If we would only drop all the needless things and simply do the things that absolutely require our attention from morning till night, we would find what a small slender thread life is. But we string upon it a thousand imaginary beads and burden ourselves with unnecessary cares.
If we had trusted the Lord, 'more' would never have needed to preoccupy us. Wise was the testimony of the old saint who said, in review of her past life, "I have had a great many troubles in my life, especially those that never came.
Trust and rest with heart abiding, Like a birdling in its nest, underneath His feathers hiding, trusting and resting. Trust and rest, trust and rest, God is working for the best. Post your guard day and night to meet any threat to God's promise.
Nehemiah 4: 8 -9
They all plotted together to come and fight against Jerusalem and stir up trouble against it. But we prayed to our God and posted a guard day and night to meet this threat.
