FOR WE ARE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP

THE SECRET OF THE LORD

     The secret (friendship R.V.) of the Lord is with them
     that fear Him.

     Psalms 25:14
The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
    

What is the sign of a friend? That he tells you secret Sorrows? No,
that he tells you secret joys. Many will confide to you their secret
sorrows, but the last mark of intimacy is to confide secret joys.
Have we ever let God tell us any of His joys, or are we telling God
our secrets so continually that we leave no room for Him to talk to
us? At the beginning of our Christian life we are full of requests to
God, then we find that God wants to get us into relationship with
Himself, to get us in touch with His purposes. Are we so wedded to
Jesus Christ's idea of prayer - "Thy will be done" - that we catch
the secrets of God? The things that make God dear to us are not so
much His great big blessings as the tiny things, because they show
His amazing intimacy with us; He knows every detail of our individual
lives.

". . . him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose." At first
we want the consciousness of being guided by God, then as we go on we
live so much in the consciousness of God that we do not need to ask
what His will is, because the thought of choosing any other will
never occur to us. If we are saved and sanctified God guides us by
our ordinary choices, and if we are going to choose what He does not
want, He will check, and we must heed. Whenever there is doubt, Stop
at once. Never reason it out and say - "I wonder why I shouldn't?"
God instructs us in what we choose, that is, He guides our common
sense, and we no longer hinder His Spirit by continually saying -
"Now, Lord, what is Thy will?"
