I read this today in Oswald Chambers’ writings…

“A saints life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer.  God is aiming at something the saint cannot see, and God stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says – ‘I cannot stand any more.’  God does not heed, God goes on stretching till his purpose is in sight, then he lets the arrow fly.”

And I think about how many times we’ve prayed to God to lighten the load, to ease the frustration, to lessen the pain…and all the while God is aiming us at a particular place, situation, or whatever…so that we might be the blessing to reveal God’s power…

Peace
