Oswald Chambers has a way with words. I was amazed the other day by this quote: “When we deliberately choose to obey Him, then He will tax the remotest star and the last grain of sand to assist us with all His mighty power.” My experiences of late resonate with the truth in that statement. God works so intricately. We go through a lot that we do not always understand. There are times that we suffer and do not have an inkling of a reason why. Even so, those who walk with God have an amazing hope. Of course there is the hope of heaven, but there is also this hope that God is working all things together for good. There is the hope that God is doing something really, really good in my life. We are too small and oblivious to catch the scope of the way God works and most of the time the fine details escape us. However, there are moments, those amazing moments, when we see how He has been aiding us and ordering or path. We catch a glimpse of how everything gets put into place and goodness cascades down around us. If God does that in an individual life, then the intricacies of His plans on a universal scale must merit the word glorious in every way. God is good in a subtle, intricate, thoughtful, breath-taking way. God is so good.
