Beware of that practical atheism!
(from Winslow's, "The Glory of Christ in Heaven")
Beloved, God is in history.
God in every man's history.
God is in your history.
He is in every event, and circumstance, and
incident of your life. Whatever that history be,
God arranged it, shaped it, and tinted it.
Is it dark? He penciled it, with its somber hues.
Is it bright? He has thrown upon the canvas those beauteous colors.
Are they blended? He mingled and harmonized them.
Recognize and acknowledge, adore, love,
trust, and glorify Him for all, and in all.
"Acknowledge the Lord in all your ways."
Beware of that practical atheism which excludes
God from His own world; which excludes Him
from your individual history. He is not only
present in His created universe, but He is as
much in personal events of life, shaping,
guiding, overruling each and all.
