How do we keep a clear mind with a big picture perspective when circumstances are constantly changing? How do we remain faithful to God in the midst of our current difficult circumstances?

This week on the podcast, we’re reflecting on the life and lessons of Dr. J.I. Packer, the author of Knowing God and many other Christian classics.

Earlier this summer, one of our heroes in the faith, Dr. J.I. Packer went to be with the Lord at the age of 93. Dr. Packer was truly a gift to the Church, and some of his best lessons are found in his excellent work, Knowing God. This week on the podcast we’re talking through some lessons from that book about how to keep a kingdom perspective, the difference between optimism and biblical hope, and how we can trust God in the midst of difficult circumstances.

When things get hard, we can sometimes lose sight of what’s really important. At Impact 360 Institute, we’re here to be an ally for you as we grow in knowing God together, even in the midst of uncertainty.
