“I laid me down and slept … for the Lord sustained me” (Psalm 3:5).
How emphatic and simple! Is it so with you reader? Do times of trouble find your heart so resting on God as your Father that your spirit is at rest and your sleep is sweet as if all was peace around you, because you know God is in control of all things?
The secret of peace is to be occupied with Him for His own sake. When trouble comes, we shall find peace in Him and through Him, knowing that His tender care is always with us. —J.N. Darby
