CBM Ponderosa Camp
We had a great summer camp!
Here is an except from Aaron Miller about can God be Trusted?
“The theme this summer was “Who Can You Trust?” Trust is one thing that usually gets harder as you get older. Experience teaches us that people let you down. This life itself with its death, sickness, disappointments etc., teaches us not to trust in anything. The more I experience this world, the more I may be led to ask, can I really trust in anything or anyone? It sounds pretty dangerous! It is easy to give lip service to trust when everything is going my way, but youth are leaving the church like never before, and the number one reason is that God let them down. These kids were led to believe that giving their lives to God would mean the easiest life possible, one in which they receive everything they pray for. Then someone they love dies, or they don’t make the sports team, or they don’t get the job. God doesn’t promise an easy life. In fact, for the believer, He promises trouble. We want to prepare these campers to trust God when it’s not easy. That is when His power is mostly clearly seen. the truth is that our experiences of disappointment come from imperfect people in an imperfect world. We can, however, trust in a perfect God. It will take a leap of faith and daily smaller leaps of faith. There leaps can be scary, but never disappointing in the end.
What about you? Do you feel God can be trusted? Do you know what He promises in His Word, or do you base what you believe about God on things you’ve heard or things you think God should be? Has the god in your mind disappointed you? I pray that you will seek out in God’s Word what He really does promise, and know that He always does what He says He will do. The true God can be trusted!”
