AND so I am not to worry about the coming crisis! God never is before His time, and never is behind! When the hour is come, I shall find that the great Host hath made “all things ready.”
When the crisis comes He will tell me how to rest. It is a great matter to know just how to rest...how to be quiet when “all without tumultuous seems.”
We irritate and excite our souls about the coming emergency, and we approach it with worn and feverish spirits, and so mar our Master’s purpose and work.
When the crisis comes He will tell me what to do. The orders are not given until the appointed day.
Why should I fume and fret and worry as to what the sealed envelope contains? “It is enough that He knows all,” and when the hour strikes the secrets shall be revealed.
And when the crisis comes He will tell me what to say. I need not begin to prepare my retorts and my responses.
What shall I say when death comes, to me or to my loved one? Never mind, He will tell thee. And what when sorrow or persecution comes? Never mind, He will tell thee.
