Proverbs 3: 16 “For the Lord shall be thy confidence.”

H. E. Manning wrote, “He has kept and folded us from ten thousand ills when we did not know it; in the midst of our security we should have perished every hour, but that He sheltered us, ‘from the terror by night and from the arrow that flieth by day…’ from the powers of evil that walk in darkness, from the snares of our own evil will. He has kept us even against ourselves, and saved us even from our own undoing. Let us read the traces of His hand in all our ways, in all events, the chances, the changes of this troubles state. It is He that folds and feeds us, that makes us to go in and out…, to be faint, or to find pasture…’ to lie down by the still waters, or to walk by the way that is parched and desert.”


As I read the quote above, I thought, my gracious, God is continually taking care of us. There are so many times that we are worrying about things that really do not, or should not matter, because if we are God’s children, He is always watching over us and taking care of us.

Just think about it, God is protecting us from so many unseen things that we do not even know about. He takes care of the problem for us, when we did not even know or realized that there was a problem or need in our life at that moment.

I thank God that He does take care of the unseen or unknown things in my life. The things that are not bought to my attention.

So, if He can take care of the unknown things, then I am assured that He will take care of the requests and needs of my life that I know about and I lift them up in prayer to Him.

Psalm 91
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you make the Most High your dwelling- even the LORD, who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
