You can trust God
Can You Trust God?
A couple of years ago, a large malignant tumor was found in my wife's abdominal cavity. She went through radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and all of the pain, nausea, and months of anxious waiting that go along with this disease. Watching her suffer cut me to the heart as well. After many months, the Lord ended her struggle through death.
Our experience is nothing extraordinary these days. In fact, in the past few years I have had seven friends with cancer listed on my "urgent" prayer page.
But cancer or other physical ailments are not the only source of anxiety. Over lunch a few weeks ago a businessman friend confided that his company is perilously close to bankruptcy; another experiences heartache over a spiritually rebellious teenager. On a larger scale, we read in our daily newspapers of war,
IT'S HARD TO TRUST GOD WHEN YOUR LIFE IS FULL OF PAIN.
Nothing shakes our confidence in God like times of adversity, yet those are the very times when we most need to trust Him.
Jerry Bridges has personally experienced the darkness, distress, and despair that flood the soul when it seems God doesn't care.
In this warm and personal booklet Bridges reveals the three essential truths about God that kept him through those experiences and convinced him God could be trusted.
"It isn't always easy to trust God. But when we understand why He can be trusted it helps us cling to Him, despite the adversity that threatens to overwhelm us."
