Him therefore I hope to send presently, so soon as I shall see how it will go with me.…
We should —
I. EXPRESS FUTURE PURPOSES WITH A RESIGNATION TO GOD'S WILL AND GUIDANCE (Psalm 21:1).
II. OBSERVE THAT GOD'S PROVIDENCE extends to every particular thing — our incomings, outgoings, journeys, the very hairs of our head. This should teach us —
1. To set on our affairs with looking up to heaven for permission (James 4:13). Let us in all our affairs be holy, and not limit our holiness to coming to church.
2. That we ought Dot to set on anything wherein we cannot expect God's guidance, and so consequently cannot trust in Him for a blessing.
3. To take nothing but that for which we can give God thanks.
(R. Sibbes, D. D.)
