7 Posts About Trusting God in Every Season of Life

Trusting God means trusting his work in life and the lives of others within our homes, cities, countries and our world - even when bad things happen.

Trusting God is a concept that runs the gamut from trusting his work in your life to the work in the lives of others. That means in our homes, our cities, our countries and our world. It means trusting God to bring non-believers to know him – and on his time. And even with that trust, bad things still happen in our lives.

Is Faith Inherently Irrational? – (Greg Boyd at ReKnew): Similar to trusting man-made creations, we put our faith in our fellow man. Yet, our culture is reluctant to put faith in God. Boyd presents an argument for grounding your faith in reason and evidence.

What Does Trusting Go Look Like?

I’m trusting Jesus, so why am I suffering?  – (by John S. Dickerson at Ron Edmondson): Dickerson’s guest post is an excerpt from I Am Strong: Finding God’s Peace and Strength in Life’s Darkest Moments to encourage the faith hurting Christians from first-hand experience.

Trusting in God Who Raises the Dead – (Denny Burk): Using 2 Corinthians 1:8-10 as a basis for a message on suffering, Burk called for praying of a friend who was battling cancer. That friend took his final earthly breaths a short while later. In the sermon titled, “With Paul in the School of Suffering,” he reminds us that our God is one that raises the dead.

The Difference Between Believing the Gospels and Trusting the Gospel – (J Warner Wallace at Christian Apologetics Alliance): How do you go from “belief that” to “belief in” with conviction? Wallace shares his story. One that shows “the role evidence can play in moving someone from intellectual assent to volitional submission.”
