day no. 13,210: safety is a Person not a place‏

"The truth is that when it comes to suffering, if we do not go to our graves in confusion we will not go to our graves trusting because explanations are a substitute for trust." ~ Tullian Tchividjian

Do you seek God through your suffering or do you seek to understand the reason for your suffering from God?

Explanations are often idols.

Suffering drives you to what you treasure most.

Do you retreat to God when it gets rough or do you treat Him harshly as you demand explanations from Him?

Psalm 4:8
I will both lie down and sleep in peace,
for You alone, Lord, make me live in safety.
