Joy and Strength 06/19

That which I see not teach Thou me: if I have done iniquity, I will do it no more.
Job xxxiv. 32.

He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths.
Isa. ii. 3.

Yes, take my heart, and in it rule,
Direct it as it pleaseth Thee;
I will be silent in Thy school.
And learn whatever Thou teachest me.
Gerhard Tersteegen

PEOPLE cannot become perfect by dint of hearing or reading about perfection. The chief thing is not to listen to yourself, but silently to listen to God. Talk little and do much, without caring to be seen. God will teach you more than all the most experienced persons or the most spiritual books can do. You already know a great deal more than you practise. You do not need the acquirement of fresh knowledge half so much as to put in practice that which you already possess.
Francois de la Mothe Fenelon.

To speak with the tongues of men or angels on religious matters, is a much less thing than to know how to stay the mind upon God, and abide with Him in the closet of our hearts, observing, loving, adoring, and obeying His holy power within us.
William Law

Verse of the Day

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it. — 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NKJV)
