In Time of Trouble

My times are in your hands.
        —Psalm 31:15

In 1895, missionary Andrew Murray (1828–1917), suffering severe pain, wrote:

“In time of trouble, say:

First, God brought me here. It is by His will I am in this strait place; in that I will rest.

Next, He will keep me in His love and give me grace in this trial to behave as His child.

Then, He will make the trial a blessing, teaching me lessons He intends me to learn, and working in me the grace He means to bestow.

Last, In His good time He can bring me out again—how and when, He knows.

“I am here, 1) By God’s appointment. 2) In His keeping. 3) Under His training. 4) For His time.”

You don’t know how God will help you.
Just trust that he will.
