He Knows The Way

Job 23:8-10
Look, I go forward, but He is not there, And backward, but I cannot perceive Him; 9 When He works on the left hand, I cannot behold Him; When He turns to the right hand, I cannot see Him.
10 But He knows the way that I take...

There are plenty of times in one's life when it is difficult to discern what God is doing. I don't think that this occurs only in seasons of hardship. Sometimes it's hard to know what God is doing in the good times too - it's just that we don't ever stop to ask. We just ride that wave for as long as we can. In either circumstance, the question of "why" is rarely answered to my satisfaction. So we must cling to what we know: His plans for us are to bless and not harm us (Jer. 29:1); In all things God is working for my good (Rom. 8:28); His Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Ps. 119:105); etc. So my obedience is not based on my ability to "see" Him, only to have heard Him. For He knows the way I take..."

Lord, let me come through this season tested and purified like gold.
