“If there is an all-powerful, loving God who is accomplishing His purposes behind the scenes, then we must never look at our present circumstances and conclude that what we see is all there is to reality.

No matter what life looks like presently, no matter how much it appears that evil is winning, humans don’t have the last word. God has the last word, and it is word of hope, peace, and victory to those who love Him and who are walking in His will.

But God’s purposes take time to work out. So what we need while we wait for God’s answer is patience and courage that comes from a robust faith, and an absolute, flat-out refusal to believe that what we see Is what we get.”
