The unerring hand of infinite wisdom



"My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my

 pleasure." Isaiah 46:10

Nothing is so calming and comforting to the
Christian pilgrim, as the assurance of Divine
Guidance
in every, even the most minute
circumstances which befall him.

Without this perception of his heavenly Father's
care, a thousand intricacies must beset his path.
He must be staggered at almost every step. But
when he beholds, by faith
the unerring hand of
infinite wisdom
, wielding the stupendous machine
of human events
causing everything to promote
the spiritual good of His people
then he quiets
himself as a little child, and can say with cheerful
resignation, "Father, not my will, but Thine be done."

In such a world of change and trial, how inestimable
is a calm reliance on the wisdom, power, and love of
God. It fully compensates for the lack of temporal
ease and wealth. If, without our heavenly Father,
not even a sparrow can fall to the ground; if the
very hairs of our head are all numbered
how
composed should we be.

The reins of universal nature are in the hands of
Infinite Love! This vast complex machine is guided
by Infinite Wisdom and Power! The Almighty Ruler
of the sky cannot be taken by surprise. Nothing
unforeseen can happen to cross His purposes or
thwart His designs. All worlds are open to His view.

If this Great and Glorious Being is our Father and
our Friend
then our privilege is to rejoice at all
times, and in everything to give thanks. How
consoling and encouraging is the assurance that
the blessed Redeemer of my soul, is the Great
Sovereign of the Universe! Without His permission
nothing can happen in the vast dominion over which
He sways His scepter! To His will every creature
must bow
either in willing obedience, or in just
and endless punishment!

"Lord, be pleased to impart unto me, Thy unworthy
 servant, this spirit of confidence in Thee. May I see
Thy hand in all the events of life
ordering the
 the minor, as well as in the greater movements of
 Thy Providence. This watching and waiting for the
 manifestations of Thy guardian care
will fill me
 with thankfulness for all my mercies, and make
 me patient under all my trials."

 

"My times are in Thy hand." Psalm 31:15

 

Thomas Reade
