Sublime Intimacy

That’s the title for August 29th in my edition of My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers. I’ve always found his words both challenging and encouraging. I was struck by the following:

Every time my program of belief is clear in my own mind, I come across something that contradicts it. Let me say I believe God will supply all my need, and then let me run dry, with no outlook, and see whether I will go through the trial of faith, or whether I will sink back to something lower. Faith must be tested, because it can be turned into a personal possession only through conflict. What is your faith up against just now? The test will either prove that your faith is right, or it will kill it.

I’ll let that quote stand on it’s own…
