For Israel, beyond the river of sorrow, there was the promised land. Just so, no trial for the present seems joyous, yet afterward it leads to blessing. There are rich foundations for good in every pain and trial. There are green fields beyond Jordan’s sorrows. Our disappointments are really God’s appointments, and bring rich rewards. Our losses are designed by God for our gain. No ultimate loss comes from our experiences, for “God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”

Our Father sends us nothing but what is ultimately good. Don’t worry about the package! Be it dull or attractive, it enfolds a gift of love!

Always!

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice (Philippians 4:4).

I am glad that Paul put in that “always.” Anyone can rejoice at some times. When the skies are blue, when the body is well and vigorous, when friends are many and hope is high, then it is not trouble at all for the heart to sing. Paul was not writing for the season of inevitable gladness, but for the times when it is very hard to smile. It is precisely then that we are to rejoice. Paul’s “always” means precisely always.
