When we are going through a trial it is sometimes hard to see God’s hand, but then when you look back on the situation we can see that God was truly at work through it all. It is like a child who can’t understand why something hard is being asked of him. Perhaps he is blaming his father for the hard times and fails to see that his father is allowing it for his good. But once the child grows up he can see that all the hard times prepared him for the future and without them he would not have the strength to stand alone. That is why we must trust God in whatever situation we are facing and believe that He is at work in them. All that the Lord allows us to go through is for our good. No, we may not see it now, but the day shall come when we will. It may be years down the road, or it may not be until we get to heaven, but someday we will see that it was all for our good. We must just trust God and believe that He knows best and that He will care for his own. “The Lord knoweth them that are his” (II Timothy 2:19).
Thought for Today: No matter what circumstance you are facing, God is at work in it for your good and His glory.
