What seems like failure from man can be just that from all views… except God’s. God doesn’t see as man sees. God sees the potential, the talent, the life and person one truly is despite “apparent” circumstances. God calls us to be in a relationship with Him to fulfill His purposes not our own. We must trust that God knows what He’s doing. We must realize that things don’t just happen. They happen because God allowed or ordered them. God will speak to us implicitly. We will know it in our very nature. When we communicate with God, and we realize that he is guiding us then we no longer seek to find His purposes, we accept that God knows what He’s doing. If we have our own purposes it destroys the peace, simplicity, and effortlessness that we should have as His children.
God, may we learn to accept and rejoice in the fact that you do know what you’re doing even if it’s not explicitly clear in our hearts and minds.
