I’ve been taking great comfort in a simple truth from scripture. In Psalm 138, David claims, “God will fulfill His purpose for me.”
It’s true. I don’t have to worry. As I think about all the times in the Bible that “purpose” occurs, I remember that nobody can thwart God’s purposes.
Nobody. And nothing.
The Lord’s purposes prevail.
In another translation, I read that “God will accomplish all that concerns me.”
When I think about all that comes against the child of God–rejection, discouragement, disappointment, suffering, death, depression, and every terrible thing–I remind myself that God fulfills His purposes for us.
Isn’t it comforting?
