Phil Coulson speaks on half a verse in John’s gospel (John 6:17b) – “It was now dark, and Jesus was not come to them”. Why does the Lord allow us to go through dark times? Why, when we can’t see the right way – when we feel lost – does He sometimes leave us alone and not come to us? Why do some believers who don’t seem very keen in spiritual matters seem to fare all right, while others who dedicate their whole lives to the Lord seem to go through such dark trials? Phil Coulson brings comforting and insightful Scripture truth to these hard questions in a message given at the Thanksgiving Conference in Vancouver in 2014 (Ignore the hiss on the recording – this is a message worth listening to!).
