Our habit of looking back in life’s rear-view mirror can put us on a collision course. We can lose sight of God’s steadfast grip in our life.
Just because you can’t see God doesn’t mean He isn’t there, continually at work in your life. You may not understand what He’s doing but never doubt it—you are the object of God’s concern. And you can trust that His plan for you is perfect.
We wrestle with God’s sovereignty because we want to be in control of what happens to us. But God sees the whole picture of our lives from start to finish...and He says, “Trust Me. I know what’s best for you.”
There’s a lot about God’s plan we don’t understand. But He never promised He’d tell us His plan—He just promised He has one. Our part is to trust Him in the mystery.
We don’t need to understand God’s will. Our job is to obey.
