If God does bless us in reading His word, He expects that we should be obedient children and that we should accept the Word as His will, and carry it into practice. If this be neglected, you will ﬁnd that the reading of the Word, even if accompanied by prayer, meditation, and faith, will do you little good. God does expect us to be obedient children and will have us practise what He has taught us. The Lord Jesus Christ says, ‘If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them.’” And in the measure in which we carry out what our Lord Jesus taught, so in measure are we happy children. And in such measure only can we honestly look for help from the Father, even as we seek to carry out His will.
