“If we are saved and sanctified, God guides us by our everyday choices. And if we are about to choose what He doesn’t want, He will give us a sense of doubt or restraint, which we must heed.

I once met a poor women who earned a meager living through hard domestic labor but was a joyful, triumphant Christian. Another Christian lady, who was quite sullen, said to her one day, “Nancy I understand your happiness today, but I would think your future prospects would be sober to you. Suppose, for instance, you experience a time of illness and are unable to work. Or suppose your present employers move away, and you cannot find work elsewhere. Or Suppose- “Stop!” cried Nancy. “I never suppose.” “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want” (Psalm 23:1). And besides, she added to her gloomy friend, “it’s all that supposing that’s making you so miserable. You’d better give that up and simply trust the Lord.”
