We will all struggle at times with doubts about our relationship with God. We live in a fallen and broken world where sin and evil are very real. Our own sin and struggles can affect the way we think about God and our relationship with him. While this lesson is not intended to deal with all the aspects of suffering as a Christian, this Footing does help us grasp that God's intentions and power to hold you do not change. Our security and growing assurance of our relationship with God is based on His character and not on our experience and emotions which can waver at times. The one who has trusted, the one who is Justified and Adopted, will persevere!
