You can trust God's what and when and where.

Have you ever had an idea in your mind about what God is supposed to do in your life? Perhaps along your journey, you’ve experienced pain, confusion, or detours that don’t align with the idea you had. Perhaps these detours make you wonder if God cares about your life and your circumstances. As the disciples experience in John chapter 7, even when your life doesn’t go as planned, you can trust God’s what & when & where. Seemingly, God’s worst idea—sacrificing his one and only perfect son—turned out to be the best thing to happen to our broken world.

Other texts in this message: John 3:16; Psalm 31
