“In each seemingly hopeless case, however, Love’s restraint accomplished God’s purposes. Saving Egypt and the known world from starvation. Exalting God among a pagan nation as the one true God able to shut lions’ mouths. And providing a glimpse of eternity (the book of Revelation) through the pen of a lonely old man.
The same tender-yet-tough-to-understand divine restraint may be required in your life and mine. But it will also accomplish God’s purposes if we’ll trust Him. Though we may never know the full story here on earth, nothing will be wasted by God. Especially if we’ll entrust all our confusion to His heart and our lives to His hands.”
