The only thing that concerns us

by J.R. Miller

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

Is not God wise enough to manage the complications of our lives and to bring order and beauty out of them? Has He not skill enough? Is He not our Father? and will He not always do the very best and wisest thing for us? Should we not trust Him and cease to be anxious about anything that we have committed to Him? Is not anxiety, doubt? and is not doubt, sin? We are simply to commit our way to the Lord, trust Him, and be at peace.

The only thing that concerns us, is our DUTY. God will weave the complicated web of our lives, into patterns of beauty, unless we mar it by our follies and sins. But His plans are sometimes very long, and our impatience may mar them, as well as our sins. The buds of His purposes, must not be torn open. We must wait until His fingers unfold them.

“Commit your way to the LORD. Trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:5
