The good evangelical preacher Octavius Winslow (1808-1878) shared this insightful knowledge:
Let the valuable fact divest your thoughts of all pointless, anxious take care of the current or the long run. Exercising easy religion in God, “don’t be concerned about something” (Philippians 4:6). Study to be content material along with your current lot, with God’s dealings with, and His disposal of, you. You might be simply the place His windfall has, in its inscrutable however all-wise and righteous choice, positioned you. It might be a place painful, irksome, attempting, however it’s proper…Solely purpose to glorify Him in it.
Wherever you might be positioned, God has a piece so that you can do, a function via you to be completed, during which He blends your happiness with His glory…
Dwell a lifetime of every day dependence upon God. It saves from many a desponding feeling, from many a corroding care, from many an anxious thought, from many a sleepless night time.
Father, you’re the God of peace—
