If you're like me, sometimes you wonder what God is up to. You want Him to speak to you and tell you what lies ahead. As Jaime and I read through Spurgeon's Morning and Evening Devotions last night, this one sentence convicted me and comforted me big time:
If the Lord has ordained to save you, surely he will not refuse to instruct you in his ways.
So simple. If he's done the greater thing, why do I doubt him to do the lesser? Immediately Rom. 8:32 came to mind,
He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all, how will he not, along with him, graciously give us all things?
As did Eph. 2:8-10,
For by grace you have been saved through faith and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not as a result of works so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
Oh, for more faith to trust in the God who has done the greatest act of all -- rescuing me from the wrath I deserve and bringing me into the kingdom of his beloved Son. Oh for more faith to trust in the God who is more gracious than any father and delights to give his children good things. And oh, for more faith to trust in the God who is up to more than I could ask or think for His glory and my good.
