It is good to remember that “the One who holds the future is the One who holds our hands!” I take great comfort from His Word, “So do not fear for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.… I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘do not fear; I will help you’” (Isa. 41:10, 13).
We need to remember that God is not operating “under the circumstances,” but above them. That compels me to constantly seek the mind of the Lord and then to act according to His best practices. That, I have discovered, is the key to real success!
