"The foolishness of God
is wiser than men."
I Corinthians 1:25
"The Bible does not explain everything necessary
for our intellectual satisfaction,
but it explains everything necessary for our obedience
and hence for God's satisfaction."
from Discipline: the Glad Surrender, pp. 43
by Elisabeth Elliot
seems to me that real liberty consists in obeying God in all things, and
in following the light which points out our duty, and the grace which
guides us. We should should take as our rule of life the intention
to please God in all things; not only always to do what is acceptable to
him, but if possible what is the most acceptable. . .

"If I profess with the loudest voice and
clearest exposition every portion
of the Word of God; except
precisely that little point which the
world and the devil are at that moment
attacking, I am not confessing Christ,
however boldly I may be professing Him.
Where the battle rages there the loyalty
of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on
all the battle front besides, is mere flight and
disgrace if he flinches at that point."
The light of the
body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also
is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of
darkness. Luke 11:3.
"The tiniest thing we allow in our lives that is not under the
control of the Holy Spirit is quite sufficient to account for
spiritual muddle, and all the thinking we like to spend on it will never
make it clear. Spiritual muddle is only made plain by obedience.
Immediately we obey, we discern. ...When the natural power of VISION is
devoted of the Holy Spirit, it becomes the power of perceiving God's
will and the whole life is kept in simplicity."
