Should it be according to your mind?
(James Smith, "Food for the Soul" 1867)
"Should it be according to your mind?" Job 34:33
Thus the infinitely wise God appeals to us — His poor foolish creatures.
We want our own way.
We wish to carve for ourselves.

He has drawn the plan of our lives.
He has marked out the paths we are to tread.
He has fixed the bounds of our habitation.
Yes, He has numbered the very hairs of our head!
He has arranged everything to secure our spiritual and eternal good. This He has told us in His Word — and yet we are not satisfied. But, "Should it be according to your mind?"
