If we are to experience peace in our souls in times of adversity,
we must come to the place where we truly believe
that God’s ways are simply beyond us and
stop asking Him “why” or even trying to determine it ourselves.
This may seem like an intellectual “cop out,”
a refusal to deal with the really tough issues of life.
In fact, it is just the opposite.
It is a surrender to the truth about God and
our circumstances as it is revealed to us by
God Himself in His inspired Word.
~Trusting God, Jerry Bridges
