Gathering in Christ

Luke 2:51
Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them, but His mother kept all these things in her heart.

God is not concerned about our aims. He does not say, “Do you want to go through this bereavement, this upset?” He allows these things for His own purpose. We may say what we like, but God does allow the devil, He does allow sin. He does allow bad men to triumph and tyrants to rule, and these things either make us fiends or they make us saints -- it depends entirely on our relationship with God. If we say, “Your will be done,” we get the tremendous consolation of knowing that our Father is working everything according to His own wisdom… If we understand what God is after, we shall be saved from being mean and cynical.
