My Utmost For His Highest : "Careful Unreasonableness"


May 18, 2012


Behold the fowls of the air.

Matthew 6:26,28,28&sr=1

Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow, they simply are!
Think of the sea, the air, the sun, the stars and the moon - all
these are, and what a ministration they exert. So often we mar God's
designed influence through us by our self-conscious effort to be
consistent and useful. Jesus says that there is only one way to
develop spiritually, and that is by concentration on God. "Do not
bother about being of use to others; believe on Me" - pay attention
to the Source, and out of you will flow rivers of living water. We
cannot get at the springs of our natural life by common sense, and
Jesus is teaching that growth in spiritual life does not depend on
our watching it, but on concentration on our Father in heaven. Our
heavenly Father knows the circumstances we are in, and if we keep
concentrated on Him we will grow spiritually as the lilies.

The people who influence us most are not those who buttonhole us and
talk to us, but those who live their lives like the stars in heaven
and the lilies in the field, perfectly simply and unaffectedly. Those
are the lives that mould us.

If you want to be of use to God, get rightly related to Jesus Christ
and He will make you of use unconsciously every minute you live.
