RCCG HOUSE FELLOWSHIP LEADER’S MANUAL 31 JANUARY 2021
TOPIC: WHEN A MAN’S WAYS PLEASE THE LORD
PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask the members if they have started hearing from God.
MEMORY VERSE: “When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.” – Proverbs 16:7
BIBLE TEXT: 1 Kings 5:1-5
LESSON INTRODUCTION: “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will.” – Proverbs 21:1.
Revisiting the memory verse; do you know all your enemies? Or can you explain when and how they afflict or attack their victims? Or can you fight all your enemies?
Why don’t you submit to God totally and see what He will do to your enemies. God is omni-potent (all powerful) and He can touch your enemies’ heart one by one so that they will be at peace with you.
TEXT REVIEW: 1 Kings 5:1-5
i. God will still all storms when He is pleased.
ii. God commits His work to those He is pleased with.
