God’s way is always right.
It doesn’t always make sense—in fact . . . it is often mysterious. It can seldom be explained. It isn’t always pleasurable and fun.
But I have lived long enough to realize that His way is always right . . . .
I believe that not until we embrace God’s sovereignty will we have the ability to reason our way through life.
Until then we will be too important in the plan. Man’s opinion will be too significant to us. And we will churn and wrestle and struggle our way through this Christian life, trying too hard to please people rather than living it relieved and relaxed in His plan.
