I am currently reading “Abandoned to God” which is the life story of Oswald Chambers. Chambers wrote a very famous book, “My Utmost for His Highest”. I wanted to share a few quotes with you!
I don’t care what God does. It’s what God is that I care about.
Page 13. I do not know if that is very true in my life. It should be but I am afraid that I am more interested often in what God does for me than in what God is. God forgive me for being so self centered.
It take me a long while to realize that God has no respect for anything I bring Him. All He wants from me is unconditional surrender.
What a quote from “My Utmost for His Highest.” I am afraid again that I am far too impressed with what I am doing and what I want than realizing that all He wants is my complete unconditional surrender.
On page 59 he quotes from a message he heard from missionary Hudson Taylor saying:
Our Lord’s words ‘Have faith in God’ really mean ‘Have faith in the faithfulness of God’ not in your own faithfulness.
God I certainly want to learn to trust you and what you do. I know that you are God and that you are good.
