I will praise the Lord who counsels me —even at night my conscience instructs me. I keep the Lord in mind always. Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
— Psalm 16:7,8, HCSB
If the Lord in his providence has placed important responsibilities upon you, he will fit you to bear these burdens, if you go to him in faith for strength to do this.
Satan exults when men look to and trust in man. The one who is the object of this undue confidence is exposed to strong temptations. Satan will, if possible, lead him to self-confidence, in order that human defects may mar the work.
If the officers...bear successfully the burdens laid upon them, they must pray, they must believe, they must trust God to use them as his agents... Pray and labor, labor and pray; as pupils in the school of Christ, learn of Jesus.
The Lord has given us the promise, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” [James 1:5.] It is in the order of God that those who bear responsibilities should often meet together to counsel with one another and to pray earnestly for that wisdom which he alone can impart.
Unitedly make known your troubles to God. Talk less; much precious time is lost in talk that brings no light. Let brethren unite in fasting and prayer for the wisdom that God has promised to supply liberally.
Every one needs a practical experience in trusting God for himself... open the heart to God; tell him every secret of the soul. Bring to him your difficulties, small and great, and he will show you a way out of them all. He alone can know how to give the very help you need.
And when, after a trying season, help comes to you, when the Spirit of God is manifestly at work for you, what a precious experience you have gained.
— Gospel Workers 1892, p.235-238
