Ps 46; 95; Lk 12:22-31. Dan Kroon. In the struggles of life (our temptation to sin, our negative emotions, our desire to be 'better'), what do we most need? Quick fixes? Positive thinking? A verse of the day? No. What we most need is to know who our God is. We need to know his character and nature; his power and love; his worth and perfection. We need to know all these things and how they help us. On Sunday morning we are starting a new series called, "Because God Is…" We will focus on the qualities of his greatness, glory, goodness and grace, considering how these things free us in our struggles. We begin this week with his greatness: "Because God is great, we don’t have to be in control." It’s a liberating reminder for every struggle.
