179 Whatever God Does Is for Man
1. All men’s destinies are in God’s hand. You cannot control, cannot control yourself. Even if man is always running about and busy for himself, he cannot control, cannot control himself. If you could touch your future and control your destiny, would you be called a created being? Oh, would you be called a created being? Whatever God does is for man, just as the heavens and the earth and all things created by God are for serving man. He created the moon, the sun, and oh the stars for mankind, created animals and plants for man, made spring, summer, autumn, and winter for man, and so on. He did all these for man’s existence, for man’s existence.
2. So, no matter how God chastises and judges man, it is for, for saving man thoroughly. Even if he deprives man of his fleshly hope, oh, it is still for, it is still for purifying man. And purifying man is for man’s existence. All men’s destinations are in the hand of the Creator. How could men control themselves? How could men control themselves?
