The Lord’s Definite Purpose

“Providence is wonderfully intricate. Ah! You want always to see through Providence, do you not? You never will, I assure you. You have not eyes good enough. You want to see what good that affliction was to you; you must believe it. You want to see how it can bring good to the soul; you may be enabled in a little time; but you cannot see it now; you must believe it. Honor God by trusting Him.”

–Charles Spurgeon

“Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”

Proverbs 19:20-21 NIV

  1. Great good wrought from immense pain. I’ll tell you this, I can see incredible blessings from our last trial. Yes. But I still have apprehension and bitterness to deal with too. Perhaps with God’s help someday that too will convert to blessings.

    Gotta pray more!
