God Doesn't Have to Explain Himself
by Charles R. Swindoll
Even in the midst of disappointment, surprise, and mystery, you will discover an amazing thing. You will discover how very reliable and trustworthy God is—and how secure you are in His hands. And oh, how we need that in this day of relativism and vacillation, filled with empty talk and hidden behind a lot of semantic footwork. In the midst of "Spin City," it is the Lord who talks straight. It is the Lord who has preserved Truth in black and white in His Word. And it is the Lord who has the right to do as He wishes around us, to us, and in us.
Puzzling as the process may be to us, He stays with His plan. There is no need for us to know all the reasons, and He certainly doesn't need to explain Himself. If we're going to let God be God, then we're forced to say He has the right to take us through whatever process He chooses.
Let Him have His way with your life, for nothing is worse than resisting and resenting the One who is at work in you.
God has the right to take us through whatever process He chooses. —Chuck Swindoll Tweet This
