Read 1 Samuel 7
1. In v3 we learn that the Israelites rid themselves of foreign gods. What modern idols distance us from God? What prevents us from getting rid of them?
2. In what circumstances should we fast today and for what purpose? ( Look at Matt 4 v 2 , Acts 13 v 1-3 and 1 Cor 7 v 5)
3. Describe some personal experience of tribulation that brought or drove you to seek God.
