[Manna - November 2]
It is the Lord: let Him do what seemeth Him good. 1 Samuel 3:18
WE know not what is for our highest welfare. Sometimes those things which we crave and desire to grasp, considering them to be good, might really be to our disadvantage. Blessed are they who are able by faith to pierce the gloom of every trial and difficulty and perplexity, and to realize that "The Lord knoweth them that are His," and that He is causing all things to work together for their good. Z. '01-148 R2806:4
We are to wait patiently for the Lord, and to take patiently such experiences as His providences may mark out for us, questioning not the wisdom, the love and the power of Him with whom we have to do. Z. '01-317 R2888:2
