We need to rely on the resurrection life of Jesus much deeper down, to get into the habit of steadily referring everything back to Him.

From John 16:29-31:  “His disciples said, ‘Yes, now You are speaking plainly, not in any figure of speech!  Now we know that You know all things and do not need to have anyone question You; by this we believe that You came from God.’  Jesus answered them, ‘Do you now believe?'”

We have all to find our niche in life, and spiritually we find it when we receive our ministry from the Lord.

From Acts 20:24:  “But I do not count my life of any value to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the good news of God’s grace.”

Oswald Chambers (1874-1917) was a Scottish evangelist and Christian teacher.  Following his death from an illness while in Egypt during World War I, his wife took on the task of transcribing the detailed notes she had written from his lectures and sermons.  Gertrude Hobbs Chambers’ efforts resulted in the publication in 1924 of MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST.  I frequently read from this devotional, and it has greatly deepened my faith and understanding of God’s Word.

Billy Graham (American evangelist and Christian writer)

To get nations back on their feet, we must first get down on our knees.

Oswald Chambers (Scottish evangelist and Christian teacher)

Prayer is the vital breath of the Christian; not the thing that makes him alive, but the evidence that he is alive.

From Psalm 4:1:  “Answer me when I call, O God of my right!  You gave me room when I was in distress.  Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer.”

The real test of the saint is not preaching the Gospel, but washing disciples’ feet, that is, doing the things that do not count in the actual estimate of men, but count everything in the estimate of God.

From 2 Corinthians 12:15:  “I will most gladly spend and be spent for you.  If I love you more, am I to be loved less?”

My worth to God in public is what I am in private.  Is my master ambition to please Him and be acceptable to Him, or is it something less, no matter how humble.

From 2 Corinthians 5:6-9:  “So we are always confident, even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord—for we walk by faith, not by sight.  Yes, we do have confidence, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.  So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to be pleasing to Him.

If you learn to live in the white light of Christ here and now, judgement finally will cause you to delight in the work of God in you.

From 2 Corinthians 5:10:  “For all of us must appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each may receive due recompense for actions done in the body, whether good or evil.”

To set our mind on the things of God, we must consistently choose to have the Lord’s viewpoint and reject conformity with the ways of the world.

From Romans 12:2:  “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

God cannot reveal anything to us if we have not His spirit.

From Ephesians 5:18-20:  “Do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, as you sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to one another, singing and making melody to the Lord in your hearts, giving thanks to God the Father at all times and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

The one thing for which we are all being disciplined is to know that God is real.  As soon as God becomes real, other people become shadows.  Nothing that other saints do or say can ever perturb the one who is built on God.

From Genesis 15:5-6:  “He brought him [Abram] outside and said, ‘Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them.’ Then He said to him, ‘So shall your descendants be.’  And he believed the Lord, and the Lord reckoned it to him as righteousness.”
