by Megan Van Vuren from No Greater Joy – The Lord’s Mercies Never Fail
Editor’s note: While this flogging a book written by not by Michael and Debi but by one of their ministry people Erin Harrison it seems from the cover and this paragraph that it’s merely another doubling down on the ‘Don’t ever have negative emotions’ thing tha NGJ does so well. We’ve all seen how well not being allowed to feel your own real emotions works out. Curious that they chose to promote this on the 14th anniversary of 9/11. Are they implying that you can have joy and peace during the one of the most massive tragedies in America by controlling your thoughts? Seems a bit tacky if that’s the implication.
Why do some people have sadness accompanied with madness, while others with just as much sorrow are filled with thanksgiving and joy? The answer is abundantly obvious. Most people never taste of the LORD’s daily mercies because they do not daily visit the throne of mercy to find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16). God is a worldwide distributor of grace and mercy, but he doesn’t send you a dose unless you order it. He loves a repeat customer who orders daily.
