The designer of crooked paths

Ecclesiastes 7:13

Consider the work of God:
who can make straight what he has made crooked?

We don’t think of God making things crooked. Instead, we usually think of it being a mistake. But God doesn’t make mistakes. And God is sovereign. And the Bible tells us that He makes some paths crooked.

When we see things that are “crooked,” or not as we think they should be, remember that God has a plan and a purpose in ALL that He makes. Those things may cause us tears and heartaches. But we have reasons for hope.  God will someday wipe away all tears and make paths straight.

In the meantime, trust in God’s wisdom and love.  He has given us precious promises in His Word, which is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. (Psalm 119:105)
