“Moving In the Unknown and Resting In the Unfamiliar”
God’s ways are behind the scenes;
but He moves all the scenes which He is behind.
We have to learn this, and let Him work.
- John Nelson Darby
When God wants to drill a man,
and thrill a man, and skill a man;
When God wants to mold a man
to play the noblest part;
When He yearns with all His heart,
to create so great and bold a man
that all the world shall be amazed,
Watch His methods, watch His ways!
How He ruthlessly perfects
whom He royally elects!
How He hammers him and hurts him,
and with mighty blows converts him
into trial shapes of clay which
only God understands;
While his tortured heart is crying
and he lifts beseeching hands!
How He bends but never breaks
when his good He undertakes;
how He uses whom He chooses,
and with every purpose fuses him;
By every act induces him
to try His splendor out—
God knows what He’s about!
When you’re unsure as to what the Lord is doing in your situation, sit in his presence and relinquish the need to know. Certainly God is able to certify your station of life and sustain you in much turbulence. I pray God’s grace will groom you for where He’s going with your process and press out your person to be conformed to his very image!!!
