What a source to which we can look in all times of trouble; the heart can have no misgivings! Man is erring, stubborn, rebellious, and defiant even against God; but the Lord is kind and patient and of tender compassion. He has heaven and earth at His command, and He knows just what we need even before we present our necessities and desires before Him.
We can see only a little way before us;
“but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.”
He never becomes confused. He sits above the confusion and distractions of the earth, and all things are opened to His divine survey; and from His great and calm #eternity He can order that which His #providence sees is best.
If we were left to ourselves to plan, we should make mistakes. Our #prejudices, our weaknesses, our self-deceptions, and our ignorances would be manifest in many ways. But the work is the #Lord’s, the cause is His; He never leaves His workmen without divine directions.
Whatever burdens lay #heavily, cast them on the Lord. He that keepeth Israel neither slumbers nor sleeps. Repose in #God. He is kept in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on #God.
“Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.” …
We need to cherish faith.
You must learn the simple art of taking God at His word; then you have solid ground beneath your feet.
