Grow daily, ever more and more, into My likeness.
Do My Will as revealed to you, and leave the result to Me.
If you are but My representative, then why concern yourself as to whether the action I have arranged for you is wise or not?
If your control of the mind and body is not as progressive as that of your spirit, it is a hindrance.
See to this. The three must work in unison; otherwise disharmony.
Beautiful though one instrument may be in an orchestra, with a beauty beyond that of any other, yet should it play its part ahead of those others, disharmony results; and so with you a sense of frustration and failure follows disharmony within.
Your Order of Merit
Grace is the distinctive mark I set upon My friends.
It is no order of merit. It is the result of living with Me.
It is even unobserved by those on whom I bestow it, but to those they meet who have eyes to see, it is apparent, just as during My time on earth it was said, “They took knowledge of them that they had been with Jesus.”
It may be the sign of My sustaining Power within a life.
It may be the quiet strength of poise, the mark of self-conquest, some faint reflection of My character, or a mystic scent of the soul unfolding to My Love.
More Doors Will Open
Go on in faith and trust.
The Way opens as you go.
In the Christian Life doors swing open as you come to them, if so be that you have advanced to them along the straight path of obedience.
As you started your journey, what would it have profited had you worried about the closed door ahead?
In the Spirit-Life miracle-working Power operates through natural human channels.
As you have seen.
So this is the continuing lesson: Go steadily foreword in firm trust along the path of the quiet obedience.
That is your work.
Mine to cause the doors to swing open, as you come to them, not before.
How often have I opened those doors for you in the past?
More will open. So trust, so hope, so love.
Your Heart is Fixed
Still go forward unafraid.
The way will open as you go.
It is fear that blocks My way for you. Have no fear. Know that all is well.
No circumstances, no outward changes, can harm you in any way.
Each should prove a step of progress, as long as your hearts are fixed “trusting in the Lord.”
I know no change.
