Our Father asks first for the presentation of our
bodies. Our eyes must see all through Him, our ears must hear only echoes
of His will, our lips must speak forth His praise, our steps must be
ordered by Him. Every organ of the body must be tuned in to please Him and
produce perfect harmony with His will, just as we tune in our wireless
sets. One hair's breadth to the right or left may bring discord, not
discord to the Announcer, but discord to us.
There is much in our daily walk to prevent our
correctly tuning in, but it is not the new mind that is out of order, but
the old mind warring against the new. May we all tune in better in 1937
than we have in 1936. Since it will be a year of outside interferences,
even more delicate tuning may be necessary, for the air is fast filling up
with the powers of the air, unseen enemies.
No new parts will be required in our wireless set, for
we are made perfect and without blemish, but very delicate tuning will be
needed to keep ourselves in perfect peace. God grant us more grace as the
great powers of evil give vent.
