I think the essence of this idea is represented in the Scripture where Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, "But seek you first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33 If I am more concerned with doing something for the Kingdom of God, I won't have to worry about what happens to me. This reminds me of the Apostle Peter asleep in prison, the night before he was to be executed. He was not concerned about what was going to happen to him at all. He had been busy about the work of the ministry. When things went South, as they sometimes do, he went to sleep. So, God interceded on his behalf. The Bible doesn't record that Peter did anything about his situation, but sleep.
Good night. I'm going to sleep myself. :)
