“God is not the author of confusion.” 1 Corinthians 14:33
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11
O Lord, I am like a little child, knowing neither the beginning nor end of my ways; but You being a wonderful Counselor, I think it my only wisdom to be advised and ruled by You. O show me then always Your way in all things, even in the least, that I may never fail to do Your work in due season and due order. Make me such a faithful steward, as not to go one inch from Your will — but on all occasions to act and suffer according to Your good pleasure, to follow You in implicit obedience, seeking only to know Your will, and striving only to do it.
My soul, take your place at the feet of Jesus and learn of Him. He will be your teacher. He will instruct you with discretion. If He teaches you, His teaching will sanctify you, mold you into the will of God, and make you happy. It will make you willing to be ignorant of what God conceals and practically to improve what God reveals. No teacher like Jesus, nor is there any teaching like His!
God moves in a mysterious way.
His wonders to perform:
He plants His footsteps In the sea
And rides upon the storm.
Deep in unfathomable mine
Of never-failing skill,
He treasures up His bright designs
And works His sovereign will.
You fearful saints, fresh courage take.
The clouds you so much dread
Are big with mercy, and shall break
In blessing on your head.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
