Getting You To The Party

June 15, 2016

“I wrote Job to reveal who I AM, not who you imagine Me to be. I permit suffering but never more, always less, than I experience. Gaze on Calvary. Look at My Son. We are committed to your well-being, to your eternal joy, to getting you to the party. We suffered then in ways you will never experience, and We suffer with you now until the party begins, until the banquet is ready.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 87

Questions for Reflection:
• In whatever kind of suffering you may be currently experiencing, have you considered where God is in the midst of it and how your suffering impacts His heart?
• Is pain shaping your view of God right now or is your view of your pain being shaped by the cross?
• In the midst of your present struggle, ask the Holy Spirit to remove false images that you have of God and to deepen and clarify your vision of His heart.
