How Do We Believe God in Times of Suffering?
Notes from the Video:
No question has been comprehended until it has been fully posed and its assumptions fully understood.
With the question of suffering, it must be evaluated, and God must remain in the paradigm.
What has brought evil and suffering into this world is our departure from God.
When belief in God becomes difficult, the tendency is to turn away from him. But, in heaven’s name to what?
-G. K. Chesterton
The grace of God that sustains you will be the testimony that will carry you to the end of the day.
God works on a timetable. He didn’t come for Lazarus when they wanted him to come for Lazarus.
When looking to be mentored and discipled, look to somebody who has suffered much and whose faith in God has remained unshaken.
Have you ever felt tempted to turn away from God during a difficult time?
If so, how did you endure such a season?
Do you have mentors that you look up to that you can reach out to in times of trouble?
