Learning to Depend More Fully On Him
We all go through seasons of struggle and testing. Regardless of our faith and our faithfulness to the Lord, adversity comes to us all. In God, Help Me Overcome My Circumstances, Michael Youssef draws principles from the book of Judges that help us understand how our difficult seasons of life lead to spiritual growth and maturity. We may fear and dislike the circumstances we are in, but they are temporary and serve a positive purpose. They are meant to:
Unmask our pride in our own abilities
Break down our self-sufficiency
Reinforce our utter dependence on God
Dr. Youssef reminds us that when setbacks come, it’s not time to fear or question why. It’s time to recommit ourselves in faith to God and learn to depend more fully on Him.
Lord, why me? Why now? Why this?
