June 11 – Simple Obedience
Dear Lord, teach me to obey Thee in all things.
You are Mine, pledged to serve Me.
Every want of yours has been anticipated. Look back and see how each failure has been due to your not having obeyed implicitly the instructions I gave you in preparation for that task or trial.
Listening to My Voice implies obedience. I am a tender Lord of Love, but I am a Captain with whose words there must be no trifling.
You are a volunteer, not conscript, but if you expect the privileges of My Service you must render Me the obedience of that service.
The way of obedience may seem hard and dreary, but the security of My ordered life the untrained soul can never know. March in step with your Captain.
