When we go through painful times of struggle or suffering, the one thing we want most from God is answers. We think that if He would just explain why He is allowing us to hurt so badly, things would be better. But the truth is, God’s explanations would only raise more questions. Answers are not what we need. Instead, we should pray for a fresh revelation of God’s greatness, because once we catch a glimpse of His greatness and glory, all of life and its struggles will be put into perspective, and we will be able to see that He is indeed in control and He knows what He is doing, even when we don’t understand.
Pausing to Give Thanks
As a church family, we decided to pause this week to thank God for just a few of the many things He has already done for us. Join us as we hear and follow the example set forth in Scripture of expressing our thankfulness to God, regardless of our current circumstances.
