August 7, Today’s thought -Will You Go Out. . .

Good Morning,

Will you go out without knowing?

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. Hebrews 11:8

Have you ever “gone out” in this way? If so, there is no logical answer possible when anyone asks you what you are doing. One of the most difficult questions to answer in Christian work is,
“What do you expect to do?”
You don’t know what you are going to do. The only thing you know is that God knows what He is doing. Continually examine your attitude toward God to see if you are willing to “go out” in every area of your life, trusting in God entirely. It is this attitude that keeps you in constant wonder, because you don’t know what God is going to do next. Each morning as you wake, there is a new opportunity to “go out”, building your confidence in God. “. . . do not worry about your life. . .nor about the body. . .” (Luke 12:22). In other words, don’t worry about the things that concerned you before you did “go out”.

Have you been asking God what He is going to do? He will never tell you. God does not tell you what He is going to do–He reveals to you who He is. (me – I love this thought, by trusting in God, I learn who He is). Do you believe in a miracle-working God, and will you “go out” in complete surrender to Him until you are not surprised one iota by anything He does? (me – I think one of the blessing in serving God is being surprised, amazed and in awe of the working of God.)

Believe God is always the God you know Him to be when you are nearest to Him. Then think how unnecessary and disrespectful worry is! Let the attitude of your life be a continual willingness to “go out” in dependence upon God, and your life will have a sacred and inexpressible charm about it that is very satisfying to Jesus.(me – ‘Walk before Me’ to have a life that satisfies Jesus!) You must learn to “go out” through your convictions, creeds, and experiences until you come to the point in your faith there there is nothing between yourself and God.
~~~My Utmost for His Highest – Oswald Chambers

And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. Luke 12:22

Have an attitude of willingness. . .Today
With my prayers, desiring your, Leslie
