"God called Jesus Christ to what seemed absolute disaster. His life was an absolute failure from every standpoint except God’s. But what seemed to be failure from man’s standpoint was a triumph from God’s standpoint, because God’s purpose is never the same as man’s purpose. As we grow in the Christian life, we begin to see that the compelling purpose of God lies behind everything in life, and that God is divinely shaping us into oneness with that purpose." —Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest

"Our lives mean much more than we can tell; they fulfill some purpose of God about which we know nothing; our part is to trust in the Lord with all our heart and not lean to our own understanding. Earthly wisdom can never come near the threshold of the Divine; if we stop short of the Divine we stop short of God’s purpose for our lives." —Oswald Chambers, in Bringing Sons Unto Glory from Quotable Oswald Chambers

Today's Devotional: The Brave Friendship of God - He took the twelve aside… —Luke 18:31 Oh, the bravery of God in trusting us! Do you say, “But He has been unwise to choose me, because there is nothing good in me and I have no value”? That is exactly why He chose you. As long as you think that you are of value to Him…
The most important aspect of Christianity is the relationship we maintain and the surrounding influence and qualities produced by that relationship.

"Doing God’s will is never hard. The only thing that is hard is not doing His will. All the forces of nature and of grace are at the back of the man who does God’s will because in obedience we let God have His amazing way with us." —Oswald Chambers, in Our Brilliant Heritage from Quotable Oswald Chambers

"The life of a saint reveals a quietness at the heart of things; there is something firm and dependable, because the Lord is the strength of life." —Oswald Chambers, in The Moral Foundations of Life from Quotable Oswald Chambers

"God is not meant to answer our prayers; He is answering the prayer of Jesus Christ in our lives; by our prayers we come to discern what God’s mind is." —Oswald Chambers, in Disciples Indeed from Quotable Oswald Chambers

"As long as you think that you are of value to Him, you have purposes of your own to serve. But if you will allow Him to take you to the end of your own self-sufficiency, then He can choose you to go with Him 'to Jerusalem' (18:31). It is not a matter of what we bring with us, but of what God puts into us; not a matter of natural virtues, of strength of character, of knowledge, or of experience. We are not here for our own purpose at all—we are here for the purpose of God." —Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest

Today's Devotional: The Compelling Purpose of God - He…said to them, "Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem…" —Luke 18:31 Jerusalem, in the life of our Lord, represents the place where He reached the culmination of His Father’s will. Jesus said, “I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me” (John 5:30). Seeking to do “the will of the Father” was the one…
The work we do is of no account when compared with the compelling purpose of God. It is simply the scaffolding surrounding His work and His plan.

"Jerusalem, in the life of our Lord, represents the place where He reached the culmination of His Father’s will. Seeking to do 'the will of the Father' was the one dominating concern throughout our Lord’s life. And whatever He encountered along the way, whether joy or sorrow, success or failure, He was never deterred from that purpose. The greatest thing for us to remember is that we go up to Jerusalem to fulfill God’s purpose, not our own." —Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest

"If you are a child of God, you will certainly encounter adversities, but Jesus says you should not be surprised when they come and there is nothing for you to fear. God does not give us overcoming life—He gives us life as we overcome. The strain of life is what builds our strength. If there is no strain, there will be no strength. God never gives us strength for tomorrow, or for the next hour, but only for the strain of the moment." —Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest

"When Jesus finished commanding His twelve disciples . . . He departed from there to teach and to preach in their cities." —Matthew 11:1

"God wants to instruct us regarding His Son, and He wants to turn our times of prayer into mounts of transfiguration. Waiting is not sitting with folded hands doing nothing, but it is learning to do what we are told." —Oswald Chambers, from My Utmost for His Highest
