Psalm 77: Suspicion

Posted by on Jul 17, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

It’s disheartening how easily I fall into suspicion about God’s heart toward me. I don’t so much question His character as much as His capacity to stick with me through the rough patches.

I wish it weren’t so, but a turn for the worst in my circumstances can turn my heart toward doubt. I’ll wonder, was this the last straw? Is He finally fed up with me? Have I fallen off His radar because I’m just too hard to manage? Has He moved on to someone more promising? Someone with real potential?

In those moments, I’m getting better at “taking thoughts captive”; turning them from giving up to going forward.

And nothing in this world relieves my distress about the present (or future for that matter) like rehearsing the past faithfulness of God.

It’s all in the Good Book (and in my own journey of faith) … He created … He called … He comforted … He corrected … He covered … He converted … He cherished … He so loved me and the rest of this broken, defiant world that He gave His beloved Son to be a sinless substitute for guilty rebels (John 3:16-18). It’s staggering really!

Though a lot about this life is confounding, I never need wonder about God’s affection toward me. He’s made an irrefutable statement through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

His love truly is greater than I can even comprehend.
