Our Inheritance

In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, 
being predestined according to the purpose of 
him who works all things after the counsel of 
his own will.  Ephesians 1:11

We are constantly ensnared by looking at secon-
dary causes--we do not realize God in everything.
Were we more alive to the fact that there is not an 
event which happens to us, from morning to night,
in which the voice of our Father may not be heard,
His hand seen, with what a blessed atmosphere
would surround us! Man and circumstances would
then be received as so many agents and instruments
in our Father's hand; so many ingredients in His
cup for us. Thus would our minds be solemnized,
our spirits calmed, our hearts subdued. 
C A Coates

Wow, reader, I can hardly take it in. "God works all
things after the counsel of his own will." Just this
day, I was blocked from my iPad and Glen spent a
few hours trying to re-connect me. As a Believer,
this has significance and is an opportunity for God.
He works all things for good. What a place to rest
when life falls in, prayers are not answered, plans
are thwarted.
