Walk in My Way and trust Me. No evil can touch you. I am yours as truly as you are Mine. Rest in that truth.
Rest, that is, cease all struggle. Gain a calm, strong confidence in that certainty. Do not only rest in Me when the world’s struggles prove too much and too many for you to bear or face alone. Rest in Me when you need perfect understanding, when you need the consciousness of tender, loving friendship and intercourse.
The world, my poor world, flies to Me when its difficulties are too great to be surmounted any other way, forgetting, or never realizing, that if, with the same eagerness, those hearts sought Me merely for companionship and loving intercourse, many of the difficulties would not arise.
The circumstances, the life, the character would be so altered – so purified, that those same difficulties would not exist.
Seek Me early, that is the way to find Me. Early, before I get crowded out by life’s troubles, and difficulties and pleasures.
But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely,
and shall be quiet from fear of evil. Proverbs 1:33
