I’ve had many interesting conversations this year, but there seemed to be one topic in particular that would consistently come up. With each person I spoke with or in each class I attended this conversation would be wrapped in a different set of circumstances, but the principle always remained the same.
As Christians doing our very best to walk “in-step” with God, it seems we are constantly struggling to discern the meaning behind God’s restraint in our lives.
He seems to withhold direction, provision, and even communication, which leaves us scratching our heads wondering what it all means. It could even be that there are things you know deep down that God doesn’t want for you, and although you decide not to do them, in the moment you just feel like you’re being cheated in life.
