God has counted the cost
I want to share these words from F.B. Meyer that spoke to me:
What a comfort it is to realize that God counted the cost before he set about the task of redemption, whether of a world or of us as individuals. He knew all that it would cost, and surely he did not begin what he cannot complete!
F. B. Meyer, Through the Bible Day by Day: A Devotional Commentary, vol. 5 (Philadelphia: American Sunday-School Union, 1914–1918), 141.
Be encouraged this day that God is in charge, that he has our best interests in mind, and that he is able to bring us through whatever life may throw our way.
