It’s All Good!!

Then Samuel told him everything, and hid nothing from him. And he said, “It is the Lord. Let Him do what seems good to Him.” —1 Samuel 3:18

A determination to know what cannot be known always works harm to the Christian heart.

Ignorance in matters on our human level is never to be excused if there has been opportunity to correct it. But there are matters which are obviously “too high for us.” These we should meet in trusting faith and say as Jesus said, “Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.”…

Human curiosity and pride often combine to drive us to try to understand acts of God which are plainly outside the field of human understanding. We dislike to admit that we do not know what is going on, so we torture our minds trying to fathom the mysterious ways of the Omniscient One. It’s hard to conceive of a more fruitless task….

Under such circumstances the Christian thing to do is to say, “That thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest…. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.” A blind confidence which trusts without seeing is far dearer to God than any fancied knowledge that can explain everything….

To the adoring heart, the best and most satisfying explanation for anything always will be, “It seemed good in thy sight.”

“Lord, help me today, no matter what difficult circumstances I may face, to pray with Jesus, ‘for so it seemed good in Thy sight,’ and with Eli, ‘It is the Lord. Let Him do what seems good to Him.’ Amen.”
