God's Will Prevails


In his private writings, Abraham Lincoln reflected on many pressing matters. Amidst the turbulence of the civil war in 1862, Lincoln reflected on "the will of God."

Without a doubt, the will of God prevails. What does that say about out our faithfulness and surety as we engage in spiritual warfare? We can only begin to know ourselves. At best, our motives are mixed. We are a broken people filled with contradictions. Yet we often act with righteous presumption.

Look back at Lincoln's reflection . "Both [sides] may be, and one must be, wrong."
