Scripture at Sunrise 4.14.2015

“He shall choose our inheritance for us.” -Psalm 47:4

Our enemies would allot us a very dreary portion, but we are not left in their hands. The Lord will cause us to stand in our lot, and our place is appointed by His infinite wisdom. A wiser mind than our own arranges our destiny, the ordaining of all things is with God, and we are glad to have it so; we choose that God should choose for us. If we might have our own way we would wish to let all things go in God’s way.

Being conscious of our own folly, we would not desire to rule our own destinies. We feel safer and more at ease when the Lord steers our vessel than we could possibly be if we could direct it according to our own judgment. Joyfully we leave the painful present and the unknown future with our Father, our Savior, our Comforter.

O my soul, this day lay down thy wishes at Jesus’ feet! If thou hast of late been somewhat wayward and willful, eager to be and to do after thine own mind, now dismiss thy foolish self, and place the reins in the Lord’s hands. Say, “He shall choose.” If others dispute the sovereignty of the Lord and glory in the free will of man, do thou answer them, “He shall choose for me.” It is my freest choice to let Him choose. As a free agent, I elect that He should have absolute sway.

[from Faith’s Checkbook by Charles H. Spurgeon]

Scripture at Sunrise 9.9.2013

Now the donkeys of Kish, Saul’s father, were lost. So Kish said to Saul his son, “Take one of the young men with you, and arise, go and look for the donkeys.” -1 Samuel 9:3

There is nothing that happens by chance, happenstance, luck, or fate. Here, Saul was dreading going to look for lost donkeys in the hills of Ephriam, but look at the bigger picture God was painting! Here we have the invisible, providential hand of God working it all together for His glory and their good.

Even in the little mundane things, God is on the throne with a greater purpose.
