03/13/21 Weekend Grif.Net – He Makes No Mistakes

&qu=
ot;In 1932, A.M. Overton was the pastor of a church in Mississippi. He =
had three small children, and his wife was pregnant with their fourth =
child. But when it came time for delivery there were complications, and =
both his wife and the baby died.

 

Dur=
ing the funeral service, the preacher officiating the service noticed =
Pastor Overton writing something on a piece of paper. After the service =
the minister asked him about it, and he handed him the paper with a poem =
he had just written, which he titled ‘He Maketh No Mistake.’ The poem =
reads as follows:

 

&qu=
ot;My Father’s way may twist and turn,

My =
heart may throb and ache,

But=
in my soul I’m glad to know,

He =
maketh no mistake.

 

My =
cherished plans may go astray,

My =
hope may fade away,

But=
still I’ll trust my Lord to lead,

For=
He doth know the way.

 

Tho=
‘ night be dark and it may seem,

Tha=
t day will never break,

I’l=
l pin my faith, my all, in Him,

He =
maketh no mistake.

 

The=
re’s so much now I cannot see,

My =
eyesight’s far too dim,

But=
come what may,

I’l=
l simply trust and leave it all to Him.

 

For=
by and by the mist will lift,

And=
plain it all He’ll make,

Thr=
ough all the way, tho’ dark to me,

He =
made not one mistake."

 

How=
encouraging it is to realize that our gracious and omniscient God is in =
full control of everything that comes into our lives. He is our Shield, =
and nothing can touch us without first passing through Him. For His =
all-wise reasons, God allowed Satan to touch Job’s possessions and =
children and servants and even his own body, but only by divine =
permission. When things come our way, whether blessings or trials, we =
know they have come from the loving hand of God for our benefit and for =
His glory.  I Peter 5:7, 10-11 – "Casting all your care upon =
Him; for He careth for you. But the God of all grace, who hath called us =
unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a =
while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To Him be =
glory and dominion for ever and ever Amen."
