Do not consider thy capacity and merit, but rely upon the infinite bounty and trust to His Highness the Almighty. Do not delay.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v3, p. 564)
Rely upon God. Trust in Him. Praise Him, and call Him continually to mind. He verily turneth trouble into ease, and sorrow into solace, and toil into utter peace. He verily hath dominion over all things.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 320)
They should thus proceed, trusting in God and relying upon Him, so that they may become fitted for the splendors of the effulgences of the Suns (Manifestations) of divine knowledge and wisdom; recipients of the invisible and infinite bounties.
(Bahá’u’lláh, Bahá’í Scriptures, p. 3)
True reliance is for the servant to pursue his profession and calling in this world, to hold fast unto the Lord, to seek naught but His grace, inasmuch as in His Hands is the destiny of all His servants.
(Bahá’u’lláh, Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 155)
Whatever hath befallen you, hath been for the sake of God. This is the truth, and in this there is no doubt. You should, therefore, leave all your affairs in His Hands, place your trust in Him, and rely upon Him. He will assuredly not forsake you. In this, likewise, there is no doubt.
(Bahá’u’lláh, Fire and Light, p. 10)
