(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.
Our own path through life is dark and devious, and beset with difficulties and dangers.
How full of consolation 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, to work together for good!
Therefore “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

“There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother!” Proverbs 18:24
God helps and blesses us through our friendships. But these are meant only to draw us up to Himself. Jesus is the only man in whom we can have eternal trust. All other friendships are only shadows. His is the perfect friendship.
Behind the sweet, gentle, human qualities in Jesus which make it so easy for us to come to Him and rest in Him is the power of the eternal God. When we come to His precious human love, for which our hearts crave and which seems so satisfying we know that His infinite, divine fullness lies behind the tender warmth of the Son of God. Therefore His humanity comes very close to us, We only need to lay our heads upon its bosom. Then when we lean on Him, we are lifted up in the arms of omnipotence.
Therefore “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given . . . and He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace!” Isaiah 9:6
