Bible Discussion

  1. What are some things we learn about angels from these passages?
  2. When the servant first looked outside, all he could see was the city was surrounded by an opposing army. How do you suppose he felt?
  3. When the servant looked a second time he saw the unseen army of God with even more horses and chariots of fire holding back the opposing army. How do you suppose he felt on his second look?

Life Application

  1. Do you think it is possible for God to be at work in the world in ways that we don’t see? Why or why not.
  2. The purpose and promise of angels in the unseen world of God is to remind us we are not alone, redirect our fear to faith, and reveal God’s purposes. What attribute of the unseen world do you find the most encouraging?
  3. God works in ways that we often don’t see and when we go through difficult circumstances it can be even more difficult to see God at work. What circumstances are difficult for you to see God at work in?

Challenge

Challenge your group to assume for the next week that God IS at work in ways we do not see. Close your small group by praying the bold prayer of Elisha “Open my eyes, Lord, so that I may see.” Challenge everyone in your small group to pray this bold prayer daily.
