1. Say, "He brought me here. It is by His will I am in this strait place and in that fact I will rest."
2. He will keep me here in His love and give me grace to behave as His child.
3. Then he will make the trial a blessing, teaching me the lessons He intends for me to learn.
4. In His good time He can bring me out again - how and when He knows.
So let me say, I am (1) here by God's appointment; (2) in His keeping; (3) under His training; and (4) for His time.
