“He led them forth by the right way.” Psalm 107:7
God leads every one of His children by the right way. He knows where and under what influences, each particular life will mature best.
One tree grows best in the sheltered valley, another by the water’s edge, another on the bleak mountain top swept by storms. Every tree or plant is found in the precise locality where the conditions for its growth exist.
So does God give more thought to trees and plants than to His own children?
He places us amid the circumstances and experiences in which our life will grow and mature into Christlikeness. The peculiar discipline to which we are each subjected is the discipline we each need to bring out in us the beauties and graces of true spiritual character. Our heavenly Father knows what is best–He makes no mistakes!
“We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son!” Romans 8:28-29
