“Nothing Happens by Chance!”

Our Lord works, “All things after the counsel of His own will.” (Eph. 1:11) “Does not the Lord lay out beforehand the road in which His people should walk? And does He not put a trial here and a sorrow there; an affliction at this turning and a cross at that corner? None of our trials come upon us by chance! They are all appointed in weight and measure and are all designed to fulfill a certain end. So then, however painful they may at present be, yet they are intended for your good. All is definitely planned in His infinite wisdom, to bring ‘His people’ safely home to Zion!”  ~ J. C. Philpot
