An important rule: “Commit your deeds to God, and your thoughts shall be established.” (Proverbs 16:3) That is, you must realize that whatever happens is from [God], blessed be He. 1

See to it that you request from God always to visit upon you that which God knows to be for your benefit, as opposed to that which appears to be so to the human mind. 2 For it is quite possible that what is good in your own eyes is really bad for you. Thus commit unto God everything, all your concerns and needs.
