Hey friends! Last week I rolled out "30 quotes from Oswald." I think everyone enjoyed it. Oswald Chambers devotional "My Utmost for His Highest" is one of my favorites and I want to hear what you have to say regarding some of these stellar quotes.
Today's quote comes from "My Utmost for His Highest Journal" on the February 12th date/page.
"We show how little we love God by preferring to listen to His servants only. We like to listen to personal testimonies, but we do not desire that God Himself should speak to us? Because we know that if God does speak, either the thing must be done or we must tell God we will not obey Him. If it is only the servant's voice we hear, we feel it is not imperative, we can say, "Well, that is simply your own idea, though I don't deny it is probably God's truth."
What do you think about this quote? Has it been true in your own life? Have you found yourself preferring to listen to other believers first than being still and listening to God?
Talk to me.
