“He has made His wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate” (Psalm 111:4).
Our present conflicts can blind us to the larger purposes of God. For instance, when the Lord passes over the doorposts of the Israelites (Exodus 12), it was done not only for the good of his people there and then but, also, for all generations that would follow. In our tendency toward self-preoccupation, it is a needed reminder that God is working not just for me and my moments on this earth, but the redemption of all for eternity. Remember that!
