CQOD: 01/04/08 -- Butterfield: the hand of God in history
Christian Quotation of the DayJanuary 4, 2008
And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be my people, and I will be your God.
-- Ezekiel 36:27,28 (NIV)
I am unable to see how a man can find the hand of God in secular history unless he has first found an assurance of it in his personal experience.
... Herbert Butterfield (1900-1979), Christianity and History, Scribner's, New York, 1950, p. 107
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, Your hand has guided all the circumstances of my life.
