Strength For Daily Needs

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow.

[Matt 6:28 WEB]

They do not toil:

Content with their allotted task

They do but grow; they do not ask

A richer lot, a higher sphere,

But in their loveliness appear,

And grow, and smile, and do their best,

And unto God they leave the rest.

Interpose no barrier to His mighty life-giving power, working in you all the good pleasure of His will. Yield yourself up utterly to His sweet control. Put your growing into His hands as completely as you have put all your other affairs. Suffer Him to manage it as He will. Do not concern yourself about it, nor even think of it. Trust Him absolutely and always. Accept each moment’s dispensation as it comes to you from His dear hands, as being the needed sunshine or dew for that moment’s growth. Say a continual “yes” to your Father’s will.

~ H. W. SMITH ~

Thine own self-will and anxiety, thy hurry and labor, disturb thy peace, and prevent Me from working in thee. Look at the little flowers, in the serene summer days; they quietly open their petals, and the sun shines into them with his gentle influences. So will I do for thee, if thou wilt yield thyself to Me.
