Christian, "Thy maker is they husband." Is that not sufficient reason for you to cast yourself upon Him? Does not the child trust his father, and the wife commit herself to her husband?
You have already trusted God with a far greater matter that your estates, liberties, or lives. You have committed your souls to Him. Will we commit the jewel and not the cabinet? Will we trust Him for heaven and not for earth? You have always found Him to be faithful in whatever you have entrusted to Him. All your experiences are good grounds of confidence. Well then, resolve to trust God in everything. Leave the disposal of everything to Him. He has been with you in every strait, want, and fear. He has helped you, and will He not do so now? Trust in God's wisdom, power, and love, and lean not on your own understanding."
The fruit of such submission is peace.
"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
