DECEMBER 16

 

 How long halt ye between two opinions?

If the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal follow himó

1. Kings 18:21.

 

  We need to have same touchstone, as it were, some matter which will help us to decide, which will enable the mind to reach a decision quickly. This touchstone should be Godís will; so that to perceive the Lordís will in respect to any question would be to settle it as quickly as discerned.... Ability to decide quickly, and to decide always on the right side, what the Lordís will is, requires some experience and discipline; but the sooner we begin the sooner we shall become proficient. The more energetically we set ourselves to know the Lordís will and to do it, and to show Him by our promptness that we delight to do His will, the better and the more quickly shall we find our characters established on proper lines.
