Obedience

God is God. Because he is God, He is worthy of my trust and obedience. I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to.

~Elisabeth Elliot

Obedience to God’s will is the secret of spiritual knowledge and insight. It is not willingness to know but willingness to DO (obey) God’s will that brings certainty.

~Eric Liddell

***

Happy is the soul which … holds itself ceaselessly in the hands of its Creator, ready to do everything which he wishes; which never stops saying to itself a hundred times a day, “Lord, what would you have me to do?”

~Francois Fénelon
