God Is Always Working Something on Our Behalf

When I was 8 years old I started helping Dad in the field. Since I was so small that I couldn’t use a foot clutch, Dad put me on an old John Deere with a hand clutch. Knowing what I know now, I'm certain that Dad was watching me closely—prepared to move me on to more difficult tasks requiring more responsibility just as soon as he could safely do so. But I didn't know it at the time. All I knew was that it was a long way from one end of the field to the other.
I remember my surprise whenever Dad would give me a new assignment that appeared to me to be way out of my league. While I thought nothing had been going on, Dad had been preparing me for bigger and better challenges.
It's not so different with a life lived by faith in God. While sometimes it seems as if nothing's going on, God is preparing us for bigger and better challenges. While sometimes it seems as if all we're doing is just going back and forth from one end of the field to the other, God is preparing us for assignments that will appear to us to be way out of our league.
