From:  Meyer, F. B. The Secret of Guidance. New York: Fleming H. Revell, 1896.

“We have no need or right to run hither and thither to ask our friends what we ought to
do; but there is no harm in our taking pains to gather all reliable information, on which
the flame of holy thought and consecrated purpose may feed and grow strong. It is for
us ultimately to decide as God shall teach us, but His voice may come to us through the
voice of sanctified common sense, acting on the materials we have collected. Of course
at times God may bid us act against our reason, but these times are very exceptional;
and then our duty will be so clear that there can be no mistake. But for the most part
God will speak in the results of deliberate consideration, weighing and balancing the
pros and cons.
