Key Thought: We can and must trust God in times of difficulty.

Discussion #1: The Reaction

We often react to difficulties the natural (carnal) way by murmuring.

Share some of the gripes / complains you have in your life.

Discussion #2: The Response

Moses did not complain to others, but he brought his difficulty to the Lord in prayer. The Lord immediately showed him an unexpected answer, one that is nearby and prepared long before Israel arrived at Marah.

Share some of the times when God delivered you out of difficulties when you sought Him in prayer.

Discussion #3: The Reason

God revealed the reason for Marah- it’s both for testing and teaching. Ultimately, He wants to reveal Himself to them in a deeper way- as the Lord who heals.

Describe how the Lord has drawn you closer to Himself as a result of difficulties.

Describe the process of Marah, then Elim in your life.
