The Story of God

In our Sunday School class recently, we have been talking about how a person hears God’s voice. Sometimes, in the moment, it’s hard to see what God is doing. When we look at our past, however, sometimes the leading of God becomes clearer.

What is God doing in your life story? How has He used events to lead you to this place? What difficult challenges happened to guide you where you needed to be? God is always active and working in our lives (Romans 8:28). When we find how our story fits in with God’s story, our lives find meaning and purpose.
A book I have been reading recently pulled the camera back a little bit more and pointed out that each of our stories are like individual letters in the grand story God is telling in the world. Our stories together show what He is seeking to accomplish. My prayer for you today is that you will see God’s fingerprints on your past and present, that you will trust Him with your future, and that you will realize that you, together with all the children of God, are part of the grand story God is writing in this world.
