FEBRUARY 28

 

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and

supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto Godó

Phil. 4:6.

 

The question may arise, Why will not God give us the things which He sees us to need without our  making  petition to Him and claiming His promises? Undoubtedly because we need previously to come into the proper attitude of heart to receive His favors and to be advantaged by them. Even as it is, we may be sure that we do not sufficiently appreciate the Divine care bestowed upon us hitherto and now. Even in the attitude of prayer and thanksgiving we probably do not discern one-half of our causes for gratitude, as we shall see them by and by, when we shall know even as we are known.
