My Utmost For His Highest : "The Test Of Self-Interest"


May 25, 2012


If thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the
right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will
go to the left.

Genesis 13:9

As soon as you begin to live the life of faith in God, fascinating
and luxurious prospects will open up before you, and these things are
yours by right; but if you are living the life of faith you will
exercise your right to waive your rights, and let God choose for you.
God sometimes allows you to get into a place of testing where your
own welfare would be the right and proper thing to consider if you
were not living a life of faith; but if you are, you will joyfully
waive your right and leave God to choose for you. This is the
discipline by means of which the natural is transformed into the
spiritual by obedience to the voice of God.

Whenever right is made the guidance in the life, it will blunt the
spiritual insight. The great enemy of the life of faith in God is not
sin, but the good which is not good enough. The good is always the
enemy of the best. It would seem the wisest thing in the world for
Abraham to choose, it was his right, and the people around would
consider him a fool for not choosing. Many of us do not go on
spiritually because we prefer to choose what is right instead of
relying on God to choose for us. We have to learn to walk according
to the standard which has its eye on God. "Walk before Me."
