Today's Amazing Winter Read - "Finding God"
Author: Jeuel Pavitt Date Posted:31 August 2021
We live in a world which is so fast paced and people today are caught up with finding solutions to their problems themselves thinking that mankind has all the answers. The truth is in order to solve the problems that face mankind today, first we need to find God then allow him to solve our problems.
Description: In today's psychological culture, we have become a people more concerned with solving our problems than finding God. Suffer low self–esteem? Get counseling. Unfulfilled in life? Join a recovery group. But solving problems is not the point, argues Dr. Larry Crabb. In fact, whenever we place a higher priority on solving our problems than on pursuing God, we are being immoral!
Dr. Crabb demonstrates that our deepest problem and worst sin is doubting God. When we doubt God's goodness, when we think that god cannot be trusted with the things that matter most, we will quietly, but with tight–lipped resolve, take over responsibility for our own well-being--with disastrous results.
In his most compelling book since Inside Out, Dr. Crabb upsets the cozy Christianity of the modern believer. He reveals anew God's top priority: not our comfort and gratification, but His glory.
