Did Anything Happen?

When man looks at the work of God, he frequently concludes, "Nothing has happened." Because God uses tiny beginnings and seemingly insignificant events, man often misses God's workings. Because God's dynamic is quiet and often invisible, man's search for the bold and splashy ignores the real power. Because spiritual people discern spiritual things, man often fails to see God's ways.

For two months, this church has diligently searched--with prayer and fasting--for additional elders. The process has ended with the three men who currently serve as our shepherds reaffirmed but with no additional men selected. Some may conclude, "Nothing happened."

I see it differently. Something did happen! The process was not fruitless.

Some may conclude, "Nothing happened." I believe something happened and that "God works all things together for good."
