This morning life seems ordinary. I anticipate no flash of insight, no great battle requiring a rush of adrenalin. I must tell myself to get going, to do what is required of me, and to love God in the routine of life.
"Don’t always expect God to give you his thrilling moments, but learn to live in those common times of the drudgery of life by the power of God." — Oswald Chambers
When I obey God, even in one small detail of life, immediately a door is opened for the power of his Spirit to operate.
"The greatest hindrance in our spiritual life is that we will only look for the big things to do." — Oswald Chambers
So today I will choose to not look for the big, the important, the immediate result. Jesus became a baby. He could have demanded to instantly become a full adult human. Instead, he followed his Father’s plan. He said doing that was his life’s goal.
Coffee prayer: Lord, I give you myself today. Work out your plans through me, even in what seems drudgery to me. I am yours today.
