Coming to truly know God, trust him and act on that knowledge is hugely important as Christians. God is a boundless source of good in all things. He is a loving Father who cares for his children.
Sometimes we as his children turn our backs on God and God allows it for a time. Always for our good though because at the best time he shakes our word so that we can see more clearly again the truth of the world and know the God we turned our backs on.
