Our Good, His Glory

I’m too busy/brainfried/uninspired to write an in-depth post right now, but wanted to share with you the following passage from a book I just started reading, Trusting God by Jerry Bridges:

“God never pursues His glory at the expense of the good of His people, nor does He ever seek our good at the expense of His glory. He has designed His eternal purpose so that His glory and our good are inextricably bound together. What comfort and encouragement this should be to us. If we are going to learn to trust God in adversity, we must believe that just as certainly as God will allow nothing to subvert His glory, so He will allow nothing to spoil the good He is working out in us and for us.” (pg. 25-26)
