"Let us believe in God's perfect, absolute, daily control of the events of our lives. It is a difficult matter to accept if we are not religiously minded, if we have become sophisticated with doubt..."
He goes on to speak in contrast of how God acts in our lives when we submit to his will instead of our own:
"What do you know of the difficulties you might have had to encounter? What can you foresee of the entanglements in which you might have found yourself before long."
