Are you meeting regularly with a discussion group? If you meet just once a week, you can find all of this week’s discussion questions in one place right here.

Question: Share a story of surprise encouragement – who encouraged you, and when?  How did it help?

Question: Why do you think God needed to provide so much encouragement now that they were finally on the threshold of all he’d promised?

And Joshua commanded the officers of the people, “Pass through the midst of the camp and command the people, ‘Prepare your provisions, for within three days you are to pass over this Jordan to go in to take possession of the land that the LORD your God is giving you to possess.’” (Joshua 1:1-11 ESV)

Question: Which of God’s words to Joshua stand out the most to you, and why?

Challenge: Encourage someone this week, and share with them about how you’ve seen God’s presence make a difference and encourage you in your life.
