God Works Strangely

September 22, 2010

“See here the wisdom of God, who can make the worst things imaginable turn to the good of the saints. . . . The Lord made Joseph’s prison a step to preferment.  There was no way for Jonah to be saved, but by being swallowed up. . . . God enriches by impoverishing; He causes the augmentation of grace by the diminution of an estate. . . . God works strangely.  He brings order out of confusion, harmony out of discord.  He frequently makes use of unjust men to do that which is just.”

Thomas Watson (1620-1686), All Things For Good, p. 60.
