MacDonald: part-time helper?

Monday, September 18, 2017
    Commemoration of George MacDonald, Spiritual Writer, 1905
The LORD watches over you—
    the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—
    he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
    both now and forevermore.
    —Psalm 121:5-8 (NIV)
    People talk about special providences. I believe in the providences, but not in the speciality. I do not believe that God lets the thread of my affairs go for six days, and on the seventh evening takes it up for a moment.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), Annals of a Quiet Neighbourhood, v. I [1867], London: Strahan & Co., 1873, p. 27 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 121:5-8; 27:1; 32:7; Isa. 27:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your care for me is constant.
