“Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!” Revelation 19:6
God is the Lord of Hosts; He is the great Commander of Heaven and earth. He it is who directs all conflicts in war; no field is pitched, no battle fought — but by His special order and commission, and all for the accomplishment of His glory.
But as those who stand on the same level with two great armies ready to engage conceive them to be a disordered multitude, though if they beheld them from a high hill, they would discern that they were artificially ranged and that everyone served under his own colors. Even so, those who behold the state of the world with the eyes of flesh and blood, dim by reason of the corruption of their judgments and affections, conclude that all things are thrown into confusion. They see “servants riding on horses, and princes going on foot.” They observe that the worse men are, the better they fare; and that they fare the worse, the better they become.
But if they would go into God’s sanctuary and judge of occurrences by heavenly principles, then they would confess that the armies of Heaven, earth, and even Hell are duly marshaled and that, notwithstanding all appearances to the contrary, the God of order will bring light out of darkness and order out of all this seeming confusion. He works all things after the counsel of His own will.
Deep are His counsels and unknown —
But grace and truth support His throne!
Though gloomy clouds His way surround,
Justice is their eternal ground.
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.
