Delivered From Distress: Endurance

Speaker: Jeremy Flanagan


Psalms 34: 17-19 tells us that God rescues those whose spirits are crushed. But what about those times in our lives when it doesn’t feel like God isn't swooping in to the rescue; when He isn’t taking away whatever is hurting us or causing us stress? I read a book a while back by James Macdonald called “When Life Is Hard”. He talks a lot about some of his personal struggles but something he worded so perfectly is what I want us to focus on today.


If you believe God exists to make you happy, God will seem absent. If you believe He exists to make us holy, then you’ll feel His arms around you and His Spirit moving in you.
