Declaration of Divine Plans
(Jeremiah 29:8-11; 1 Thessalonians 5:3)

Jeremiah warns the people against listening to prophets who prophesy falsely—“I have not sent them, saith the Lord.” Our problem is not one of proportion: how much worldliness can I live in? but of spiritual insight which will enable me to live a holy life in the midst of worldliness, looking for the fulfilment of God’s promises. The man who builds a temple on the slopes of a mountain is a fool; the only thing that is not out of place on a mountain is a cottage, because it does not ape the mountain. With the great towering world all around them God’s children are as cottages tucked away in safety, and the word of Our Lord comes, “Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” The great craze today is work: God’s word is “wait.” Patience means standing under and enduring until the strain is past. The Spirit of God never adopts the tactics of the world. Remain uncrushably true to Jesus Christ wherever the providential order of God places you.
