Title: Pivot Upon Godly Perspectives
Series: Pivot

Text: Phil 4:11-13, Heb 10:24-25, Isa 40:30-31

It is said that change is the only constant. For us to remain anchored in the storm, we need unchanging perspectives on how we should live in changing times. What are some godly perspectives we can pivot on?

1) Living with Humility & Contentment (Philippians 4:11-13)
Part of being humble before God is our ability to recognize His provision for us in all seasons. In this difficult time, what are some things that you can give thanks to God for? When we experience ups or downs in our life, it easy to focus on the circumstances rather than on God Himself. Have we been focusing more on our circumstances rather than on our relationship with God? Why is it important that we do not focus too much on our circumstances? What can we do to help us focus on our relationship with God more?

2) Living with Helpfulness & Community (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Why is it important for us to be connected to other believers? What are some elements in Christian fellowships that make the gathering meaningful? Share an instance where a Christ-centred fellowship spurred you on in your walk with God. What are some benefits of meeting face to face rather than via online platforms? How can your lifegroup build a culture of helpfulness and community?

3) Living with Hope & Confidence (Isaiah 40:30-31)
What are some things in your life that you want to entrust to God? How does Christ’s work on the cross give you hope in the midst of challenges? Let us commit our concerns and troubles to prayer as a life group. How can we continue to partner with God to bring a message of hope to the people outside the church, especially in the current climate?
