My Utmost For His Highest : "Careful Infidelity"


May 23, 2012


Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or
what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body what ye shall
put on.

Matthew 6:25

Jesus sums up common-sense carefulness in a disciple as infidelity.
If we have received the Spirit of God, He will press through and say
- Now where does God come in in this relationship, in this mapped out
holiday, in these new books? He always presses the point until we
learn to make Him our first consideration. Whenever we put other
things first, there is confusion.

"Take no thought . . ." don't take the pressure of forethought upon
yourself. It is not only wrong to worry, it is infidelity, because
worrying means that we do not think that God can look after the
practical details of our lives, and it is never any thing else that
worries us. Have you ever noticed what Jesus said would choke the
word He puts in? The devil? No, the cares of this world. It is the
little worries always. I will not trust where I cannot see, that is
where infidelity begins. The only cure for infidelity is obedience to
the Spirit.

The great word of Jesus to His disciples is abandon.
