"...Perhaps God sees it better for thee to live in continual dependence upon Him, and not to know what thy condition shall be on the morrow, than for thee to have a more settled condition in respect of the comforts of the creature; do but remember that we spoke of before, that Christ doth not teach you to pray, Lord give me enough that will serve me for two or three years, but, this day our daily bread; to teach us we must live upon God in a dependent condition every day for daily bread."
