Andrew Murray wrote the following thoughts about the Christian’s response to hardship… I believe it will encourage you!
“First, He brought me here. It is by His will I am in this strait place: in that fact I will rest.”
“Next, He will keep me here in His love, and give me grace to behave as His child.”
“Then, He will make the trial a blessing, teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn, and working in me the grace He means to bestow.
“Last, in His good time He can bring me out again—how and when He knows.”
“Let me say I am here…
1) By God’s appointment;
2) In His keeping;
3) Under His training;
4) For His time.”
