We cannot love God in a vacuum.
We can trust God because we know that no matter what we face, God is able to make it work for our good. He may not have caused it, but He has such amazing redemptive power beyond what we can comprehend.
On the surface, it may have appeared that this man was beyond help. That he was beyond hope. He was as good as dead. But, on the other side of the country was a Man named Jesus. Jesus didn’t have to go to see this man, yet He made it His mission to go to him. The man couldn’t come to Jesus, so Jesus went to him.
