A Wonderful Presumption

There is so much in life that cannot be presumed upon. Perhaps this is the sentiment of James in teaching us to say, "As the Lord wills."

But, today, I have been particularly thankful to repeat over and over again, "I am sure that I can presume upon the goodness of God." Ah, there are certainly times of life that teach us to recognize that God's goodness is far richer in understanding than our own ideas of goodness. And how gracious is His understanding.

What a wonderful presumption, when so much of life is uncertain: The goodness of God is for sure.
