From the ever reliable Oswald Chambers:
God does not keep His child immune from trouble; He promises, "I will be with him in trouble . . ." ( Psalm 91:15 ). It doesn’t matter how real or intense the adversities may be; nothing can ever separate him from his relationship to God. "In all these things we are more than conquerors . . ." ( Romans 8:37 ). Paul was not referring here to imaginary things, but to things that are dangerously real. And he said we are "super-victors" in the midst of them, not because of our own ingenuity, nor because of our courage, but because none of them affects our essential relationship with God in Jesus Christ. I feel sorry for the Christian who doesn’t have something in the circumstances of his life that he wishes were not there.
"Nothing affects our essential...." What great words. GBC, as wonderful as it will be, is but one small thing in a vast ocean of God's work and His kingdom. As we struggle with it, and think about it, and work towards it -- we need to keep that in mind. Pray for perspective for all involved today.
