“This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.”
My friend Randy Alcorn wrote in his book If God Is Good, “Most of us don’t give focused thought to evil and suffering until we experience them. This forces us to formulate perspective on the fly, at a time when our thinking is muddled and we’re exhausted and consumed by pressing issues.”
The point he’s making is that we need to think about this before trials come because when they do, we’ll have to learn how to trust God. Someone once asked me in an interview whether I’ve ever had a moment in my life when I had doubts or questions.
I said that yes, as a matter of fact, I did. I don’t know whether I’d qualify it as doubt, but it was a very hard time. That time, of course, was when my son died. I asked why. The question wasn’t so much why it happened to me, although I have to admit that I asked that.
