John Piper

“God builds faith by knocking the props out from under our lives. Picture your life or your heart as propped up in its happiness, peace and comfort and contentment. There are a hundred props and they’re not evil. God has given you these good things. He wants these things to be enjoyed. But God knows when your hearts need help not to trust in them for our contentment. So he can just knock these out… *sound effects*

(LOL the sound effect… John Piper is a cool, quirky guy)

We have an answer as Christians when all the props, when all around my soul gives way He then is all my hope…This is his sanctifying strategy.”
