Unshakeable: Truths for Uncertain Times
Part 1: Pray Until the Peace Comes 

Uncertainty is nothing new. But God’s faithfulness isn’t either.

On January 8 & 15, 2017, you’re invited to discover — or rediscover — Unshakeable: Truths for Uncertain Times

Introduction

The truth is, God is at work even in uncertain times. It is good to know that he is working, but what should we be doing? How should we live in the midst of uncertainty? How can we keep from being overwhelmed by the fears and insecurities that often go hand in hand with uncertainty? God has a plan, and his plan is to replace our anxieties with peace.

Share about a time when uncertainty created increased interest in spiritual things for you or a friend.
Read Philippians 4:4-7. Why are Paul’s circumstances (in jail awaiting trial) crucial to the credibility 
of this passage?
Read Philippians 4:4. What are some things that you are more likely to rejoice in other than “in the 
Lord”?
Why, in the midst of this passage on uncertainty, does Paul exhort us to “let our gentleness be evident to all”?
Paul’s use of the word “present” in verse six means “to reveal.” Think about your recent prayers. 
What underlying, deeper needs are revealed by your prayer requests?
Complete the following sentences: Heavenly Father, I need You to __________. If You don’t, I’m afraid 
that __________.

Moving Forward

In the middle of our uncertainty, God offers us peace—a peace that replaces anxiety, fear, and insecurity. All you have to do is give up your illusion of control and embrace the reality of your dependence upon God. You do this by going to God in prayer with your deepest needs, hopes, and fears.

Changing Your Mind

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
