My Utmost For His Highest : "The Habit Of Rising To The Occasion"


May 15, 2012


That ye may know what is the hope of His calling ...

Ephesians 1:18

Remember what you are saved for - that the Son of God might be
manifested in your mortal flesh. Bend the whole energy of your powers
to realize your election as a child of God; rise to the occasion
every time.

You cannot do anything for your salvation, but you must do something
to manifest it, you must work out what God has worked in. Are you
working it out with your tongue, and your brain and your nerves? If
you are still the same miserable crosspatch, set on your own way,
then it is a lie to say that God has saved and sanctified you.

God is the Master Engineer, He allows the difficulties to come in
order to see if you can vault over them properly - "By my God have I
leaped over a wall." God will never shield you from any of the
requirements of a son or daughter of His. Peter says - "Think it not
strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you." Rise to the
occasion; do the thing. It does not matter how it hurts as long as it
gives God the chance to manifest Him self in your mortal flesh.

May God not find the whine in us any more, but may He find us full of
spiritual pluck and athleticism, ready to face anything He brings. We
have to exercise ourselves in order that the Son of God may be
manifested in our mortal flesh. God never has museums. The only aim
of the life is that the Son of God may be manifested, and all
dictation to God vanishes. Our Lord never dictated to His Father, and
we are not here to dictate to God; we are here to submit to His will
so that He may work through us what He wants. When we realize this,
He will make us broken bread and poured out wine to feed and nourish
