Quote #5 From Oswald Chambers

Today's quote is what Oswald Chambers calls,"One of God's Great Don'ts."
I love it and I hope you will too!

The scripture from Psalm 37:8 he writes about says,"Fret not thyself, it tendeth only to evil doing."
This excerpt comes from the July 4th issue from "My Utmost for His Highest" by Oswald Chambers published by Barbour and Company.

Oswald says,
"Fussing always ends in sin...Fretting springs from a determination to get our own way. Our Lord never worried and He was never anxious, because He was not "out" to realize His own ideas; He was "out to realize God's ideas. Deliberately tell God that you will not fret about that thing. All our fret and worry is caused by calculating without God."

What a lot to think about today as we sometimes find ourselves fussing or fretting over things in life. I pray if you find yourself worrying or grumbling remember that you are taking God out of the calculation. Our greatest example of how to live a life that pleases God is Jesus. If Jesus never worried or was never anxious, then why do we?

Pin It!
