God’s Purpose or Mine?
What is my vision of God’s purpose for me? Whatever it may be, His purpose is for me to depend on Him and on His power now. If I can stay calm, faithful, and unconfused while in the middle of the turmoil of life, the goal of the purpose of God is being accomplished in me. God is not working toward a particular finish – His purpose is the process itself. What He desires of me is that “I see Him walking on the sea” with no shore, no success, nor goal in sight, but simply having the absolute certainty that everything is alright because I see “Him walking on the sea” (Mark 6:49). It is the process, not the outcome, that is glorifying to God.
