God's Ways Behind the Scenes
Selected authors

"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee, because He trusteth in Thee" (Is. 26:3).

"Godís ways are behind the scenes: but He moves all the scenes which He is behind. We have to learn this, and let Him work, and not think much of manís busy movements--they will accomplish Godís. The rest of them all perish and disappear--we have only peacefully to do His will." -- J.N.D.

"I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; for Thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety" (Ps. 4:8).

"The sovereignty of the Father is what alone gives rest to the Christian heart in view of a world full of evil, which is gone astray from Him. To know that after all, in spite of the rebellion of the creature, things are as absolutely in His hand as ever they were--this brings, and alone brings, full relief. Still He rules over all, and where evil cannot be turned to good, limits and forbids it: He maketh the wrath of man and Satan to praise Him, and the remainder of wrath (what would go beyond this) he restrains" (Ps. 76:10). -- F.W.G.
