When God doesn’t make sense

Daily Thought

Your Word for 21 June 2024

Isaiah 12:2a
‘Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.’

THE BETRAYAL BARRIER – this is a very interesting concept.  Dr. James Dobson coined this phrase.  He said that there comes a time in everyone’s life when they face a situation that does not make sense. In this time they begin to feel that even God has deserted them. A wall that we face when we get to a point where we are convinced that even God has deserted us.
This can be a crushing time for individuals.  His advice is that we take God at His word and that we do not let go of what God has said and keep on believing Him.  God has said that He will never leave us nor forsake us and no matter what we may be feeling or experiencing we need to take God at His word and hold on.
