Our problems? No problem!

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.'”
