On whatsoever errand I shall send thee thou shah go; and whatsoever I shall command thee thou shalt speak.
Jer. i. 7 (R. V. margin).
There is no change of time and place with Thee;
Where’er I go, ‘t is still with me the same;
Within Thy presence I rejoice to be,
And always hallow Thy most holy name.
BE assured of this, you do not know God in truth, and have no true peace, if you are depending upon- times and places. Remember that whatever God gives you to do, from moment to moment, that is the very best thing you could possibly be doing, and you little know where and when the Lord will meet you. He who does not seek and find God everywhere, and in everything, finds Him nowhere and in nothing. And He who is not at the Lord’s service in everything, is at His service in nothing.
God must be sought and seen in His providences; it is not our actions in themselves considered which please Him, but the spirit in which they are done, more especially the constant ready obedience to every discovery of His will, even in the minutest things, and with such a suppleness and flexibility of mind as not to adhere to anything, but to turn and move in any direction where He shall call.
