A friend posted this Paul Tripp excerpt yesterday and it really made me stop and ponder.
“Your story isn’t an autobiography. Your story is a biography of wisdom and grace written by another. Every turn He writes into your story is right. Every twist of the plot is for the best. Every new character or unexpected event is a tool of His grace. Each new chapter advances His purpose. “‘Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them; for the ways of the Lord are right'” (Hosea 14:9). It is almost a gross understatement to say that God’s ways are better. How could they not be? He is infinite in wisdom and grace!”
-Paul David Tripp from July 21 meditation in book New Morning Mercies.
Every incident, circumstance and person in my life is part of God’s divine plan and purpose for my life. He does all for my ultimate good and His glory. So I need to fully trust Him, knowing He is faithful, wise, good and sovereign over every detail and every second of my life.
Are you able to trust this God who is writing your life story?
