What a serene and quiet life might you lead if you would leave providing to the God of providence! With a little oil in the jar and a handful of meal in the barrel, Elijah outlived the famine and you will do the same. If God cares for you, why need you care, too? Can you trust Him for your soul and not for your body? He has never refused to bear your burdens. He has never fainted under their weight. Come, then, soul, have done with fretful care and leave all your concerns in the hands of a gracious God. – Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892), from a meditation on 1 Peter 5.7.
