Our “Inefficient” God

Our God is often pleased to be “inefficient” with ways and means of accomplishing His purposes. Rarely in Scripture do we see an uninterrupted path from someone’s early years to the time of their ministry. Consider Joseph and his two years in prison, Moses and his years tending sheep in the wilderness, David and his time being chased by Saul, Paul and his season of deeply harming the church. These are the common winding paths of God’s providence in His people’s lives.
