July 2 – Daily Strength for Daily Needs
_Herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men_.–ACTS xxiv. 16.
_I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye_.–PS. xxxii. 8.
Oh, keep thy conscience sensitive; No inward token miss; And go where grace entices thee;– Perfection lies in this.
F. W. FABER.
We need only obey. There is guidance for each of us, and by lowly listening we shall hear the right word.
R. W. EMERSON.
The heights of Christian perfection can only be reached by faithfully each moment following the Guide who is to lead you there, and He reveals your way to you one step at a time, in the little things of your daily lives, asking only on your part that you yield yourselves up to His guidance. If then, in anything you feel doubtful or troubled, be sure that it is the voice of your Lord, and surrender it at once to His bidding, rejoicing with a great joy that He has begun thus to lead and guide you.
H. W. SMITH.
