The Wisdom of God

In Reformed Baptist Fellowship on February 17, 2012 at 12:26 pm

It should fill us with joy, that 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, causes all things, whatever be their present aspect and apparent tendency, to work together for good.

  1. Since most of your posts are brief, it would be a convenience to readers who use a feed reader (e.g. Google Reader) to post the article in its entirety to the reader. When in a hurry, it is sometimes tempting not to click through to the blog, and it is annoying to click through to read the rest, only to discover that only a line or two remains to be read.

  2. Reblogged this on Justification by Grace and commented:
    Our beloved brethren at Reformed Baptist Fellowship provide a wonderful quote by John Leadly Dagg (1794-1884), which is certainly an appropriate companion to the 145-year-old quote from Charles Spurgeon, posted today at Justification by Grace. Thank you, brethren.
