This is God’s manner—to take devious and desolate paths. These are all paths of faith; and faith does not follow the dictates of reason and the senses, but stands by calmly and permits God to take the lead. Faith neither knows nor wants to know whither, how far, how long, or through what. When God reigns in us through faith, when we unconcernedly follow Him, when we let Him hover over us and lead us, He is traveling in Araboth. And an this is the work of the Gospel.
