February 14 Thoughts for the quiet hour

At the commandment of the Lord they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the Lord they journeyed

Num. 9:23

This is the secret of peace and calm elevation. If an Israelite, in the desert, had taken it into his head to make some movement independent of Jehovah; if he took it upon him to move when the crowd was at rest, or to halt while the crowd was moving, we can easily see what the result would have been. And so it will ever be with us. If we move when we ought to rest, or rest when we ought to move, we shall not have the divine presence with us.

C. H. M.[1]
