When we are invited into the “fellowship of His sufferings” and the “gospel of weakness” is preached to our soul and makes us its convert, and, like Job, we are left with hanging hands, questioning heart and smitten soul…we need to be able to face the most urgent questions of our lifetime.

IS GOD IN CONTROL?

and

CAN I TRUST HIM TO BRING ME THROUGH THIS INTO A BETTER PLACE?

The Psalmist said,

“it is GOOD for me that I was afflicted, that I might learn to trust Your ways.”
Psa 119:71

He preceded that with this stunning piece of insight:

“YOU ARE GOOD, and You do good…”
Psa 119:68

(Notice the order; we want to reverse those clauses)

Allow me to share some insights God showed me recently from Romans 8:18-39 – one of Paul’s strongest sermons ever.

Go ahead and read it. I’ll wait…

  1. Scott,
    My dear brother, you have GREATLY encouraged me tonight with these words. This past week I lost my brother to cancer and liver failure. This was brought on by a life lived very much like Graham’s. My brother Wayne destroyed his body with drugs and alcohol for 30 years. He was diagnosed 3 weeks ago and passed on Sunday. I spoke to him about 2 weeks before he died and he assured me that he had accepted Christ and was going to heaven. At his funeral, I told the story of my brothers conversion and how I had hope to see him again. Your words have been sent from the LORD himself and were intended for me. Because even though I believed my brother, the enemy wanted to produce doubt in me about my brother’s salvation. Thank you for being willing to use the painful event of Graham’s passing to the glory of Jesus Christ! I love you my brother!

    1. Alan, first, thank you for testifying to the truth of this blog and encouraging me that my posts can sometimes even hit the mark. Your words are a fresh breeze upon my soul, much as Paul experienced with his Onesiphorus. Second, I hurt for and with you brother. I know you drew many times on the strength of Christ in your handling of your brother while he lived, and now again as he is departed. I’m so blessed your heart found confirmation. I love you friend. You’ll never know how many times God’s used you to bring joy to my heart.
