1. When you say someone is insecure, what do you mean? Describe what being insecure looks like to you.
Read Joshua 2:2-9, 15, 16, 22-24.
2. Who demonstrated security and who demonstrated insecurity in these Scripture verses? Why?
3. Rahab said, “I know that the Lord has given this land to you and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you.” Why do you think Rahab was so confident that the Lord was with the spies?
4. When facing a challenging situation, how can you be secure and know “the Lord is in it”?
5. With the Lord’s help, what insecurity or false sense of security would you like to overcome?
6. Spend time praising God for the security he has provided in your life. To help you think of things to praise him for, have one person say each letter of the alphabet. Pause briefly between each letter and during the pause, have group members offer praises that start with that letter. For example: “A” is for acceptance, “B” is for blessings, and so on.
7. After you have gone through the alphabet, have someone conclude with a closing prayer of praise for the Lord’s security.
