Ecclesiastes 3:14, I know that whatsoever God doeth is forever.  Nothing can be put to it. 

"My sheep hear My voice."  They know not the voice of a hireling.  The true shepherd puts his life between the sheep and danger.  The hireling puts the sheep between him and danger. 

We can’t see the wind work, but we can see the effect.  The night I decided, I was alone at the meeting and when I went home was sleeping with my brother.  I didn’t tell him.  I had yielded to God until morning, and he said, “I knew it last night.”  I asked him how he knew and he said, “By the look on your face.  That worried look has gone.” 

Give a portion to seven also to eight. 

First thing we long to do is to tell someone else of our joy. 

Verse 4, winds of circumstances do not move us.  It is not by might, nor by power, but by the will of God. 

Verses 9 and 10, there is an afterwards to everything.
