Those nations that you are about to dispossess listen to omen readers and diviners, but the Lord your God has not given you permission to do such things.
[Deut 18:14 NET]
What a stepping–stone! We give thanks, often with a tearful, doubtful voice, for our spiritual mercies positive; but what an almost infinite field there is for mercies negative! We cannot even imagine all that God has suffered us not to do, not to be.
