Only Then…

August 23, 2018

“Only as immature faith yields to trust in God’s unthwarted sovereignty will we welcome suffering and value the deeper good of knowing God through it. Only then can we rest in hope and enjoy His sovereign love.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, When God’s Ways Make No Sense, Chapter 16, “What Does It Mean to Say God is Sovereign?” pg 205

Questions for Reflection:
• In what ways does immature faith masquerade as confidence in God?
• How does a genuine confidence in God that includes valuing what He accomplishes amid suffering differ from quietly hopeless resignation or martyred posturing?
• What is God giving you the opportunity to trust Him with today?
• Is your trust marked by both honest conversation with Him and a willingness to see and respond with His heart to the needs of those around you?
• How does the opportunity to draw near to and reveal God in every situation in life provide rest amid the circumstances that most rock your world?
