Who doesn't need help developing their character when it comes to suffering, peril, prayer, patience, or who doesn't need answers in the areas of loneliness and divine guidance? Oswald Chambers, author of My Utmost for His Highest calls these disciplines, and helps you understand God's perspective and how to understand the events of our life, and how they are used to mold you more and more into the character of Christ. As you grow in these personal disciplines, you'll find that your intimacy with Christ grows too, helping you to find a more satisfying and abundant faith life.
“If we trace the lineaments of the servants of God in the Bible, we find a servant of God to be altogether different from an instrument of God. An instrument of God is one whom God takes up and uses and puts down again. A servant of God is one who has given up for ever his right to himself, and is bound to his Lord as His slave.” (source)
“The eternal truth is that God created me to be distinctly not Himself, but to realise Him in perfect love. If I allow that God teaches me to walk in His will, I shall allow my neighbour, whom I love as myself, the same certainty, although his way may seem so different. ‘What is that to thee? follow thou Me.’” (source)
