"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

It 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."
