Divine Control


These excerpts from “My Utmost For His Highest” are found at http://utmost.org/the-concept-of-divine-control/ (where all 365 of Oswald Chambers’ entries can be accessed) and they pretty much carry the same theme of the Category “Nothing Happens Without God’s Permission” but with a somewhat different approach. Editing and emphasis will be mine throughout….we begin:

“Fill your mind with the thought that GOD IS THERE. And once your mind is truly filled with that thought, when you experience difficulties it will be as easy as breathing for you to remember, “My Heavenly Father knows all about this!” This will be no effort at all, but  will be a natural thing for you when difficulties and uncertainties arise.”

“God is my Father, He loves me, and I will never think of anything that He will forget, so why should I worry?”

“Jesus said there are times when God cannot lift the darkness from you, but you should trust Him.”

“At times God will appear like an unkind friend, but He is not.

“He will appear as an unnatural Father, but He is not .”

“He will appear like an unjust judge, but He is not .”

” Keep the thought that the mind of God is behind ALL things strong and growing. Not even the smallest detail of life happens unless God’s will is behind it. Therefore, you can rest in PERFECT CONFIDENCE in Him.”

Take care, in Him.
