Today on Perry and Shawna Mornings God promises to keep us safe. But it doesn’t mean that will never experience something really, really hard. Perry shares about his dark night of the soul when he felt cut off from God; felt he was no longer in His family. He asked his dad, Why is God allowing Satan to win in my life? Find out how Perry moved from feeling cut off to now knowing he’s more secure and safe in God than ever. We get a big assist on this one from author, bible teacher and founding pastor of Redeemer Church in Manhattan, Tim Keller.
Then, we live in a crazy, busy world. There’s so much noise. And even when our schedule isn’t demanding, we can do things like catching up with our social media in the grocery store line. All this noise can create anxiety. So we need to take time to be still. To enjoy the peace that comes in remembering that God is God and we are not. Check out the Lectio 365 app for help with this!
And finally, perhaps like Perry when you go through really fiery hardships, you can be tempted to think that you’re being punished for your sin, or at the very least, maybe there’s something more you need to do to deal with your confessed sin. That’s a lie from the enemy and if we believe it, it will cripple us and rob us of the peace God has for us. Another big assist from Tim Keller on this one.
