“Whenever anything begins to disintegrate in Your life with Jesus Christ, turn o Him at once and ask Him to establish rest. Never allow anything to remain which is making the dis-peace. Take every element of disintegration as something to wrestle against, and not to suffer … Beware of allowing self-consciousness to continue because by slow degrees it will awaken self-pity, and self-pity is Satanic. -Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest, August 20
Take action, don’t just sit there and take things disintegrating in your life. This is one of my difficulties. When is it something to fight, wrestle, and when is it something that I need to suffer. Do I fight something directly, take action? Or is it something that I fight, wrestle with more discreetly. No matter what, I pray. I’m a take-charge, action person, so it is difficult for me to stay quiet and still when there is something not right.
3 the Lord said, “As my servant Isaiah has gone stripped and barefoot three years as a sign and omen against Egypt and Cush,
Three years barefoot and naked. Three years going everywhere. How much ridicule did he receive?
Being a prophet sure wasn’t easy!
