When our child dies, many of us feel like we have been led into a dark pit and abandoned by God. We don’t understand why God did not stop the death of our child, especially when we were doing everything right on our end to be a “good” Christian.
In Matthew 4, we read how right after God spoke with an audible voice from heaven how pleased He was with His Son, Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit into a wilderness where Satan attacked Him at a very weak and vulnerable time.
In this episode, Laura begins looking through the eyes of a pareavor at what Jesus went through during that time, and how it can help us in our “wilderness” experience.
