FEBRUARY 21

 

Thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy nameís sake lead me, and guide meóPsa. 31:3.

 

After the Lord has given us certain lessons and experiences, some of which come to us under quiet and restful conditions, the order of procedure may be changed, and the indication of the Lordís providences may lead to some breaking up of conditions which had been both favorable and unfavorable in some respects, leading into new circumstances and conditions. It is not for the true spiritual Israelite to murmur or complain, or even to express a choice; but to look to the Lord for guidance. If he can discern the leadings of Divine providence, even though it be in a wilderness condition more arid and undesirable than that in which he has previously been, he is to follow the Lordís leadings unquestioningly, and with songs of faith and confidence.
