We are encouraging all small groups to go through the Anchored study. You can find everything you need at gethope.net/anchored. We will offer a shortened message-based study from now through the end of the year to allow your group to go through Anchored. If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Abraham is held up as an example of faith in the Bible – not because he was perfect (he was far from it) but because he had enough faith to respond to God immediately, even when he didn’t understand fully or when the promise didn’t come immediately.
Genesis 17:1-5, 16-19
Genesis 21: 1-3, 7

Apply the Message
We learned this week that fear is often the factor that prevents us from obeying God without hesitation. God is looking for people who have just enough faith in Him to do what He asks.
Ask yourself this week:
- What is keeping you from being fully obedient to God?
- Where in your life is fear holding you back from obedience?
- If you are trusting God, in what area of your life do you need to trust Him for more?
