That is why I listen to men like Sam Storms, John Piper, Charles Spurgeon and the likes. They paint a picture of God being great, holy, and righteousness. I can serve this great God who is so much bigger than me.
I want to share a link from Sam Storms. His message titled, "Earthquakes, Tsunamis, and the mystery of suffering and sovereignty of God", has spoken to my heart and brought me back to reality of who this God is of whom I serve. Dr. Storms teaches out of the book of Job. Listed are some thoughts from his podcast.
"Is God worthy of our worship and devotion even when He remains silent in our suffering?"
"Would we trust/commit our lives to Him even if there were no benefits?"
Great questions and the purpose of his message is to prepare our hearts for the time of tragedy. We live in a fallen world. Pain tragedy and heartache will come. But how will you respond to this God when your world is turned upside down? I pray his message encourages your heart as it has mine.
