Better He choose ( Psalm 47 v4 )
Having attended Bible college for three
years, living by faith, this meant we had
trusted God to meet all our needs. We had
three children, it was very challenging. I
who had not liked school had successfully
completed the course. I had done everything
one is supposed to do to qualify for missionary
work. We applied to the mission we thought
was Gods place for us, only to receive word,
they would not accept us, we did not even get
an interview. This was the pattern with most of
the missions we applied for. My dear wife even
completed a year at Bible college, but it did not
Change anything. Looking back now I can trace
Gods leading, but at the time it was hard. A verse
in Psalm 47 v4 was encouraging and instructive
it reads'', He will choose our inheritance for us''.
and here's the good news He did.
''I loved to choose and see my path
but now lead me on''
( J.H. Newman)
