Help for the Day

He led them forth by the right way. Psalm 107:7
God leads every one of His children by the right way. He knows where and under what influences each particular life will ripen best.
One plant grows best in the sheltered valley, another by the water’s edge, another on the bleak mountaintop swept by storms. God puts every tree or plant in the locality where the conditions of its growth exist, and does God give more thought to trees and plants, than to His own children? He places us amid the circumstances and experiences in which our life will grow and ripen the best.
The peculiar discipline to which we are each subjected is the discipline we especially need to bring out in us the beauties and graces of true spiritual character. God knows what is best. He makes no mistakes.
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
