Taken from today’s My Utmost for His Highest. A devotion from Oswald Chambers. Tomorrow, I am doing a liver biopsy because of the elevated numbers from my blood work. I am also in the process of applying for OMF (Overseas Missionary Fellowship) and everything right now hangs in the air. There’s no control and nothing I can do.
Faith is not some weak and pitiful emotion, but is strong and vigorous confidence built on the fact that God is holy love. And even though you cannot see Him right now and cannot understand what He is doing, you know Him. Disaster occurs in your life when you lack the mental composure that comes from establishing yourself on the eternal truth that God is holy love. Faith is the supreme effort of your life— throwing yourself with abandon and total confidence upon God.
