Reminding us to continually depend on God, Jonathan shared a chapter from Gary Thomas‘ book Devotions for Sacred Parenting at a recent meeting of the church elders. Based on material by the great preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892), here’s an especially encouraging quote that’s also very appropriate to reflect on for Holy Week…
“…If God could figure out how to be just and yet save sinners, if He could find a way to declare His war against evil while still forgiving sin, surely he can solve our problems! There never was, nor ever will be, a problem so perplexing that God’s guidance can’t see us through it” (pp. 13-14).
Spend some time, too, with Isaiah 43:1… “But now, this is what the Lord says — He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel: ‘Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.'”
