He Brought Me Here

Andrew Murray, quoted in Though the Mountains Shake, by Amy Carmichael, p. 12

First, He brought me here, it is by His will I am in this strait place: in that fact I will rest. Next, He will keep me here in His love, and give me grace to behave as His child. Then, He will make the trial a blessing, teaching me the lessons He intends me to learn, and working in me the grace He means to bestow. Last, In His good time He can bring me out again&md;how and when He knows.

Let me say I am here, (1) By God's appointment, (2) In His keeping, (3) Under His training, (4) For His time.
