Jerry Bridges — From our limited vantage point…

From our limited vantage point, our lives are marked by an endless series of contingencies.  We frequently find ourselves, instead of acting as we planned, reacting to an unexpected turn of events.  We make plans but are often forced to change those plans.  But there are no contingencies with God.  Our unexpected, forced change of plans is a part of His plan.  God is never surprised; never caught off guard; never frustrated by unexpected developments.  God does as He pleases and that which pleases Him is always for His glory and our good.
