We don’t need to understand God’s will. Our job is to obey.
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.
For Bounds, prayer was as natural as breathing. He said, “Prayer should not be regarded as a duty which must be performed, but rather as a privilege to be enjoyed, a rare delight that is always revealing some new beauty.”
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.”
