My Utmost For His Highest : "Get A Move On"


June 14, 2012


Abide in Me.

John 15:4

The Spirit of Jesus is put into me by the Atonement, then I have to
construct with patience the way of thinking that is exactly in
accordance with my Lord. God will not make me think like Jesus, I
have to do it myself; I have to bring every thought into captivity to
the obedience of Christ. "Abide in Me" - in intellectual matters, in
money matters, in every one of the matters that make human life what
it is. It is not a bandbox life.

Am I preventing God from doing things in my circumstances because I
say it will hinder my communion with Him? That is an impertinence. It
does not matter what my circumstances are, I can be as sure of
abiding in Jesus in them as in a prayer meeting. I have not to change
and arrange my circumstances myself. With Our Lord the inner abiding
was unsullied; He was at home with God wherever His body was placed.
He never chose His own circumstances, but was meek towards His
Father's dispensations for Him. Think of the amazing leisure of Our
Lord's life! We keep God at excitement point, there is none of the
serenity of the life hid with Christ in God about us.

Think of the things that take you out of abiding in Christ - Yes,
Lord, just a minute, I have got this to do; Yes, I will abide when
once this is finished; when this week is over, it will be all right,
I will abide then. Get a move on; begin to abide now. In the initial
stages it is a continual effort until it becomes so much the law of
life that you abide in Him unconsciously. Determine to abide in Jesus
wherever you are placed.
