Presentation

Why is it easier to obey God than to trust him?

We see the merits of divine requirements, even if we refuse to comply with them or find it difficult to put them into practice. Its laws are reasonable for the believer.

In contrast, our circumstances often defy explanation. In times of trial, we are not long in doubting the love and goodness of God, as well as his ability to control events. Of course, we don't put it that way, but our attitudes betray a truth that would frighten us if we thought about it.

The ordeal is tough. Understanding it is even more difficult. Why does God allow this? Where is the meaning? Yes, it's hard to trust him.

To achieve this, writes the author, one must no longer look with the eye of the senses but with that of faith. We need to see who God is, what he does, and how he decided to achieve his goal.

Reading these pages will lead the reader to see that the circumstances of his life all rest in the hands of a God whose sovereignty is absolutely total and universal. Her wisdom, meanwhile, is endless and her love is truly perfect.

God seeks his own glory and that of his Son, as well as the good of his children. As a result, nothing will hinder his designs.

L
La Bible Parle Saguenay
Même dans mes épreuves

Personne n’aime être dans l’épreuve; mais personne n’est à l’abri de l’épreuve. L’adversité est de tout temps le plus grave problème des croyants, faire confiance à Dieu et l’accepter comme une nécessité de la vie chrétienne.

Nous voyons la souffrance comme quelque chose d’inutile, un mal à éviter. Toute épreuve est pénible à vivre, elle frappe par surprise, cela dépasse notre intelligence et semble n’avoir aucun sens, il n’existe pas de réponses toutes faites dans certaines circonstances ; nous ne voyons pas toujours clairement l’éternelle gloire de Dieu, sa sagesse et son amour pour nous mais comprendre comment Dieu pense et comment il exerce sa volonté renforce notre foi.

Jerry Bridges présente dans son livre un regard biblique sur la réalité de la souveraineté et de sa portée sur les épreuves que nous rencontrons.
