How much do we trust God? We say we trust in Him, but how much trust do we really have when adversity comes? Maybe a better question would be, do we trust Him more than we trust in ourselves to provide the things we want when we want them? That leads to a more uncomfortable question: if God doesn’t provide in the way we expect, is He still the God we want to follow?

Defiance, or Definition?

The Fiery Furnace, Gustave Doré.

Where do we draw the line between obedience and defiance to authority? Maybe that is not the right question. Maybe it’s more a matter of who – and whose – we understand ourselves to be.
