My Utmost For His Highest : "What Do You Want The Lord To Do For You?"


February 29, 2012


Lord, that I may receive my sight."

Luke 18:41

What is the thing that not only disturbs you but makes you a
disturbance? It is always some thing you cannot deal with yourself.
"They rebuked him that he should hold his peace...but he cried so
much the more." Persist in the disturbance until you get face to face
with the Lord Himself; do not deify common sense. When Jesus asks us
what we want Him to do for us in regard to the incredible thing with
which we are faced, remember that He does not work in common - sense
ways, but in supernatural ways.

Watch how we limit the Lord by remembering what we have allowed Him
to do for us in the past: I always failed there, and I always shall;
consequently we do not ask for what we want. "It is ridiculous to ask
God to do this." If it is an impossibility, it is the thing we have
to ask. If it is not an impossible thing, it is not a real
disturbance. God will do the absolutely impossible.

This man received his sight. The most impossible thing to you is that
you should be so identified with the Lord that there is nothing of
the old life left. He will do it if you ask Him. But you have to come
to the place where you be lieve Him to be Almighty. Faith is not in
what Jesus says but in Himself; if we only look at what He says we
shall never believe. When once we see Jesus, He does the impossible
thing as naturally as breathing. Our agony comes through the wilful
stupidity of our own heart. We won't believe, we won't cut the shore
line, we prefer to worry on.
