Trusting in God, we are not exercising a dreamy dependence upon a far-away and inactive power. It is asked whether God ever does operate on behalf of those who trust him; and it is hinted that he is otherwise occupied, and will not stoop to the petty cares of men and women. Obviously this is an error. God’s work is at our doors and in our chambers; yes, in our bodies, and in our minds. The child’s father is very busy, but he is busy in the room where his child is in need; and therefore he is where he is wanted to be.
The ordinary talk is of “The operations of Nature.” Pray, Sir, what is Nature? The gentleman who has used the term looks round with surprise. He stutters, and stammers, and says that everybody knows what Nature is. Tell us, then, what it is. “Why,” says he, “it is easy enough, Nature is—; Nature is Nature.” The truth is that the real Worker is God himself, and other force than his own power is nowhere to be found. The movements around us are not produced by laws, as simpletons say: laws do nothing; they are neither more nor less than certain observed methods of the great Creator’s working; but HE, himself, doeth the work. We may well trust him to work for us who is working all around us.
The Clue of the Maze.
