Every Sunday, join me here as I leave the words to those who have come before me – inspired writers from the Bible as well as others who followed in their footsteps. I pray the portions of Scripture, commentaries, and songs you find here will bless you as they have me.
“Believer, if your inheritance be a lowly one, you should be satisfied with your earthly portion; for you may rest assured that it is the fittest for you. Unerring wisdom ordained your lot, and selected for you the safest and best condition.
It may be you would run aground and suffer shipwreck, if your divine Captain did not steer you into the depths of affliction where waves of trouble follow each other in quick succession. Some plants die if they have too much sunshine. It may be that you are planted where you get but little, you are put there by the loving Husbandman, because only in that situation will you bring forth fruit unto perfection.
Remember this, had any other condition been better for you than the one in which you are, divine love would have put you there.
You are placed by God in the most suitable circumstances, and if you had the choosing of your lot, you would soon cry, ‘Lord, choose my inheritance for me, for by my self-will I am pierced through with many sorrows.’
Be content with such things as you have, since the Lord has ordained all things for your good. Take up your own daily cross; it is the burden best suited for your shoulder, and will prove most effective to make you perfect in every good work and work to the glory of God.”
