It is difficult to come to terms with things in this country at times. We listened today to a James McDonald sermon that talked about four types of confusion that we can all suffer from at times. Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Confusion.
When we are unable to connect the things around us, with who we know God to be, that is Spiritual confusion. I think we are suffering a bit of that these last few days.
Some of the things that happen don't make sense to us.
If you allow yourself to stay in confusion for too long, it will ultimately cause you to quit. That is why it is important to say grounded in God's word and important that we heard this Dr. McDonald sermon today. Our God is not a God of confusion.
The main points that stuck out for us were these:
- God always has a plan
- God's timing is not our timing, but it is always perfect
- God promises us that no matter what is happening, good or bad, our fault or not our fault, that His sovereignty will extend into the situation
- Our responsibility is to bring what we have and allow Him to fill in the empty places
