We Often Fail to See the Big Story

Jon Bloom on Naomi and Ruth’s story:

The story and their parts in it were far bigger than they imagined. None of them could see it from their vantage point.

This is what we must remember in our times of desolation, grief, and loss. How things appear to us and how they actually are are rarely the same. Sometimes it looks and feels like the Almighty is dealing “very bitterly” with us when all the while he is doing us and many others more good than we could have imagined.

God’s purposes in the lives of his children are always gracious. Always. If they don’t look like it, don’t trust your perceptions. Trust God’s promises. He’s always fulfilling his promises.
