My utmost for His Highest June 8th excerpts
If you do not cut the moorings , God will have to break them by a storm n send u out. Launch all on God , go out on the great swelling tide of His purpose , n you will get your eyes open .
If you believe in Jesus , you are not to spend all your time in the smooth waters just inside the harbor bar, full of delight , but always moored; you have to get out through the harbor bar into the great deeps of God n begin to know for yourself , begin to have spiritual discernment .
Revise where u have become stodgy spiritually.. You knew you should do but you did not do. Now u have no perception , no discernment.
The counterfeit of obedience is a state of mind in which you work up occasions to sacrifice yourself ; ardour is mistaken for discernment .
It is easier to sacrifice yourself than to fulfill your spiritual destiny , which is stated in Romans 12:1-2. Better to fulfill the purpose of God than perform great act of self sacrifice. To obey is better than sacrifice.
----------what a just in time reminder !
Let's know when to launch out , to where n for whose purpose.
