promises of peace, honour, success, plenty; promises of preservation from trouble, support under it, deliverance out of it; promises in sickness, childbearing, old age, famine, poverty, war, slander, reproach; promises to the stranger, the exile, the poor, the helpless, the fatherless, the widow, the prisoner, the captive, the dying; promises of justification, pardon for sin, adoption, union and communion with the Church, access to God; promises of wisdom, knowledge, divine teaching; promises beyond mention—promises of every grace and of every blessing—we cannot pause to mention them all.”

    Break up into groups of 3. Share a struggle or an issue that you have in your life. As a group, search the Bible for a promise of God for each of your cases.
