When I am calm enough, as in calm enough to lie down and sleep, those are the times I need God’s salvation or help the most. Those are the times I come to the realization of just how much I mess up.
God makes room for me, He has set me apart for Himself – or at least I feel that He treats me marvelously and substantially and because of His kindness He hears me. So I take the opportunity when I’m called on matters where I have sinned, to ask God not to be angry. I do not need to be prosperous, I need His mercy. Safety with Him is far better than security in retirement.
