Seeking Him Podcast

Misreading God's Signals

Man: We tend to look at the circumstances of life in terms of what they may do to our hopes and conveniences. When a problem threatens, we rush to God, not to seek His perspective, but to ask Him to deflect the trouble.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: Arthur Matthews was serving as a missionary in China when the Communists took control. He spent years under house arrest with his wife and daughter, and his writings show what it’s like to embrace the plan and purposes of God in suffering.

Man: An escapist generation reads security, prosperity, and physical well-being as evidences of God’s blessing. When He puts suffering and affliction into our hands, we misread His signals and misinterpret His intentions.

Nancy: The next time you face a trial, don’t resent the cross, or resist it or run from it. Instead, embrace it and trust the heart of the One who died for you.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
