Life-Changing Truth Video Series #3 | God is Great (Mark’s Story)

Video Series 3

“I had to take God at his word. I said, ‘Christ, I know I can trust in you. I do not know how we are going to provide for these twins, but I know that you’ve got it covered.’ So we walked forward in that. Two weeks later, I lost my job.”

Recently, I introduced Tim Chester’s “Four G’s” to my blog, mainly as an effort to equip readers who are struggling with chaotic seasons of life. Because I too am walking through a very difficult and chaotic season, I thought I would invite readers to use some of the same things the Lord has given me to find hope and courage to endure through the process (click here to read the original article, “4 Life-Changing Truths About God that Move Us from Chaos to Courage”).

In 2013, The Soma Family of Churches produced a video series of testimonies that give personal real-life stories to echo Chester’s 4 G outline. I have found these videos to be extremely encouraging, as they address everyday issues such as depression & panic, divorce, financial hardship, and perfectionism, from both male and female perspectives.

I’d like to share these videos with you as a resource for your own personal reflection, but also to use as an encouragement for those you know who may be dealing with seasons of unprecedented chaos, and who would benefit from turning to truths about God’s character to find the courage they need to endure.

Mark’s Story | God is Great

“I had to take God at his word. I said, ‘Christ, I know I can trust in you. I do not know how we are going to provide for these twins, but I know that you’ve got it covered.’ So we walked forward in that. Two weeks later, I lost my job.”

Mark prided himself on self-sufficiency, hard-work, and controlling the circumstances around him. But God had plans to confront Mark’s idolatry by teaching him what it means to fully trust in God alone.

“God is great — so we don’t have to be in control.” — one of the Four G’s of life-changing truths about God that has the power to defeat strongholds, overcome temptations, and help us live in the freedom we’ve been given in Christ.
