Notes & Transcripts


Jesus had been mocked , beaten, abused, naked
trust - pitho - have full confidence, inward cetainty
Easy to trust in the light
Trust in the Dark
Darkness covered the land
Never complained until God withdrew
So many tragedies in our lives
Limited Vision
1 cor - see dimly
1 Corinthians 13:12 ESV
For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
Isaiah 55:8–9 ESV
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Limited Vision
Nowhere - to - now here
3 things - God is good, God is for me, God is with me
God is Good
Project our circumstances on God’s character
Mark 10:18 ESV
And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.
God is for Me
Nothing bigger
Romans 8:31–33 ESV
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.
God is with Me
it is a promise
Hebrews 13:5 ESV
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Matter of Trust
Proverbs 3:5–6 ESV
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Matter of Trust
acknowledge - to know
The better I know - less I ask why - more I ask what
How do we know-
2 Corinthians 5:21 ESV
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
