Let us not dictate to God

"Let us not dictate to God. Many a blessing has been lost by Christians not believing it to be a blessing, because it did not come in the particular shape which they had conceived to be proper and right. To some the divine work is nothing, unless it assumes the form which their prejudice has selected."

Jeremiah Lanphier, Alone with Jesus: Gleanings for Closet Reading, page 88.

"You did awesome things that we did not expect." Isaiah 64:3
