Joy and Strength 02/13

Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit.
I Peter i. 22.

Thy wonderful grand will, my God!
Triumphantly I make it mine;
And faith shall breathe her glad “Amen”
To every dear command of Thine.
Jean Sophia Pigott.

You little think how much the life of all your graces depends upon your ready and cordial obedience to the Spirit. When the Spirit urgeth thee to secret prayer, and thou refusest obedience; when He forbids thee a known transgression, and yet thou wilt go on; when He telleth thee which is the way, and which not, and thou wilt not regard, —no wonder if heaven and thy soul be strange.
Richard Baxter.

Whatever the particular call is, the particular sacrifice God asks you to make, the particular cross He wishes you to embrace, whatever the particular path He wants you to tread, will you rise up, and say in your heart, “Yes, Lord, I accept it; I submit, I yield, I pledge myself to walk in that path, and to follow that Voice, and to trust Thee with the consequences”? Oh! but you say,” I don’t know what He will want next.” No, we none of us know that, but we know we shall be safe in His hands.
Catherine Booth.
