My Utmost For His Highest : "What Are You Haunted By?"


June 2, 2012


What man is he that feareth the Lord?"

Psalms 25:12

What are you haunted by? You will say - By nothing, but we are all
haunted by something, generally by ourselves, or, if we are
Christians, by our experience. The Psalmist says we are to be haunted
by God. The abiding consciousness of the life is to be God, not
thinking about Him. The whole of our life inside and out is to be
absolutely haunted by the presence of God. A child's consciousness is
so mother-haunted that although the child is not consciously thinking
of its mother, yet when calamity arises, the relationship that abides
is that of the mother. So we are to live and move and have our being
in God, to look at everything in relation to God, because the abiding
consciousness of God pushes itself to the front all the time.

If we are haunted by God, nothing else can get in, no cares, no
tribulation, no anxieties. We see now why Our Lord so emphasized the
sin of worry. How can we dare be so utterly unbelieving when God is
round about us? To be haunted by God is to have an effective
barricade against all the onslaughts of the enemy.

"His soul shall dwell at ease." In tribulation, misunderstanding,
slander, in the midst of all these things, if our life is hid with
Christ in God, He will keep us at ease. We rob ourselves of the
marvellous revelation of this abiding companionship of God. "God is
our Refuge" - nothing can come through that shelter.
