Morning and Evening

For the evening of September 1st
by Charles H. Spurgeon

"Trust in Him at all times." --Psalm 62:8

Faith is as much the rule of temporal as of spiritual life;we ought to have faith in God for our earthly affairs as well asfor our heavenly business. It is only as we learn to trust inGod for the supply of all our daily need that we shall liveabove the world. We are not to be idle, that would show we didnot trust in God, who worketh hitherto, but in the devil, whois the father of idleness. We are not to be imprudent or rash;that were to trust chance, and not the living God, who is a Godof economy and order. Acting in all prudence and uprightness, weare to rely simply and entirely upon the Lord at all times.

Let me commend to you a life of trust in God in temporal things. Trusting in God, you will not be compelled to mournbecause you have used sinful means to grow rich. Serve God withintegrity, and if you achieve no success, at least no sin willlie upon your conscience. Trusting God, you will not be guiltyof self-contradiction. He who trusts in craft, sails this wayto-day, and that way the next, like a vessel tossed about by thefickle wind; but he that trusteth in the Lord is like a vesselpropelled by steam, she cuts through the waves, defies the wind,and makes one bright silvery straightforward track to herdestined haven. Be you a man with living principles within;never bow to the varying customs of worldly wisdom. Walk in yourpath of integrity with steadfast steps, and show that you areinvincibly strong in the strength which confidence in God alonecan confer. Thus you will be delivered from carking care, youwill not be troubled with evil tidings, your heart will befixed, trusting in the Lord. How pleasant to float along thestream of providence! There is no more blessed way of livingthan a life of dependence upon a covenant-keeping God. We haveno care, for He careth for us; we have no troubles, because wecast our burdens upon the Lord.
