So True Devotional

One of the great challenges and choices in life when faced with overwhelming trouble is to take things into our own hands or leave them in God’s hands. In life we can find ourselves in a moment of crisis standing at a fork in the road, having to consciously decide between trusting ourselves and resting in God’s sovereignty. At that moment, the wise man or woman realizes it is best to leave things with God.

A lady went to her local bank to withdraw some money from her account. Having received it from the teller, she proceeded to count it and then recount it. Wondering if he had made a mistake, the teller asked, “What is it, lady?

The inimitable and inspiring C. H. Spurgeon once said, “Oftentimes when I have been travelling on the Continent I have been obliged to put up at an hotel that was full, where the room was so inconvenient, that it scarcely furnished any accommodation at all. But we have said, ‘Oh, never mind: we are off in the morning! What matters it for one night?’ So, as we are soon to be gone, and the time of our departure is at hand, let us not be ruffling our tempers about trifles, nor raise evil spirits around us by cavilling and finding fault. Take things as you find them, for we shall soon be up and away.”

During the American Civil War, Senator Charles Sumner, captured by his grand plans for the abolition of slavery, was asked by Julia Ward Howe (who wrote the “Battle Hymn of the Republic”) to meet some friends who had suffered grievously because of slavery. To her surprise, the Senator declined and dismissed the request in a condescending manner: “Really, Julia, I have lost all interest in individuals.” She shot back: “Why, Charles, God hasn’t got as far as that yet.”
