What He has purposed

"Only with the benefit of hindsight is it possible to see all the intricate details of God's plan working together for the good of his people. So also in our own lives, we may well have no idea what God is doing. He may seem hidden and remote, refusing to answer our prayers and to give us what we so earnestly ask of him. Wait! The end of our story has not yet been told, and who knows how the pieces of the jigsaw that at present seem to have no logical connection with one another will ultimately come together . . . sometimes [God's work] is a quiet faithfulness to his promises in the seemingly ordinary providences of life, bring about in the hearts of his people what he has purposed."

--Iain M. Duguid
