“He [God] is always doing something–the very best thing, the thing we ourselves would certainly choose if we knew the end from the beginning. He is at work to bring us to our full glory.” ~Elisabeth Elliot
What are you struggling with today? We all have trials; some of them we think we can handle, some seem just too overwhelming. Often our hearts are heavy or we waver in indecision or we have a need that must be met.
I can’t see what God is doing. I don’t know the end from the beginning. But what’s exciting about that is that I can exercise my faith and trust in God through those situations. If it was always easy, if I always knew what to do, if I could meet my own needs, I wouldn’t need Him.
And ultimately, isn’t that what He wants – for me to recognize my lack and His sufficiency? God is working, always, and always for my best and His glory.
