Don Fortner is pastor of Grace Baptist Church of Danville, KY.
The wise, unerring hand of His good providence!
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
All that has been, is and shall hereafter be–is brought to pass by our God, for the everlasting good of His elect. Let us find in this blessed truth . . .
comfort for every sorrow,
strength to endure every trial,
courage to face every foe and
joy to lighten the load of our daily pilgrimage through this world.
Let us carry through the day, through the year and through all the days of our lives–the comfort of this blessed fact: “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” As all things have their beginning with the will, purpose, and decree of our heavenly Father–so all things are brought to pass by the wise, unerring hand of His good providence, and shall ultimately bring forth everlasting praise to Him.
Let these things inspire our hearts to heed the admonition of 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
Hope this was a blessing and encouragement to you.
