“We may be frankly bewildered at things that happen to us, but God knows exactly what He is doing, and what He is after, in His handling of our affairs. Always, and in everything, He is wise: we shall see that hereafter, even where we never saw it here… Meanwhile, we ought not to hesitate to trust His wisdom, even when He leaves us in the dark.” -Knowing God, J. I. Packer
I always love that feeling that I get when I come to the end of a trial and finally realize just what God was doing through it. It makes it so worth while! But then I wonder why I didn’t begin the trial trusting God in the first place, and why I doubted that there was in fact a worthy cause behind it.
You see, God is completely wise. While we’re confined to our tiny view, He can see the whole picture. We’re not the omniscient ones, He is. He knows what He is doing and it is our privilege to trust Him.
