Certainly you know God is God when He miraculously delivers you from a fire, but you can also know God is God (perhaps more wonderfully) when He walks through the fire with you. For those who have prayed for a way out, only to hear God say "not yet," I pray that you will not grow weary in doing good, that you will persevere and come forth as gold. If you believe God is sovereign, then you can be certain He knows the best road for you. He is too good to be unkind, too wise to be mistaken.
Remember that God lead Israel out of slavery to wander through the desert for 40 yrs before they entered the promise land. The journey should’ve taken 4-6 weeks. Why did God take them the long way?
I took you that long way so you could see the wickedness in your own heart.
I took you that long way so that you would learn that man does not live by bread alone.
I took you that long way so you would know that even in the difficulties, I never let you down.
