Jottings — A Calm Dependence Upon God

On 1 Timothy 3:14-15 “With all the spiritual gifts with which he was endowed, Paul could order his steps only in the light of the Lord’s guidance and by a glad subjection to His will. Our future on earth is kindly veiled from our eyes. This brings faith into exercise and that calm dependence upon God which frees the soul from anxiety; we know that guidance will be given for each occasion when we are walking in the fear of God and finding our resources in Him and not in ourselves. How fully, too, the apostle’s aim was directed toward the welfare of the churches and the furthering of the interests of God’s kingdom.”
