“Why would we ever doubt his goodness?” when I look at the moments of my greatest weakness, I think I am doing this very thing. I think when my eyes are fixated on something I desire, that I know is wrong, hurtful and dangerous I am really just questioning the goodness of God. I stop taking my eyes off the rest of the garden he has provided, all the good things he HAS given me and turn to the thing he says to avoid (for my own good).
I think asking myself this question is something that will really help during times of weakness. It takes obedience away from simply conforming to a set of rules for rules sake and makes obedience a reaction to a loving father I believe wants to take care of me and give me life.
