Our Job Is to Obey
by Charles R. Swindoll
Let all who take refuge in You be glad,
let them ever sing for joy.
As you walk the path of trust, you will experience situations that simply defy explanation. When you look back, after the fact, you could never have figured out a better plan. At the time it seemed strange, mysterious . . . even illogical.
Let me assure you, that's God working. Things will happen that seem to be totally contradictory, but these are God's arrangements.
It was a wonderful day when I finally realized I don't have to explain or defend the will of God. My job is simply to obey it.
It is a waste of time trying to unscrew the inscrutable workings of God. You'll never be able to do it. That's simply the way God works.
He honors faith and obedience. He will honor your faith if you will trust Him in a walk of obedience.
And when you trust Him completely, you will enjoy inner quietness and security. You will have a secure confidence that you are walking in His will.
You will be surrounded by His peace.
