Treasure Comfort Or Safety Above God Himself?

June 24, 2015

“We cannot count on God to protect us from suffering of any kind or measure. The worst evil can happen to the best Christian. but we can count on God to enable us to draw near to Him whatever happens and, eventually, to experience deep joy when we do.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, The Pressure’s Off, Page 195

Questions for Reflection:
•In what areas of your life are you more focused on relief of pain or pressure than you are on drawing near to God?
•In which relationships are you more focused on protecting yourself than you are on giving God the joy of having you reveal Him to another?
•Take a few minutes to ask God to forgive you for the ways you’ve treasured comfort or safety above God Himself.
