Your God Is Too Safe

Author:  Mark Buchanan

Is my God safe?  No, but He is good!  The author did an excellent job of putting into writing many of the thoughts that I have, but could have never formed into words.  How easy it is to want a God who is available for my needs, but otherwise stays out of my way.  Holy habits, which must be trained before they become habits, help us learn to have God at the center of our lives and not only there for emergencies.

Prayer is one of those holy habits and prayer often equals waiting.  The chapter on prayer especially helped me to realize how prayer honors God even if I am not seeing an immediate result.
