My Utmost for His Highest Devotional by Oswald Chambers 

The Supreme Climb 

My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers 

Excerpt from devotion

If you will remain true to God, God will lead you directly through every barrier and right into the inner chamber of the knowledge of Himself. But you must always be willing to come to the point of giving up your own convictions and traditional beliefs. Don’t ask God to test you. 

Thought on Passage: 

I do have to admit that I tend to walk my path without thinking, “what is God showing me today?” I do not express myself verbally very well, so I will write my thoughts down as I go. I am good at seeing what I do see at times. In recent weeks I have learned some facts about friendship, and I have hurt by words, and the residue still lingers, but I am moving ahead in my life the best way I can until the residue is gone. I have shed no tears over the loss of a friendship because I have been freed from lies, and drama of the friend. My beliefs are what they are today for a reason, and I want to follow God the way I understand and know today.

1 Timothy 4:6-13 

6 If you point these things out to the brothers and sisters,a you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faithm and of the good teaching that you have followed.n 7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales;o rather, train yourself to be godly.p 8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things,q holding promise for both the present lifer and the life to come.s 9 This is a trustworthy sayingt that deserves full acceptance. 10 That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God,u who is the Savior of all people,v and especially of those who believe. 

11 Command and teach these things.w 12 Don’t let anyone look down on youx because you are young, but set an exampley for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faithz and in purity. 13 Until I come,a devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture,b to preaching and to teaching. 

Thoughts on Passage: 

I have wonderful friends in my church that are not afraid to tell it like it is. I want to be the best Christian who will follow God’s teaching and words of life. Sometimes the verses I read will reach my heart and mind to the point I feel an emotion that makes me think.
