Two Ways to Bolster Your Hope for the Coming Week

Suppose you were rich and contracted a sculptor to create a marble statue. As the sculptor began to chip away pieces of the block of marble, you might look at his work and think, “This doesn’t look like the statue I wanted.” What is unrecognizable to you is clearly seen in the mind’s eye of the sculptor who assures you he knows what he is doing. Your hope that you will get exactly what you want rests on trusting the sculptor’s word.

Now suppose you are the block of marble and God is the sculptor. His hammer and chisel are the circumstances, people and adversities in your life. As He begins to chip away pieces, you feel the pain of the chisel and in the mirror in which you can see yourself there is nothing recognizable taking shape. But the sculptor has assured you He knows what He is doing. Your hope to become what He desires rests on trusting the sculptor’s word.

In this wonderful post by John over at The Glory of the Grind, we read about the importance of trusting in God. We need to trust that God knows what He is doing, although we frequently do not see for ourselves what He is doing. The Great Creator has it all in hand, we need to trust in Him.
