Great Web Site

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 9:33 PM
Oswald Chambers is one of the most Christ-like evangelist of the twentieth centurty. His book: My Utmost for His Highest is one of the most renowned in the world. This man is inspirational, as he directs you to look to God, seek His will, and live a life of radical, loving obedience. I got the book, but was so moved by the daily devotionals, was not able to read through it in the 2 months I had it from the library. I have found that is online, with each day's devotional updated and available for that day. It is now one of my home pages. I highly recommend it as the one supplement to reading the Bible every day, if you only have time for one.

Here's the link: http://www.rbc.org/utmost/index.php

Just for an example, here is part of today's reading: "The reason many of us stop praying and become hard toward God is that we only have an emotional interest in prayer. It sounds good to say that we pray, and we read books on prayer which tell us that prayer is beneficial— that our minds are quieted and our souls are uplifted when we pray. But Isaiah implied in this verse that God is amazed at such thoughts about prayer.
Worship and intercession must go together; one is impossible without the other. Intercession means raising ourselves up to the point of getting the mind of Christ regarding the person for whom we are praying (see Philippians 2:5 )."

We were talking about worship, prayer, and praise today in Bible study. It's amazing how God brought this together for me today. He is good. He is worthy. He is love. May your days be filled with Him.
