Smith: straight from the Father
[Daniel] said: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.”
—Daniel 2:20-21 (NIV)
To the children of God everything comes directly from their Father’s hand, no matter who or what may have been the apparent agents. There are no “second causes” for them.
... Hannah Whitall Smith (1832-1911), Christian’s Secret of a Holy Life, Boston: Willard Tract Repository, 1875, p. 84 (see the book)

Lord, You are the source for all goodness.
