More Spurgeon from last year’s devotional reading:
We see only the beginning; God sees the end from the beginning. We spell the alphabet—alpha, beta, gamma … But from alpha to omega, God reads all at once. He knows every letter in the Book of Providence. He sees not only what He is doing, but also the final results.
God sees your present pain and grief. He also sees the future joy and the usefulness that will come from this affliction. He observes not only the plow tearing the soil, but also a golden harvest clothing that soil. He sees the consequences of affliction and knows that it will lead to much blessed happiness.
