did you also know that when you grow in your intimacy with God, you also make yourself vulnerable as well? Wait, what?

I thought if a person followed Jesus closely bad things won’t happen to good people.”
Not so! In fact, if you have determined to invest your life in God and cultivate an intimacy with the Almighty, you’re actually asking for it.
Some have called this the “Peril Principle.”
