God Has the Answers

Description

In our Christian life and experience, it is a blessed thing to find out that we do not have to know everything after all!

"Lord, make me to know . . . the measure of my days . . . that I may know how frail I am." (Psalm 39:4)

We can all learn something from David’s prayer -- for none of us has all of the answers! David had come through the trying experiences of life and was now unsure about the things he once thought he knew. In the autumn of his life, I think David was a more relaxed man and more dependent on the divine answers.

I found a lesson in this for myself and I pass it on.

Some time ago I preached for a week in Rochester, New York. At the conclusion and before the benediction, the chairman of the congregation told the audience: “We have enough time for questions. Mr. Tozer will answer any questions you have.”

This was news to me, so I got up and said: “Mr. Chairman, you are twenty-five years too late! Twenty-five years ago I could have answered questions on almost any subject, but now I beg to be excused!”

In our Christian life and experience, it is a blessed thing to find out that we do not have to know everything after all!

Lord, instead of getting simpler, life seems to get more complex year after year. I need Your divine help to sort out the confusion, Lord. Thank You that I can trust in You—always.
