Rescued and Guided
Rest knowing all is so safe in My Hands. Rest is Trust. Ceaseless activity is distrust. Without the knowledge that I am working for you, you do not rest. Inaction then would be the outcome of despair.
My Hand is not shortened that it cannot save. Know that, repeat it, rely on it, welcome the knowledge, delight in it. Such a truth is a hope flung to a drowning man. Every repetition of it is one pull nearer shore and safety.
Let that illustration teach you a great truth. Lay hold of the truth, pray it, affirm it, hold on to the rope. How foolish are your attempts to save yourself, one hand on the rope, and one making efforts to swim ashore! You may relinquish your hold of the rope and hinder the rescuer - who has to act with the greater caution lest he lose you.
The storms and tempests are not all of life. The Psalmist who said "All thy waves and thy billows are gone over me" wrote also "He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings."
Meditate upon that wonder - truth, the three steps safety, security, guidance. (1) "He brought me up also out of an horrible pit" - Safety. (2) "He set my feet upon a rock" - Security (3) "He established my goings" - Guidance. No. 3 is the final stage when the saved soul trusts Me so entirely it seeks no more its own way but leaves all future plans to Me its Rescuer.
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. Deuteronomy 33:27

The Ordered Life
You cannot be doing My work well and wielding a worthy influence unless all your life is ordered.
Let that be your aim and your achievement.
Secure this order and you will be able to do so much more in My service, and, without haste or unrest, reflect more the order and beauty of My Kingdom.
You need this discipline in your life.
Peace is the result of an ordered life lived with Me.
Prepare yourself for each task, for each occasion. Pray for those you will contact, your time with them.
This will save discord, and will enable the work and planning, in which you cooperate with them, to be fruitful for good.
