Oswald Chambers

The lasting value of our public service for God is measured by the depth of the intimacy of our private times of fellowship and oneness with Him.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The goal of faithfulness is not that we will do work for God, but that He will be free to do His work through us. God calls us to His service and places tremendous responsibilitie s on us. He expects no complaining on our part and offers no explanation on His part. God wants to use us as He used His own Son.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

God is not concerned about our plans; He doesn’t ask, “Do you want to go through this loss of a loved one, this difficulty, or this defeat?” No, He allows these things for His own purpose. The things we are going through are either making us sweeter, better, and nobler men and women, or they are making us more critical and fault-finding, and more insistent on our own way. The things that happen either make us evil, or they make us more saintly, depending entirely on our relationship with God and its level of intimacy.

Oswald Chambers

Never look for justice in this world, but never cease to give it.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The heart of salvation is the Cross of Christ. The reason salvation is so easy to obtain is that it cost God so much. The Cross was the place where God and sinful man merged with a tremendous collision and where the way to life was opened. But all the cost and pain of the collision was absorbed by the heart of God.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Our natural virtues can never come anywhere near what Jesus Christ wants.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

It is impossible to get exhausted in work for God. We get exhausted because we try to do God's work in our own way.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The thing that awakens the deepest fountain of gratitude in a human being is that God has forgiven his sin.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Am I learning how to use my Bible? The way to become complete for the Master’s service is to be well soaked in the Bible; some of us only exploit certain passages. Our Lord wants to give us continuous instruction out of His word; continuous instruction turns hearers into disciples.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

If we believe in Jesus, it is not what we gain but what He pours through us that really counts. God’s purpose is not simply to make us beautiful, plump grapes, but to make us grapes so that He may squeeze the sweetness out of us.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

It is the unseen and the spiritual in people that determines the outward and the actual.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

If you yourself do not cut the lines that tie you to the dock, God will have to use a storm to sever them and to send you out to sea. You have to get out past the harbor into the great dephts of God, and begin to know things for yourself....beg in to have spiritual discernment. Beware of paying attention or going back to what you once were, when God wants you to be something that you have never been.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Beware of trying to patch up a present refusal to walk in the light by recalling past experiences when you did walk in the light.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

If we are obsessed by God, nothing else can get into our lives - not concerns, nor tribulation, not worries.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

We think rightly or wrongly about prayer according to the conception we have in our minds of prayer. If we think of prayer as the breath in our lungs and the blood from our hearts, we think rightly. The blood flows ceaselessly, and breathing continues ceaselessly; we are not conscious of it, but it is always going on. We are not always conscious of Jesus keeping us in perfect joint with God, but if we are obeying Him, He always is.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

It is a life of FAITH, not of intellect and reason, but a life of knowing Who makes us “go.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

If I am going to know who Jesus is, I must obey Him. The majority of us don't know Jesus because we have not the remotest intention of obeying Him.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Oswald Chambers

If we obey God, it is going to cost other people more than it costs us, and that is where the pain begins. If we are in love with our Lord, obedience does not cost us anything--it is a delight.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Never take your obedience as the reason God blesses you; obedience is the outcome of being rightly related to God.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

If God has made your cup sweet, drink it with grace; if He has made it bitter, drink it in communion with Him.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Don't forget to pray today because God did not forget to wake you up this morning.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

It's one thing to go through a crisis grandly, yet quite another to go through every day glorifying God when there is no witness, no limelight, and no one paying even the remotest attention to us.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The characteristic of a disciple is not that he does good things, but that he is good in his motives, having been made good by the supernatural grace of God.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Repentance always brings a person to the point of saying, “I have sinned.” The surest sign that God is at work in his life is when he says that and means it. Anything less is simply sorrow for having made foolish mistakes-a reflex action caused by self-disgust.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

It is much easier to do something than to trust in God; we mistake panic for inspiration.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Our Lord’s making of a disciple is supernatural. He does not build on any natural capacity of ours at all. God does not ask us to do the things that are naturally easy for us- He only asks us to do the things that we are perfectly fit to do through His grace, and that is where the cross we must bear will always come.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Am I prepared to let God grip me by His power and do a work in me that is worthy of Himself? Sanctification is not my idea of what I want God to do for me; sanctification is God's idea of what He wants to do for me, and He has to get me into the attitude of mind and spirit where at any cost I will let Him sanctify me wholly.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Oswald Chambers

The Lord's questions always reveal the true me to myself.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

We are not made for the mountains, for sunrises, or for the other beautiful attractions in life - those are simply intended to be moments of inspiration. We are made for the valley and the ordinary things of life and that is where we have to prove our stamina and strength.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The teaching of the Sermon on the Mount is not--Do your duty, but--Do what is not your duty. It is not your duty to go the second mile, to turn the other cheek, but Jesus says if we are His disciples we shall always do these things. There will be no spirit of--"Oh, well, I cannot do any more, I have been so misrepresented and misunderstood". . . Never look for right in the other man, but never cease to be right yourself. We are always looking for justice; the teaching of the Sermon on the Mount is--Never look for justice, but never cease to live it.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Prayer is not only asking, it is an attitude of heart that produces an atmosphere in which asking is perfectly natural, and Jesus says, "every one that asketh receiveth.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

By Anonym 19 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The reason some of us are such poor specimens of Christianity is because we have no Almighty Christ. We have Christian attributes and experiences, but there is no abandonment to Jesus Christ.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

By Anonym 13 Sep

Oswald Chambers

God places His saints where they will bring the most glory to Him, and we are totally incapable of judging where that may be.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The test of a man’s religious life and character is not what he does in the exceptional moments of life, but what he does in the ordinary times, when there is nothing tremendous or exciting on. The worth of a man is revealed in his attitude to ordinary things when he is not before the footlights.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The scrutiny we give other people should be for ourselves.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Oswald Chambers

Let the attitude of your life be a continual willingness to "go out" in dependence upon God, and your life will have a sacred and inexpressible charm about it that is very satisfying to Jesus. You must learn to "go out" through your convictions, creeds, or experiences until you come to the point in your faith where there is nothing between yourself and God.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Oswald Chambers

The call of God is not just for a select few but for everyone. Whether I hear God's call or not depends on the condition of my ears, and exactly what I hear depends upon my spiritual attitude.
