Today’s thought – Obedience

Good Morning

Jeremiah 7:23
Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people:
and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you,
that it may be well unto you.

Pray Him to give you what Scripture calls
“an honest and good heart,”
or “a perfect heart;”
and, without waiting,
begin at once to obey Him
with the best heart you have.
Any obedience is better than none.
You have to seek His face;
obedience is the only way of seeing Him.
All your duties are obediences.
To do what He bids is to obey Him,
and to obey Him is to approach Him.
Every act of obedience is an approach–
an approach to Him
who is not far off,
though He seems so,
but close behind this visible screen of things
which hides Him from us.
J. H. NEWMAN.

Approach God . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
