 TOZER - TRIALS AND PAIN: COOPERATE WITH THE INEVITABLE

December: Trials and Pain

The devil, things and people being what they are, it is necessary for
God to use the hammer, the file and the furnace in His holy work of
preparing a saint for true sainthood. It is doubtful whether God can
bless a man greatly until He has hurt him deeply.

The Root of the Righteous, 157.

December 25

Trials and Pain: Cooperate With the Inevitable

Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever
state I am, to be content.
--Philippians 4:11

This idea was once expressed better by a simple-hearted man who was
asked how he managed to live in such a state of constant
tranquility even though surrounded by circumstances anything but
pleasant. His answer was as profound as it was simple: "I have
learned," he said, "to cooperate with the inevitable."...

Though we cannot control the universe, we can determine our
attitude toward it. We can accept God's will wherever it is
expressed and take toward it an attitude of worshipful
resignation. If my will is to do God's will, then there will be no
controversy with anything that comes in the course of my daily
walk. Inclement weather, unpleasant neighbors, physical handicaps,
adverse political conditions--all these will be accepted as God's
will for the time and surrendered to provisionally, subject to
such alterations as God may see fit to make, either by His own
sovereign providence or in answer to believing prayer.
Born After Midnight, pp. 64-65

"How can I complain in the light of the worderful gift of Your
Son, born to give life-and victory? Work Your will in my life
today as I celebrate the incarnation and all that it entails.
Amen."
