John Dagg, 1857
The Lord does whatever pleases Him in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths. Psalm 135:5-6
It should fill us with joy that God’s infinite wisdom guides the affairs of the world.
Many of its events are shrouded in darkness and mystery, and inextricable confusion sometimes seems to reign.
Often wickedness prevails, and God seems to have forgotten the creatures that He has made.
Our own path through life is dark and devious, and beset with difficulties and dangers.
How full of consolation is the doctrine, that infinite wisdom directs every event, brings order out of confusion, and light out of darkness, and, to those who love God, His infinite wisdom causes all things, whatever their present aspect and apparent tendency is, to work together for good.
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
