This lesson begins a study through Thomas Boston’s “The Crook in the Lot” which is a study on the sovereignty and wisdom of God displayed in the afflictions of men. In this lesson we learn that the only way to behave Christianly under our affliction is to see that God has brought it and that we cannot change it. This view, which is attained only by faith, will help us to submit willingly under the rod and trust God for His wise care.
