3. Describe how it might have been possible for Israel to think God was not in control of their circumstances? Do you think they understood that God was in control? Why or why not? Do you ever struggle to believe that God is in control of your circumstances? Explain.

6. Take some time and explain how God has used a bad situation in your life for good (cf. Romans 8:27-30). Do you believe God still has a plan for His people to suffer? Do you struggle with accepting difficulties that come by way of God’s hand (Job 2:9-10)? Explain.

7. God allows us to experience adversity at times. Do you believe that? In what way has God allowed adversity in your life: in response to your disobedience, for testing your faith, helping you spiritually mature, and promoting your dependency on Him?
