Time for a Great Quote! (Piper on God’s purposes in troubles)

24 Mar

“Life is not a straight line leading from one blessing to the next and then Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 6.21.30 AMfinally to heaven. Life is a winding and troubled road. Switchback after switchback. And the point of biblical stories like Joseph and Job and Esther and Ruth is to help us feel in our bones (not just know in our heads) that God is for us in all these strange turns. God is not just showing up after the trouble and cleaning it up. He is plotting the course and managing the troubles with far-reaching purposes for our good and for the glory of Jesus Christ.”
