The Lord led me to this devotional today.
It is the right message at the right moment for many of us and so I pass it along.
Extraordinary. Encouraging. Insightful.

THE UNDETECTED SACREDNESS OF CIRCUMSTANCES
"All things work together for good to them that love God."
Romans 8:28

The circumstances of a saint's life are ordained of God. In the life of a saint there is no such thing as chance. God by His providence brings you into circumstances that you cannot understand at all, but the Spirit of God understands. God is bringing you into places and among people and into conditions in order that the intercession of the Spirit in you may take a particular line. Never put your hand in front of circumstances and say -- "I am going to be my own providence here; I must watch this, and guard that." All your circumstances are in the hand of God, therefore never think it strange concerning the circumstances you are in.
-Oswald Chambers
