“He knows . . .” 1,000 Gifts

“He knows the way I take…” Job 23:10

What a comforting thought.  No, comforting isn’t really a strong enough word, is it?  The idea that the Lord knows the way I take when it is all darkness and cloud and hyieroglyphics to me is WONDERFUL in the truest sense of that word.

(We need to pay more attention to the words we throw around.  But that’s an entire ‘nother post.)

As L.B. Cowman says…

The furnace is hot, but not only can we trust the hand that kindles it, but we have the assurance that the fires are lighted not to consume, but to refine; and that when the refining process is completed (no sooner–no later) He brings His people forth as gold.”

Aaaaahhhhhh . . .
