My Utmost For His Highest : "The Hidden Life"

December 24, 2011

Your life is hid with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:3
The Spirit of God witnesses to the simple almighty security of the
life hid with Christ in God and this is continually brought out in
the Epistles. We talk as if it were the most precarious thing to live
the sanctified life; it is the most secure thing, because it has
Almighty God in and behind it. The most precarious thing is to try
and live without God. If we are born again it is the easiest thing to
live in right relationship to God and the most difficult thing to go
wrong, if only we will heed God's warnings and keep in the light.
When we think of being delivered from sin, of being filled with the
Spirit, and of walking in the light, we picture the peak of a great
mountain, very high and wonderful, and we say - "Oh, but I could
never live up there!" But when we do get there by God's grace, we
find it is not a mountain peak, but a plateau where there is ample
room to live and to grow. "Thou hast enlarged my steps under me."
When you really see Jesus, I defy you to doubt Him. When He says -
"Let not your heart be troubled," if you see Him I defy you to
trouble your mind, it is a moral impossibility to doubt when He is
there. Every time you get into personal contact with Jesus, His words
are real. "My peace I give unto you," it is a peace all over from the
crown of the head to the sole of the feet, an irrepressible
confidence. "Your life is hid with Christ in God," and the
imperturbable peace of Jesus Christ is imparted to you.
