Rest and Purpose and God’s Glory

I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me. . . God, be exalted above the heavens; let your glory be over the whole earth. . .Psalm 57:2,5 CSB

Oswald Chambers My Utmost for His Highest, August 10 entry. . .

Look at God’s incredible waste of His saints, according to the world’s judgment. God seems to plant His saints in the most useless places. And then we say, “God intends for me to be here because I am so useful to Him.” Yet Jesus never measured His life by how or where He was of the greatest use. God places His saints where they will bring the most glory to Him, and we are totally incapable of judging where that may be.

What do I do when it feels like the setbacks outnumber the advances? That is precisely the time to put perfectionism and expectation on the altar and

[Be] at rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will never be shaken. . .trust in him at all times. . pour out your heart before him. . .Psalm 62:1,2,8 CSB

If my life belongs to God, then He sets the agenda. He controls the outcome. My responsibility is to obey what I know and rejoice that He is good and He will fulfill his purpose for me (and give my body an extra week to adjust to new medicine regimen)
