Don’t Grow Weary

When the disciples urged Jesus to eat something, he said, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about. My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work” (John 4:32-34).

  • If God is still good, why can’t I feel it?

As a Christian, you know God is still good. But what can you do when the goodness of God begins to feel like a distant memory instead of a present reality?

A. W. Tozer said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”
