Getting first things first

“He went out, not knowing whither he went.” Hebrews 11:8

Have you been “out” in this way? If so, there is no logical statement possible when anyone asks you what you are doing. One of the difficulties in Christian work is this question – “What do you expect to do?” You do not know what you are going to do; the only thing you know is that God knows what He is doing. Continually revise your attitude towards God and see if it is a going out of everything, trusting in God entirely. It is this attitude that keeps you in perpetual wonder – you do not know what God is going to do next. Each morning you wake it is to be a “going out,” building in confidence on God. “Take no thought for your life, . . . nor yet for your body” – take no thought for the things for which you did take thought before you “went out.” Click the following link to access Oswald Chambers’ entire devotional reading for today: http://www.myutmost.org/01/0102.html

I’m not a vocational or institutional minister; I’m merely an working man, living in the USA, and trying 2 trust Him, day by day. So, when I read this morning’s devotional by O. Chambers, I had 2 take Him seriously.

Life is not all fun, but, the life we are called to is a lifestyle of faith i.e. of trusting Him regardless. That’s easier said than done. Regardless, for 2011, I choose to trust Him and “rest” in that peace that supercedes all understanding.
