J.D. Greear, Talking about God Using ‘the Wilderness’

The Sunday feature of the Worldly Saints blog is all about quotes. No commentary from me, no reflection, etc. Just a provocative or informative quote from a saint in church history.

Greear JD“Just because God feels absent doesn’t mean that he actually is. Just because you can’t track his footprints doesn’t mean he’s not walking beside you. In Scripture we see that God often does his best work in our darkest hours. … God uses the wilderness. The pasture is his laboratory. When he puts you into a white space, don’t assume he’s forgotten you. In the pasture, he’s commencing some of his best work. Don’t waste your white space”
