My Utmost For His Highest : "God's Say-So"


June 5, 2012


He hath said ... so that we may boldly say ...

Hebrews 8:5-6

My say-so is to be built on God's say-so. God says - "I will never
leave thee," then I can with good courage say - "The Lord is my
helper, I will not fear - " I will not be haunted by apprehension.
This does not mean that I will not be tempted to fear, but I will
remember God's say-so. I will be full of courage, like a child
"bucking himself up" to reach the standard his father wants. Faith in
many a one falters when the apprehensions come, they forget the
meaning of God's say-so, forget to take a deep breath spiritually.
The only way to get the dread taken out of us is to listen to God's

What are you dreading? You are not a coward about it, you are going
to face it, but there is a feeling of dread. When there is nothing
and no one to help you, say - "But the Lord is my Helper, this
second, in my present outlook." Are you learning to say things after
listening to God, or are you saying things and trying to make God's
word fit in? Get hold of the Father's say-so, and then say with good
courage - "I will not fear." It does not matter what evil or wrong
may be in the way, He has said - "I will never leave thee."

Frailty is another thing that gets in between God's say-so and ours.
When we realize how feeble we are in facing difficulties, the
difficulties become like giants, we become like grasshoppers, and God
becomes a nonentity. Remember God's say-so - "I will in no wise fail
you." Have we learned to sing after hearing God's key-note? Are we
always possessed with the courage to say - "The Lord is my helper,"
or are we succumbing?
