I Need Oswald Chambers to Mind His Business!!!!!!- Toya

I read Oswald Chambers' "Utmost for His Highest" devotional everyday with one eye open because he breaks my face on a continuous basis. This devotional that I got on Saturday darn near gave me a black eye...

I read this and was like DAMN OSWALD CHAMBERS!!!!!!!! He was gangsta. My favorite part is "No, you will not."

My Utmost for His Highest - April 25

Title: Instant In Season

Key Verse:

Be instant in season, out of season."

Click link below to study this verse: 2 Timothy 4:2

Many of us suffer from the morbid tendency to be instant "out of season."
The season does not refer to time, but to us - 'Be instant in season, out
of season," whether we feel like it or not. If we do only what we feel
inclined to do, some of us would do nothing for ever and ever. There are
unemployables in the spiritual domain, spiritually decrepit people, who
refuse to do anything unless they are supernaturally inspired. The proof
that we are rightly related to God is that we do our best whether we feel
inspired or not.

 One of the great snares of the Christian worker is to make a fetish of
his rare moments. When the Spirit of God gives you a time of inspiration
and insight, you say - "Now I will always be like this for God." No, you
will not. Those times are the gift of God
entirely. You cannot give them to yourself when you choose. If you say you
will only be at your best, you become an intolerable drag on God; you will
never do anything unless God keeps you consciously inspired. If you make a
god of your best moments, you will find that God will fade out of your
life and never come back until you do the duty that lies nearest, and have
learned not to make a fetish of your rare moments.
