John Newton once said: “We judge things by their present appearance; but the Lord sees them in their consequences. If we could do the same we would be perfect of His mind; but since we can’t, it is an unspeakable mercy that He will manage for us, whether we are pleased with His management or not; and it is regarded as one of His heaviest judgments when He gives any person up to the way of their own hearts, and to walk according to their own wisdom.” Crushed Christians are wild, and it happens virtually consistently. Crushed Christians don’t reveal a lot of insight. Satan high fives crushed Christians. But, we are called to be the light of the world. I cherish the quote attributed to D. L. Moody by Henry Varley: “The world has yet to see what God can do through a man or a woman who is fully devoted to Him.” As we encounter more of Him, our light shines bright in the world. Don’t be crushed; don’t be defeated; enjoy your victory in Christ Jesus, and keep shining for your light has come. That’s it!!!
