His Story - Week 17
Doubt happens when the superficialities of your faith meet the realities of the world.Add Notes
Surely God is good to Israel, to those who are pure in heart. But as for me, I came so close to the edge of the cliff. My feet were slipping, and I was almost gone. For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of their wickedness.Add Notes

They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong. They are free from common human burdens… Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.Add Notes
They scoff, and speak with malice; with arrogance they threaten oppression. Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth… “Does God even realize what is going on?” they ask. This is what the wicked are like— always free of care, they go on amassing wealth.Add Notes

Then one day I went into God’s sanctuary to meditate and thought about the future of these evil men. What a slippery path they are on—suddenly God will send them sliding over the edge of the cliff and down to their destruction: an instant end to all their happiness, an eternity of terror. Their present life is only a dream! They will awaken to the truth as one awakens from a dream of things that never really were!Add Notes

According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building upon it. Let each one take care how he builds upon it… Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done.Add Notes
Suffering drives you — like a hammer on a nail — deeper into God’s love.Add Notes
