**Sillim CG leaders – If the majority of your group attended the retreat, then please have some time sharing with each other how you were blessed at the retreat. Please feel free to alter some of the questions or ask different ones. Also, not every member has to share or respond for each question. Blessings! – JM

  1. As Pastor JM shared about the traps of pride and insecurity, which do you feel is more of a struggle for you, and in what way? What are some of the ways God has been helping you develop more humility and confidence?
  2. What were some of the ways God has revealed promises to you? What were some of the signs or confirmations God gave you after receiving one of His promises?
  3. What are some of your fears of opening up about the promises God has given you? Why is it important to be careful about who you open up with about a personal promise from God, especially shortly after receiving the promise?
  4. Read Luke 1:39-56. How did Mary respond to her relative Elizabeth’s confirmation? How can opening up to a trusted church leader or pastor help you in carrying God’s promises? Share a personal experience if you have one.
  5. What are some of the ways you can treasure the signs and confirmations God gives to you regarding His promises for you?
