My Utmost For His Highest : "The Realm Of The Real"


May 20, 2012


In your patience possess ye your souls.

Luke 21:19

When a man is born again, there is not the same robustness in his
thinking or reasoning for a time as formerly. We have to make an
expression of the new life, to form the mind of Christ. "Acquire your
soul with patience." Many of us prefer to stay at the threshold of
the Christian life instead of going on to construct a soul in
accordance with the new life God has put within. We fail because we
are ignorant of the way we are made, we put things down to the devil
instead of our own undisciplined natures. Think what we can be when
we are roused!

There are certain things we must not pray about - moods, for
instance. Moods never go by praying, moods go by kicking. A mood
nearly always has its seat in the physical condition, not in the
moral. It is a continual effort not to listen to the moods which
arise from a physical condition, never submit to them for a second.
We have to take ourselves by the scruff of the neck and shake
ourselves, and we will find that we can do what we said we could not.
The curse with most of us is that we won't. The Christian life is one
of incarnate spiritual pluck.
