"That which they have need of ... let it be given them day by day without fail." ... Ezra 6:9

If we really trust God, we shall bear the burden both of our own needs and of the work of God, unaided. We must not secretly hope for support from some human source. Our faith is not to be in God plus man, but in God alone. If brethren show their love, praise and thank God, but if they do not, let us still thank Him. For God's servant to have one e...

United in the child of God are two contrasting characters. Above ground as it were, is the simple unsophisticated life of trust and faith represented by the lily which is of God's planting.This is what others see.
