February 8—A Pearl for Today

“I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart” (Ps. 101:2 KJV).

WALK WITHIN THY HOUSE WITH A PERFECT HEART
Lord, how I long to serve Thee upon some great mission field
And have the world see how much I love Thee,
By this, my sacrifice.
“Nay”, came His voice so gentle, yet so firm.
“Walk within thy house with a perfect heart
“And do not for other things yearn.”
Then Lord, make within these walls,
A perfect sacrifice of Thy grace.
A place where all who enter may see Thy face
And rest and be renewed.
May those who dwell here, Lord,
Find always warm welcome,
Peace and happy words.
That when they go,
Their own hearths to build,
They will have a perfect pattern,
And Thy perfect will fulfill.

Our attitude should always be, “speak Lord for thy servant heareth” (1 Sam. 3:10 KJV).

Quiet assurance comes when we have a listening ear turned to recognize the voice of God. Quick obedience guarantees further communication from God.

When we acquiesce with alacrity to any instructions from God, He is pleased. He will continue to share His will and plans with us. God has “a wonderful plan for your life.” When He says jump our only question should be, “how high?”

My heart has heard you say, “Come talk with me” and my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming” (Ps. 27:8 NLT).
