Smith: straight from the Father

Thursday, November 25, 2021
    Commemoration of Katherine of Alexandria, Martyr, 4th century
    Thanksgiving (U.S.)
    [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 Happy Life, London: F. E. Longley, 1876, p. 84 (see the book)
    See also Dan. 2:21; 6:27; Matt. 7:11; 10:29-31; Jas. 1:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the source for all goodness.
