A doctrine idea by John Piper:
of a thinking faculty that glorifies God by right thinking about him
of an emotional faculty that glorifies God by feeling right about him
In the Midst of Trials
Watching God’s Strength in Trials we listened to a man born without arms and how he accepted his God given body. He tells us to embrace God’s plan whatever that may be. It’s God strength that we need, and God’s plan for us is to grow as a person and grow closer to Him. Trials are meant to draw us closer to God and find our strength in Him.
Matt Chandler in Trials Build Deeper Trust in God knows first-hand through his brain tumor and cancer treatments of trusting God fully. Trust is a firm belief or faith in another. Trusting God for what’s to come. During Sunday’s sermon we heard that we need to have faith in our trials. To put your full weight, full trust in God.
As we go through our trials, draw close to God, find your strength in Him. Don’t lose your Joy in who your God is. As James 1: 2 Testing of Your Faith says “Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness”. We count it joy because we are Easter People!
