Through His Hands

May 24, 2023 Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. —Romans 8:28

Have you ever had a time when you just didn’t know what God was doing in your life? Maybe you’re struggling to get along with a child and can’t see how God will repair the relationship. Or perhaps you have more month than money, and you don’t see how you’re ever going to get ahead.

Let me share with you a wonderful truth that’s sometimes hard for us to grasp—God doesn’t make any mistakes.

Other people sometimes may make serious mistakes that affect us. But God is always fulfilling His eternal purposes, and they can’t be stopped by any human failure. If we’re in Christ, our lives are in His hands, and nothing can touch us that hasn’t first been filtered through His fingers of love.

Someone has said, “God’s will is exactly what we would choose if we knew what God knows.” When we stand in eternity, we’ll see clearly what we now know only by faith: He truly has done all things well.

Make it Personal

How does knowing that God never makes mistakes help you through difficulties?
