He knows what He is doing

“God’s will for you is your sanctification (1 Thess. 4:3). He wants you to share his holiness (Heb. 12:10). And the kindness of God in pursuing this for you is incomprehensively wonderful, because without his holiness you will have no real and lasting happiness. Only in his presence is fullness of joy (Ps. 16:11), and only the pure in heart will see him (Matt. 5:8).”

“The God who governs the visible and invisible worlds knows what he is doing in your life. The God who was brutally murdered on a Roman cross knows what it’s like to suffer and how to redeem it. Specifically how he will bring good out of your trials may be mysterious to you now, but that he will bring good out of them is not a mystery. It’s a promise.”

“The secret things are the Lord’s for a very good reason. Trust him with the mystery. But the revealed things are yours, and they are glorious. Believe them, and one day you’ll share God’s holiness and all the forevermore pleasures he has prepared for you (Ps. 16:11).”
