I’ve been thinking about this phrase especially in light of this summer’s rain. We started the year thinking it would be dry and planned accordingly only to live through an historically wet year. We look out and see the promise of unimaginably abundant crops only to see them get struck down by hail and waterlogged by downpours.
Even as you think about what could have been, grow frustrated with more rain, and wait to get into the fields, may you be reminded of the bigness of God that He is far wiser than you (as hard as that may be to admit) and that He has a plan for His creation (including you!) even when we can’t plainly see it. Take comfort in knowing that God has been here from before the beginning of time and that He promises to care for and provided for all your needs.
