Quote #4 from Oswald Chambers

I love sharing these wonderful thought provoking quotes from Oswald Chambers every Tuesday. I pray they are challenging you to think about how to apply them to your own life. Today's quote comes from the January 30th page of "My Utmost for His Highest" Journal published by Barbour and Company, Inc.

Oswald says,
"Get into the habit of saying, "Speak, Lord," and life will become a romance. Every time circumstances press, say, "Speak, Lord"; make time to listen."

How many times do I come to the LORD telling Him what I think and believe to be the best outcome in my life? Sometimes listening to Him can become an afterthought in my prayer life. Listening to Him should not be an afterthought, it should be my first thought, my first word. Forgive me LORD for the times I have come speaking instead of asking you to speak to me! Listening to God is a habit that is practiced and learned. It does not come easily but it is possible to get into the practice of it. What a great example Oswald shares about using two simple words to get us practicing the habit of listening to the LORD. As you go about your day say, "Speak Lord." Whenever you feel like you want to tell God what you think, say "Speak Lord" and remember to listen.

I want to hear from you about what you think about this quote. Tell me if this is something you can apply to your life.

  2. Thank you Julie! I am so glad that God is using some of these quotes that have meant so much to me to encourage you in your walk with the LORD. I have had this devotional journal since 1999 and it has a decade of thoughts written throughout the pages. I have had other devotional books, but this one has ministered to me unlike any other. Thanks for the post!
