SIMPLY RESTING IN HIM


My times are in Your hand! Psalm 31:15

Firmly believing that my times are in God's hand, I here submit myself and all my affairs for the ensuing year, to the wise and gracious disposal of God's divine providence.

Whether God appoints for me . . . .
  • health or sickness
  • peace or trouble
  • comforts or crosses
  • life or death

... may His holy will be done!

All my time, strength, and service, I devote to the honor of the Lord Jesus ... and even my common actions. It is my earnest expectation, hope, and desire, my constant aim and endeavor that Jesus Christ may be magnified in me.

In everything I have to do, my entire dependence is upon Jesus Christ for strength. And whatever I do in word or deed, I desire to do all in His name, to make Him my Alpha and Omega. I have all from Him and I would use all for Him.

Matthew Henry

  2. This is a wonderful prayer and verse to remind me, as Paul wrote: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me...in good times and hard times. Thank you so much for your posts.
