Prince Caspian

On Sunday (yes, I have been seeing a lot of movies lately) we went to see Prince Caspian, the next instalment of The Chronicles of Narnia. Not quite the same as the book (for example Caspian was only 12 in the book!) but not enough to seriously matter. Decent acting, beautiful scenery, superb cinematography.

The subject matter, on the other hand, I find uncomfortable. Does God really leave us to our own devices at times? Yes, he will never leave us nor forsake us; but when he doesn't immediately answer a cry for help, well… what then? How do we know what to do?

Yes, sometimes God really does "leave us to our own devices" and calls for help will often go "unanswered". Sometimes He does this because we need to learn a lesson; sometimes it's the natural consequences of our disobedience and sometimes it seems to be because He's God and He can i.e. he wouldn't be sovereign with ways higher than ours if we could fathom all the reasons why.
