Butterfield: the hand of God in history

Friday, January 5, 2018
    [The LORD:] “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, London: Bell, 1949, 1950, p. 107 (see the book)
    See also Eze. 36:27-28; Rom. 1:20-22; 8:16; 2 Cor. 1:21-22; 5:5; Col. 2:2-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your hand has guided all the circumstances of my life.
