And It Came To Pass

“‘And it came to pass after a while, that the brook dried up, because there had been no rain in the land,’ I Kings 17:7.  Weigh attentively these five words:  ‘And it came to pass.’  They mean far more than that it merely happened:  they signify that the Divine decree concerning the same was now fulfilled.  ‘It came to pass’ in the good providence of God, who orders all things after the counsel of His own will, and without whose personal permission nothing occurs, not even the falling of a sparrow to the gournd, Matt. 10:29.  How this should comfort the children of God and assure them of their security.”  –A.W. Pink “The Life of Elijah” p. 48

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
