Where do you go when.......

「Big God」という本があります。ブリット・メリックという牧師の書いた本です。



「 僕はどうだろう?本当に追い込まれるまで、神のもとにはなかなかいかないじゃないか!!」と

One of the books I have been reading is called
"Big God" by Britt Merrick, pastor of Reality Carpinteria
Its subtitle is "what happens when we trust Him", so he is telling us what it is like to truly trust Jesus. 
 This passage spoke to me a lot, so I wanted to share this with you guys.
He is writing about how he and his family has been going through ( still now ) difficult time for his daughter' cancer treat ment.
 here he says

"Our mind took a certain rout to Jesus when we first heard the news( that his daughter has stage 3 cancer). We went through the Word of God. Immediately our hearts and our minds were filled with truth we had learned from the Bible, and an understanding of the character of God. Immediately our hearts and our minds were filled with the story of God and how He has proven Himself faithful with His people over and over again, since the beginning of time. Immediately our hearts and minds were filled with the Bible's stories of people just like you and me who faced problems, and placed their little bit of faith in a big God."
I thought "When do I go to God, the Word of God?? Is it when only I face difficult and there is no way to go but to God?"
Pastor Britt was comforted by the Word of God, I think because he had been learning to trust God daily. That is why he was able to go to the Word of God.
I was really convicted by the Spirit.

I think we are daily challenged whether we trust Him or not.
We are always in difficult time; we are in spiritual warfare!!
So, when we face real difficult time like Pastor Britt, how we react is the mere evidence how we are walking daily.

So we, I should be learning to trust Him always. We don't have to wait for the big trail to come.
It is already here!!!
