The answer to yesterday’s question:
A friend is a new Christian. She is trying to learn to trust God. A severe physical issue has come up in her life. She wrote me that she is frustrated because she was testing God with this. She implied that she felt that God let her down. How would you respond?
Answer: The Bible says not to test God. It’s not a fair test anyway. A test seeks to find truth. Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation” but He promises to be with us through it. So, look not at circumstances, but rather at His Spirit being there in the midst. Seek Him and find hope and joy in the midst. Then you will know He cares. Don’t look at circumstances – that’s Satan. It’s about faith, not feelings. God is still good and will use this and every situation for your good as you seek Him.
