Can you smell what the Lord is cooking?

God is leading you away from danger, Job, to a place free from distress. He is setting your table with the best food. Job 36:16

Trusting through periods of  distress is like being able to smell a savory meal on the table at home while we’re still stuck in traffic. In order to keep following we have to know that God is good and that His intentions for us and for those we love are always motivated by His love for us. Knowing this helps us to keep following and to stay optimistic so that when the present is hard and the future is uncertain His joyful table is still tangible.

Lord, I’m starting to smell what You’re cooking.
