“Are you prepared to ask yourself what it is you want from God and why you want it? God always ignores your present level of completeness in favor of your ultimate future completeness. He is not concerned about making you blessed and happy right now, but He’s continually working out His ultimate perfection for you— ‘…that they may be one just as We are one…’ (John 17:22).” – Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest
This quote feels a bit brutal, but it provides a valuable reminder of God’s overall perspective that is larger than ours. Have you felt frustrated recently that your life is not moving the direction you felt it should? Sit and soak in how big our God is and how deep his love truly is for you, even though we may not be able to see it clearly.
