Beyond An Easy-To-Maintain Faith

August 2, 2018

“Only when life hauls us beyond an easy-to-maintain faith that God is good will we discover a Spirit-granted faith that keeps us steady during life’s earthquakes.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, When God’s Ways Make No Sense, Chapter 8, “Hands-Off but Present (And Still in Control)?” pg 107

Questions for Reflection:
• What life experiences have propelled you “beyond an easy-to-maintain faith that God is good”?
• How did the way you relate to God change as a result?
• What factors – Scripture, the experience itself, the impact of others, a clearer view of your own heart, etc – played the most significant role in those changes?
• Do you think those changes in the nature of your faith are good or are you struggling to believe that an anchoring, Spirit-produced faith can result from your situation?
• Take some time today to ponder Romans 15:13 and to invite the Holy Spirit to deepen His hope in your heart.
