My Utmost For His Highest : "Intercessory Introspection"

January 9, 2012

And I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be
preserved blameless.
1 Thessalonians 5:23
"Your whole spirit. . ." The great mystical work of the Holy Spirit
is in the dim regions of our personality which we cannot get at. Read
the 139th Psalm; the Psalmist implies - "Thou art the God of the
early mornings, the God of the late at nights, the God of the
mountain peaks, and the God of the sea; but, my God, my soul has
further horizons than the early mornings, deeper darkness than the
nights of earth, higher peaks than any mountain peaks, greater depths
than any sea in nature - Thou Who art the God of all these, be my
God. I cannot reach to the heights or to the depths; there are
motives I cannot trace, dreams I cannot get at - my God, search me
Do we believe that God can garrison the imagination far beyond where
we can go? "The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin" - if
that means in conscious experience only, may God have mercy on us.
The man who has been made obtuse by sin will say he is not conscious
of sin. Cleansing from sin is to the very heights and depths of our
spirit if we will keep in the light as God is in the light, and the
very Spirit that fed the life of Jesus Christ will feed the life of
our spirits. It is only when we are garrisoned by God with the
stupendous sanctity of the Holy Spirit, that spirit, soul and body
are preserved in unspotted integrity, undeserving of censure in God's
sight, until Jesus comes.
We do not allow our minds to dwell as they should on these great
massive truths of God.
