“And they were astonished beyond measure, saying, “He has done all things well.” Mark 7:37

Let us remember it as we look forward to the days yet to come.  We know what they may be, bright or dark, may or few.  But we know that we are in the hands of Him who “doeth all things well.  He will not err in any of  His dealings with us.  He will take away and give – He will afflict and bereave – He will move and He will settle, with perfect wisdom, at the right time, in the right way.  The great Shepherd of the sheep makes no mistakes.  He leaves every lamb of  His flock by the right way to the city of habitation.

We shall never see the full beauty of these words till the resurrection morning.  We shall then look back over our lives, and know the meaning of everything that happened from first to last.  We shall remember all the way by which we were led, and confess that all was “well done.”  The why and the wherefore, the causes and the reasons of everything which now perplexes, will be clear and plain as the sun at noon-day.

-J.C. Ryle
