The world has always seen service for Me to be activity. Only those near to Me have seen that a life apart, of prayer, may, and does so often, accomplish more than all the service man can offer Me.
If man lived apart with Me and only went out to serve at My direct command, My spirit could operate more and accomplish truly mighty things."And it came to pass, that, as He was praying in a certain
place … His disciples said unto Him,
Lord, teach us to pray."
- Luke 11:1

NEARER TO THEE
“Lord, show Me Thyself,” is a cry that never goes unanswered.
Not often to physical vision comes the awareness but to spiritual insight, as more and more you realize My Love, My Power, and the manifold wonders of My character — its humility, its Majesty, its tenderness, its sternness, justice, mercy, healing, and consuming fire.Draw nigh to Me and I will draw nigh to you.

THE SUCCESS YOU COVET
Follow the path of obedience. It leads to the Throne of God. Your treasure, be it success necessary on the material plane, which will further the work of My Kingdom, or the hidden spiritual wonders revealed by Me to those only who diligently seek, this treasure lies at the end of the track.
From one point (a promise of Mine or a Command) to the next, you have to follow, till finally you reach the success you covet.
All your work for the moment is in the material plane and the spiritual is only to help the material. When your material goal is reached then the material will serve only to attain the spiritual."For your obedience is come abroad unto all men."
- Romans 16:19

MY HEALING POWER
When life is difficult then relax completely; sleep or rest in conscious reliance on My Healing Power.
Endeavor that others may never see you anything but rested, strong, happy, joyful.
Before you meet seek renewal in My Secret Place.
Your tears and cares must be shared with Me alone.
My blessing be upon you.

Wait to hear My Will and then obey. At all costs obey.
Do not fear. I am a wall of protection around you. See this. To see this with the eyes of faith is to cause it to manifest in the material.
Remember I long to work miracles, as when on earth I wrought them, but the same condition holds good. I cannot do many mighty works because of unbelief.
So only in response to your belief can I do miracle-works now."There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling."
- Psalm 91:10

Drink of the water that I shall give you, and you shall never thirst.
I will lead you beside the waters of comfort.
I will give unto you living water.
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness.
As the hart panteth after the water brooks so longeth my soul after Thee, O God.
This is the thirst that can never go unsatisfied.

SEE AS I SEEO Lord, we praise Thee. Bless us, we beseech Thee.
I bless you. I promise you release. Joy in Me. You shall be shielded from the storm.
Wonders have unfolded. Just to come before Me and stay for a while in My Presence – this must strengthen and help you.
Learn of Me. The only way for so many in My poor world to keep calm, sane, is to have the mind which is in Jesus Christ. The mind which is in Me.
That mind you can never obtain by reasoning, or by reading, but only by living with Me and sharing My Life.
Think much of Me. Speak much of Me. See others as I see them. Let nothing less satisfy you."Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly
in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke
is easy, and My burden is light."
- Matthew 11:29-30
Appeal to Me often. Do not implore so much as claim My Help as your right.
It is yours in Friendship’s name. Claim it with a mighty, impelling insistence. It is yours.
Not so much Mine to give you, as yours; but yours because it is included in the Great Gift of Myself that I gave you.
An All-embracing Gift, a Wonder Gift. Claim, accept, use it. All is well.

YOUR RED SEA
Go forward fearlessly.
Do not think about the Red Sea that lies ahead.
Be very sure that when you come to it the waters will part and you will pass over to your promised land of freedom."The wicked flee when no man pursueth; but the righteous are bold as a lion."
- Proverbs 28:1

RIGHT OF ENTRY
Dwell with Me, and in doing so you admit those you love to the right of entry.
If their thoughts follow you as human friend and helper, they are drawn in thought, and later in love and longing, to Me with whom you live.

WHEN GUIDANCE TARRIES
As I prompt you – act. When you have no clear guidance, then go forward quietly along the path of duty I have set before you.
No fear, no panic, quietly doing your daily duty.
This attitude of faith will receive its reward, as surely as the acting upon My direct Guidance.
Rejoice in the sense of security that is yours."Thou shalt guide me with Thy counsel, and
afterward receive me to glory."
- Psalm 73:24

ZEST IN SERVICE
Your will, your desire, must be to do My Will, wanting It, loving It, as a child hugging some treasure to its heart. So treasure My Will.
Find your delight in It. “Lord, what wouldst Thou have me to do?” is no question of a sullen servant. It is the eager appeal of a friend, who views all life as a glorious adventure, with the enthusiasm of a youth permitted to share an explorer’s quest.
Bring the unquenchable Zest into all you do.

I am your Friend. The Companion of the dreary ways of life.
I rob those ways of their grayness and horror. I transform them. Even in earthly friendships the common way, the weary way, the steep way, may seem a way to Heaven if the presence of some loved human friend transforms them.
Let the Sabbath calm enwrap your minds and hearts. Let it be a rest from the worry and fret of life, a halt by the busy highway when you seek some rest and shade.
Have you ever realized the wonder of the friendship you can have with Me? Have you ever thought what it means to be able to summon at will the God of the World?
Even with a privileged visitor to an earthly king there is the palace antechamber, and the time must be at the pleasure of the king.
But to My subjects I have given the right to enter My Presence when they will, nay more they can summon Me to bedside, to workshop – and I am there.
Could Divine Love do more? Your nearest earthly friend cannot be with you on the instant. Your Lord, your Master, your Divine Friend — Yes
When men seek to worship Me they think of the worlds I rule over, of creation, of mighty law and order – and then they feel the awe that precedes worship.
To you I say feel awe, feel the desire to worship Me in wondering amazement. But think too of the mighty, tender, humble condescension of My Friendship. Think of Me in the little things of everyday life."For who hath despised the day of small things?"
- Zechariah 4:10

LADDER OF JOY
You see in your lives cause for praise or prayer. You praise or pray. Your heart is lifted thereby into the Eternal, into My very Presence.
Thereafter the drudgery or commonplace or dreary waiting ceases to be the colorless something to be endured. It is the ladder, whereby you rise to Me.
You can then smile at it, welcome it. It is friend, not foe. So with everything in life. Its value for you must depend on whether it leads you nearer to Me.
So poverty or plenty, sickness or health, friendship or loneliness, sunshine or gloom, each may add to the Joy and Beauty of your lives.

DO NOT RUSH
Learn in the little daily things of life to delay action until you get My Guidance …
So many lives lack poise. For in the momentous decisions and the big things of life, they ask My help but into the small things they rush alone.
By what you do in the small things those around you are most often antagonized or attracted."They soon forget His works; they waited not for His counsel."
- Psalm 106:13

Life has its furnace for My children, into which they are plunged for the molding.
At their request, I watch and watch until I can see them reflect My Glory. Then comes the further shaping into My Likeness. But the metal from which that Likeness is fashioned must be indeed pure.
So often My children are impatient for the molding, never thinking that the refining must come first.
To do My work there must be much refining.

MY WILL - YOUR JOY
Our Lord and our God. Lead us, we beseech Thee. Lead us and keep us.
You can never go beyond My Love and Care. Remember that. No evil can befall you. Circumstances I bless and use must be the right ones for you.
But I know always that the first step is to lay your will before Me as an offering, ready that I shall do what is best, sure that, if you trust Me, what I do for you will be best.
Your second step is to be sure, and to tell me so, that I am Powerful enough to do everything (“The hearts of kings are in My rule and governance”), that no miracle is impossible with me (“With God all things are possible” and “I and My Father are one”).
Then leave all with Me. Glad to leave all your affairs in a Master Hand. Sure of safety and protection. Remember you cannot see the future. I can.
You could not bear it. So only little by little can I reveal it to you. Accept My Will and it will bring you joy."The Lord is thy keeper; the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand."
- Psalm 121:5

Every man is your brother, every woman your sister, every child your child. You are to know no difference of race, color, or creed. One is your Father and all ye are brethren.
This is the Unity I came to teach — Man united with God and His great family. Not man alone, seeking a oneness with God alone. See God the Father with His great world family, and, as you seek union with Him, it must mean for you attachment to His family, His other children.
He acknowledges all as His children, not all acknowledge Him as their Father.

Learn daily the sublime lesson of trust and calm in the midst of storm. Whatever of sorrow or difficulty the day may bring My tender command to you is still the same - Love and Laugh.
Love and Laughter, not a sorrowful resignation, mark real acceptances of My Will. Leave every soul the braver and happier for having met you. For children or youth, middle or old age, for sorrow, for sin, for all you may encounter in others, this should be your attitude. Love and Laugh.
Do not fear. Remember how I faced the devil in the wilderness, and how I conquered with “the sword of the spirit which is the word of God.” You too have your quick answer for every fear that evil may present - an answer of faith and confidence in Me. Where possible say it aloud.
The spoken word has power. Look on every fear, not as a weakness on your part due to illness or worry, but as a very real temptation to be attacked and overthrown.

OUT OF THE UNSEEN“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
You do not yet see, nor will you see fully while you are on this earth, how faith, co-operating with Spiritual Power, actually calls into being that for which you hope.
Men speak of dreams come true. But you know them as answered prayers; manifestations of Spirit Force in the Unseen. So trust boundlessly.

THE CHILD SPIRIT
Does the way seem a stony one? Not one stone can impede your progress. Courage. Face the future, but face it only with a brave and happy heart. Do not seek to see it. You are robbing Faith of her sublime sweetness if you do this. Just know that all is well and that Faith, not seeing, but believing, is the barque that will bear you to safety, over the stormy waters. “According to your faith be it unto you” was My injunction to those who sought healing of Me. If for wonder-working, if for healing, if for salvation faith was so necessary then the reason is clear why I urged that all who sought entrance to My Kingdom must become as little children. Faith is the child-attitude. Seek in every way to become child-like. Seek, seek, seek until you find, until the years have added to your nature that of the trusting child. Not only for its simple trust must you copy the child-spirit, but for its joy in life, its ready laughter, its lack of criticism, its desire to share all with all men. Ask much that you may become as little children, friendly and loving towards all - not critical, not fearful. “Except ye become as little children ye cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

Do you not see how necessary is your learning the method of Spirit-attack. There must be a certain root faith in Me, or you could not trust yourself to perfect surrender to Me. But there must come to those who walk all the way with Me, a yielding of their wills and lives wholly to Me, or the greater faith that results would be a source of danger. It would drag you back to the material plane, instead of to Spiritual Heights. For unless your will is wholly Mine, you will rely on this new God-given Power, and call into being that which is not for the furtherance of My Kingdom.

SPIRITUAL FULLNESS Our Lord, we love Thee and desire to live for Thee in all things.
My children, “Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled.” That is satisfaction. Only in that fullness of spiritual things can the heartsick and faint and weary be satisfied, healed and rested. “Lord,” we cry, “to whom shall we go but to Thee.” Thou preparest a table before us.” Bread of Life, Food from Heaven. How few realize that the feeding of the four thousand and the five thousand was in each case but an illustration of the way in which I should one day be the Food of My people. Think of the wonder of revelation still to be seen by those who live with Me. All these hundreds of years, and much of what I said and did is still mystery, much of My Life on earth is still spiritually unexplored country. Only to the simple and the loving heart that walks with Me can these things be revealed. I have carefully hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them unto babes. Do not weigh your spirits down with the sins and sorrows of the world. Only a Christ can do that and live. Look for the loving, the true, the kindly, the brave in the many all around you.

HIDING IN THEE
Follow Me, and whether it be in the storm, or along the dusty highroad, or over the places of stones, or in the cool glade or the meadow, or by the waters of comfort, then, with Me, in each experience there will be a place of refuge. At times you seem to follow afar off. Then weary with the burden and the way, you stretch out a hand to touch the hem of My Garment. Suddenly there is no dust, no weariness. You have found Me. My child, even if it seems unprofitable, continue your drudgery, whether it be of spiritual, mental or physical effort. Truly it serves its turn if it but lead you to seek help from Me.

FRIEND OF MINE
What man calls conversion is often only the discovery of the Great Friend. What mans calls religion is the knowledge of the Great Friend. What man calls holiness is the imitation of the Great Friend.
Perfection, that perfection I enjoined on all, the being perfect as your Father in Heaven is Perfect, is the being like the Great Friend and in turn becoming to others a Great Friend too. I am your Friend. Think again of all that means - Friend and Savior. A friend is ready to help, anticipating every want, hand outstretched to help and encourage, or to ward off danger, voice of tenderness to soothe tired nerves and speak peace to restlessness and fear. Think of what, to you, your friend is and then from that, try to see a little of what the Perfect Friend, the tireless, selfless, all-conquering, all miracle-working Friend would be. That Friend, and more even than your heart can imagine, that Friend am I.
Were I to read My Kingdom - My Kingdom of the Child Hearts - the doctrines of your churches, so often there would be no response. But the simple rules I gave My followers are known, loved and lived by them all. In all things seek simplicity.

BREAK FREE “For by whom a man is overcome....he is the slave.”
I cut the bonds of sin which bound you to evil. With loving Hands I replaced each with my cords of Love, which bound you to Me, your Lord.
The power of evil is subtle. A cut cord, a snapped cord, would awaken your slumbering conscience, but strand by strand, so carefully, with gentleness cunningly acquired, evil works until a cord is free. Even then the work is slow, but oh, so sure, until presently, the old bond I severed is binding you to evil, stand by strand.
Snap off these returning fetters. Satan hath desired to have you that he may sift you as wheat. He works with an efficiency My servants would do well to copy. He has marked you as one who will increasingly bring souls to Me.

NEVER let yourselves think “we cannot afford this,” or “shall never be able to do that.” Say “ the supply for it is not here yet, but it will come if we should have it. It will surely come.” Persevere in saying that and gradually a feeling of being plentifully supplied and of being surrounded by riches will possess you. That feeling is your faith claiming My Supply, and according to your faith it shall be unto you. But it is not the faith expressed in moments of prayer and exaltation I look for but the faith that lays immediately to rest the doubts of the day as they arise, that attacks and conquers the sense of limitation. “Ask and ye shall receive.”
My poor deaf world. What it misses in loving Words and Whispers.
I want to share so much with it. It will not listen. “Wherefore do you spend money for that which is not bread and your labor for that which satisfieth not. Hearken diligently unto Me and eat that which is good and let your Soul delight itself...” “He that willeth to do My Will - shall know.”
Whose Voice would you hear? So many voices are about you that you may miss the Still Small Voice. “This is My Beloved Son - Hear Him.”

You are being guided but remember that I said “I will guide thee with Mine Eye.”
And My Eye is My set purpose - My Will. To guide with My Will is to bring all your desires into oneness with My Will, My desires. To make My Will your only Will. Then My Will guides you.

REMEMBER ME “Give me a constant remembrance of Thee.”
Ask what you will and it shall be done unto you. But only if the heart desires what the lips express. “The Lord looketh on the heart.”
You will grow into the true attitude of remembrance of Me as you learn more and more to attribute all your blessings, all your guidance, to My increasing care: to the mind of your Master behind all, inspiring all, controlling all, the source of all your good.

Joy in Me. Joy is infectious. Trust and pray.
It is not sin for one who knows Me only as God, as Creator, to doubt Me, to question My Love and purposes. But for one who knows Me as you do, as Friend and Savior, and who knows the world’s God as Father - for that one to doubt My purpose and saving Power and tender Love is wrong indeed.

Go forward unafraid.
Face each difficulty, however great and seemingly unconquerable, as you go forward towards it.
The strength you will require from Me for that adventure into danger, as it may seem to you, will fortify you for its overcoming. “Fear thou not, for I am with thee.” “Be not afraid for I am thy God.” “I will strengthen thee, I will help thee.” “Yeah, I will uphold thee with the right arm of My Righteousness.”

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 forward in firm trust along the path of 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.

SAVIOR AND SAVIOR
If you believe it is My Hand that has saved you, then you must believe that I am meaning to save you yet more, and to keep you in the way that you shall go.
Even a human rescuer does not save a man from drowning only to place him in other deep and dangerous waters. But rather to place him on dry land - and more - there to restore him to animation and health, and to see him to his home.
From this parable learn what I your Rescuer would do, and even more. Is the Lord’s Hand shortened that it cannot perform and cannot save? My cry on the cross of “It is finished” is My Cry of Salvation for a whole world. I complete every task committed to Me. So trust and be not afraid.

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 pose, the mark of self-conquest, some faint reflection of My character, or a mystic scent of the soul unfolding to My Love.

~ GOD CALLING - 7/13
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 representatives, then why concern yourself as to whether the action I have arranged for you is wise or not? If your control of 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.
