After the fall of Adam and Eve, the human race find themselves in a huge mess dealing with the massive implications that come along with that particular disobedience. When Adam and Eve were brought into this world, they were sinless before God, which means that they were perfect in every way. In fact, they had to be this way because their lives came from God who is all perfect by nature, which also means that everything He makes has to reflect who He really is as a perfect and holy God.
If there’s one of the most comforting chapters out of the Word of God that we can turn to in the midst of life’s trials, it would be Psalms 46. To a large degree, bad circumstances in this life are unavoidable. In many cases, you don’t have to invite one upon your life in order for it to come. As God’s children, He hasn’t promised us that He’ll always spare us from every problem that will come our way.
Living for God implies having an intimate relationship with Him through Christ. In fact, that’s the foremost reason that we’re made for unlike other creations. Having said that, trust is the essence of relationship. The point is that there cannot be any relationship without at least some level of trust. But, the matter gets really complicated with respect to our relationship with God because He’s asking us to trust Him in such a manner that compels us to rise above our own human understanding, conception, weaknesses, reasoning, emotions, and feelings. In other words, the very things that are counterproductive to faith.
