90 Days of God’s Goodness by Randy Alcorn is a daily devotional that is subtitled “Daily Reflections That Shine Light on Personal Darkness” and it delivers in a big way.
Pastor Alcorn takes us through many of the various things that darkness tends to bring with it and wisely gives insight to the situation. The light pierces through the darkness as your heart is reminded of the wisdom of God in the crisis that sometimes creeps up in our lives.
In this 90 day devotional, you will no doubt find something that relates to your personal darkness. I hope that as you dwell on God’s goodness while listening to the personal application of each days study, that the light you’ll see will allow the heaviness of the situation you are facing to ease up…even if just a little.
If you feel like you are in a never-ending valley, may I suggest you get this book? If you think that no one on earth understands your pain and darkness, you’ll be encouraged as you read through this devotional and the light is shown on God’s goodness. Your heart will be refreshed and renewed.
The audio book from Christianaudio.com is narrated by Lloyd James and is so easy and comforting to listen to.
I have many, many personal favorite quotes from the book, but I’ll list just a few of them below.
Whose we are, not where we are determines our misery or our joy
Isn’t it MORE remarkable that God would create a world in which no one would suffer more than HE did?
My weakness drives me to a greater dependence on Jesus
It’s one thing to suffer terribly, it’s another to CHOOSE to suffer (Jesus made that choice for US)
What if we see that every agony was giving birth to eternal Joy?
Believing God exists is not the same as TRUSTING the God who exists
Studying about evil and suffering doesn’t equal facing it, but it can go a long way in preparing us for it. Provided we see it in relationship to both the goodness and greatness of God.
Trusting God doesn’t ward off all evil and suffering
