We Are Not Orphans

I once wrote in an editorial that Christian believers are not orphans in this world, making the point that the divine Shepherd goes before us and that we travel an appointed way. A reader wrote to question my allusion to our traveling an “appointed” way, asking, “I was brought up a Methodist. In your comments, do you mean this to be foreordination? That is what the Presbyterians believe. Just what did you mean?” I replied that I had not meant to go down that deep into doctrine—that I had not been thinking of foreordination, predestination, or the eternal decrees. “I was just satisfied that if a consecrated Christian will put himself in the hands of God, even the accidents may be turned into blessings,” I told him. Anyway, I am sure the Methodist brother can go to sleep at night knowing that he does not have to become a Presbyterian to be certain that God is looking after him!

Verse

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord. Psalm 37:23

Prayer

Lord, indeed You know what will be from day to day, and You know me best. I am just glad that my life is in Your hands.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
