We would wreck everything!
(J.R. Miller, "When the Song Begins" 1905)
Not only does God love us and desire our good — but His wisdom is infinite. He knows what is best for us, what things will do us the good we need. We ourselves do not know. The things we think would bring us blessing — perhaps would bring us irreparable harm! The things we dread as evil, and shrink from — perhaps are the bearers to us of divinest good! We would make pitiful work of our lives — if we had the ordering of our affairs in our own hands. If for but one day we could take matters into our own hands, out of God's hands — we would wreck everything!
"My times are in Your hands!" Psalm 31:15
