Happy are those who trust the Lord, who do not turn to idols or join those who worship false gods. Ps. 40: 4
First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, requests, and thanksgiving be offered to God for all people; for kings and all others who are in authority, that we may live a quiet and peaceful life with all reverence toward God and with proper conduct. This is good and it pleases God our Saviour. 1Timothy 2: 1 – 3.
Just to let your Father do what He will; just to know that He is true, and be still; just to trust Him, this is all! Then the day will surely be peaceful, whatsoever befall, bright and blessed, calm and free. F.R.Havergall
Every morning compose your soul for a tranquil day, and all through it be careful often to recall your resolution, and bring yourself back to it, so to say. If something discomposed you, do not be upset, or troubled; but having discovered the fact, humble yourself gently before God, and try to bring your mind into a quiet attitude. Say to yourself, ‘Well, I have made a false step; now I must go more carefully watch-fully.’ Do this each time, however frequently you fall. When you are at peace use it profitably, making constant acts of meekness, and seeking to be calm even in the most trifling things. Above all, do not be discouraged; be patient; wait; strive to attain a calm, gentle spirit. Francis De Sales.
WHAT doth The Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear The Lord thy God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve The Lord thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul? –Deut. 10: 12
GIVE UP yourself to God without reserve; in singleness of heart, meeting everything that everyday brings forth, as something comes from God, and is to be received and gone through by you, in such an heavenly use of it, as you would suppose the holy Jesus would have done, in such occurrences. This is an attainable degree of perfection. WM. LAW.
We ought to measure our actual lot, and to fulfill it; to be with all our strength that which our lot requires and allows. What is beyond it, is no calling of ours. How much peace, quiet, confidence, and strength, would people attain, if they would go by this plain rule. H. E. Manning.
The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek Him. Ezra 8: 22
Into Thy hand I commit my spirit.–PS. 31: 5
BE still and cool in thy own mind and spirit from thy own thoughts, and then you will feel the principle of God, to turn yourmind to The Lord God, from whom life comes; whereby you may receive His strength, and power to allay all blustering storms and tempests. That is it which works up into patience, into innocency, into soberness, into stillness, into stayedness, into quietness, up to God with His power. … Therefore be still awhile from your own thoughts, searching, seeking, desires and imaginations, and be stayed in the principle of God in you, that it may raise your mind up to God, and stay it upon God; and you will find strength from Him, and find Him to be a God at hand, a present help in the time of trouble and need. George Fox
