“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.
