All the places in which the two words "God" and "mighty" (i.e., the corresponding Hebrew words) occur together are listed in this group of studies. Examine the verses and their contexts. What do they reveal to us about God, people, etc.? Is there anything in this group of verses that you found to be unexpected, or anything that was a new discovery to you? Explain.
How should these verses impact the way you think and live? What do they say (or imply) about your relationship with God?
If God is mighty, do you believe it? How does your life show it? (Genuine faith results in action.)
Are there areas of your life in which you persistently disobey the revealed will of God (that is, things he requires of you, as revealed in the Bible)? Why? Do you claim to be "unable" to change (repent) and obey? Could it be that you are unwilling to rely on this "mighty God," so that he might accomplish in you something that you yourself cannot do?
Suppose circumstances in life don't go "your way." Is it because God is unable to change the circumstances? Do you desperately beg and plead to God (perhaps even trying to bribe him with promises to do something in exchange), trying to somehow cajole him into "meeting your needs" (needs which he is supposedly not meeting)? Do you doubt his power? Do you disbelieve the promise he makes to all those who belong to him?
We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. For whom he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers [which would include all of us]. (Romans 8:28-29)
God will supply our real needs - those that accomplish his purposes in us; he will not necessarily supply our wants. It is our duty and privilege to trust him and to obey him, knowing that he will do what's best. He has the power to do so!
...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
