God is at work in your times of crisis

So when Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, but Mary remained seated in the house. Martha said to Jesus, “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” John 11:20-21

Our Bibles don’t have a misprint. The truth is, God doesn’t love the way we love. What appears unloving may in fact be the greatest kindness of all. We expect God to work our solution on our timetable.

Can you imagine the complexity of the tapestry God is weaving in the universe? We’re over here in our limited little corner without a clue about what’s going on in the bigger picture.

Faith says that what God is doing is right- even when we don’t understand.

I believe the whole tapestry will unfold for us someday, but for now I have to trust that He is after my good and His glory in every situation. I must have faith that what appears unloving may in fact be His greatest kindness.

Take hold of this with both hands: God is at work in your times of crisis. Whatever is challenging and stretching you right now in your family, your workplace, or in your personal walk with God- He is at work in that.

He is building your faith in every circumstance. He knows all about that thing that is breaking your heart. Will you believe He is at work?

On this day...
