It’s easy to forget about God when things are going well and blame Him when life takes a downturn. Ultimately, though our feelings may change, God does not. One of the great challenges of the Christian life is coming to the point of understanding that whatever our circumstances, God is still God and God is good. We choose to follow Him whether we walk through the fire or are reduced to ashes, and despite what those around us may decide to do.
Questions for further thought:
1. Have you ever been tempted to walk away from God? What kept you on track – or brought you back?
2. What spiritual disciplines are you practicing to strengthen your connection to and faith in God?
Challenge: In what area of your life are you struggling to understand what God is up to? Bring that to Him. Ask someone else you trust to pray with you. If you’re free of struggle at the moment, be sure to praise Him!
