Psalm 85:12-13

Indeed, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its produce. Righteousness will go before Him and will make His footsteps into a way.
Psalm 85:12-13
In his book The Green Letters, Miles J. Stanford shared an illustration that was given by Dr. A. H. Strong. A student asked Strong, the president of his school, “whether he could not take a shorter course than the one prescribed. ‘Oh yes,’ replied the President, ‘but then it depends upon what you want to be. When God wants to make an oak, He takes a hundred years, but when He wants to make a squash, He takes six months.’” There are no shortcuts to godliness. Your experiences can be the tools God uses to make you the man or woman He wants you to be. Paul said, “We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us” (Romans 5:3-5). Are you willing to trust in God as He leads you across the landscape of your pilgrimage, the topography of the soul? If so, hope, endurance, and faith are qualities you can expect to become evident in your life.
