March 7

There are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh ll in al.--I COR. xii. 6.

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I he Lord do all these things.--ISA. xlv. 7.

  "All is of God that is, and is to be;
  And God is good." Let this suffice us still,
  Resting in childlike trust upon His will,
  Who moves to His great ends, unthwarted by the ill.
J. G. WHITTIER.

This, then, is of faith, that everything, the very least, or what seems to us great, every change of the seasons, everything which touches us in mind, body, or estate, whether brought about through this outward senseless nature, or by the will of man, good or bad, is overruled to each of us by the all-holy and all-loving will of God. Whatever befalls us, however it befalls us, we must receive as the will of God. If it befalls us through man's negligence, or ill-will, or anger, still it is, in every the least circumstance, to us the will of God. For if the least thing could happen to us without God's permission, it would be something out of God's control. God's providence or His love would not be what they are. Almighty God Himself would not be the same God; not the God whom we believe, adore, and love.
E. B. PUSEY.
