The habitually punctual make all their mistakes right on time.
It is well that Gordon should be under my orders, but a manwho habitually consults the prophet Isaiah when he is in difficulty is not apt to obey the orders of anyone.
Consciously, distinctly, resolutely, habitually, we need to give ourselves, our business, our interests, our families, our affections, into the Spirit's hands, to lead and fashion us as He will. When we work with the current of that Divine will, all is vital, efficient, fruitful.frederic dan huntington
