If you have ever struggled with deep disappointments, unanswered prayers, or found your life crumbling around you, Conspiracy Theory was written just for you!
The world of social media shows us with real clarity the desire that people have to be connected to each other, but with the safety of an off switch. Real world intimacy can be very different – much better, but without the off switch. The greatest intimacy however is with God, whether we realize it or not. It can be difficult to take in the fact that God knows us better than we know ourselves, and that his love is bigger than anything we have ever experienced, yet not out of reach. Just as at the airport when we see through our luggage on the x–ray, nothing is hidden from Him nor do we have to hide anything. Not only that, but He reveals himself as so much bigger than us and also everything we need, which can free us from the bondage of being obsessed with ourselves – true liberation!
The roadmap for this book travels through one of the most loved and popular portions in the Bible – Psalm 139. It takes you on a journey from the heights of intimacy to the inevitable lows that life brings us, especially the ones that leave us saying ‘WOW – I never saw that coming.’ But that is when the need for intimacy with God can hit us like a brick. What if God is behind the WOW? What if we need to forgive and just cannot, or just do not understand what is going on, or feel that change is overwhelming?
Whether these situations are personal, physical, relational, or even bigger, when they arrive, it seems we realize then that we alone are not enough. Real intimacy with God is incredible but will require honesty, wrestling with difficult issues and asking challenging questions. Come along on this possibly life–transforming journey – it’s well worth the trip.
