Holiness-Wednesday Word


 

“Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,
Make you perfect in every good work to do his will, working in you that which is wellpleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” ~Hebrews 13:20-21

The Lord works in us what pleases Him, not us. At times that is a hard concept to grasp. We think we know what we want. We have an idea of how life should play out. We want all of our blessings to come quick and all of our experiences to be painless.

That is not how God works. We see the world with our limited knowledge. God sees everything through His omniscience and omnipotence. He knows what He is doing. There are reasons why He takes us the way that He does. He knows that the difficult experiences have potential to make us more like Jesus. What He is doing may not please you, but it pleases Him. Trust Him.
