delayed consolation reveals a sovereign God

Standard

God is pleased sometimes to delay giving what is needful until the last—to exercise our faith, our patience and resignation. And though the things may be of a common nature, yet, to an observing eye, there is a beautiful concurrence of providences, all wisely ordered by him, without whom a sparrow or a hair cannot fall to the ground.  My anxious cares profit me nothing. But the heavenly care supplies all my needs.

by James Meikle April 26, 1783.
