Grou: nothing but trust

Saturday, November 5, 2022
    Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
    —1 Peter 5:7 (NIV)
    Self-rule will probably err. Moreover, those who choose their own path must be responsible for the consequences thereof, however serious; whereas when God rules, we need nothing save patient trust. He loves us far more than we can love ourselves, and He watches over us with more than a Father’s love. Trust in Him, and it is impossible for devil or man to hinder His grace.
    ... Jean Nicolas Grou (1731-1803), The Hidden Life of the Soul, London: Rivingtons, 1870, p. 1 (see the book)
    See also 1 Pet. 5:7; Ps. 52:7-8; 119:41-42; Nah. 1:7; 2 Cor. 1:9; 10:3-4; Jas. 2:12-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to trust You more deeply.
