Depending on God

If the whole mankind go against you, but God is with you;
The whole mankind will be defeated if God is with you.
I leave my affairs to God, by depending upon Him;
By being pleased with His degree and favour;
By trusting in His promise and by the help of Him,
I display these prominent characteristics of a believer.
When I incorporate these characteristics into my character
I will be at peace concerning my future.
Because I will depend on my Lord for everything
And I will find His care, protection, victory and blessing.
I have no capability to fight against my misfortune
Nor can I fend off the blows of disaster when they strike
Because I was created fragile and weak
When it's the time of difficulty,
With my Lord I place my dependency.
Depend upon your Lord if you want to be sincere,
He will save you from the calamity and disaster.
If you are deep in debt, if you have meagre means
Or if you have any kinds of fears;
Call out: "God alone is sufficient for us
And He is the best disposer of affairs."
Know that 'Sufficient is your Lord as a guide and helper'.
