An Encouragement from Thomas Chalmers

THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Would you be able to affirm with anything like solid confidence that God "governs all things in heaven and in earth"? Aren't there some things that chronic experience has taught us to exempt from the list of things God governs? Things like the state of the world, the state of the Church, the state of my house, the state of my head, the state of my health, or the thought that some difficult person might improve, etc. Consider "un-exempting" the impossible thing that has got you defeated, take it out of your strongbox of undiscussables and set it before the Lord one more time. (From "The Collects of Thomas Chalmers")
