Leave room for God Oswald Chambers

february last day with Haleys 019

As servants of God, we must learn to make room for Him-to give God “elbow room.”

We plan and figure and predict that this or that will happen,

 but we forget to make room for God to come in as He chooses. 

Would we be surprised if God came into our meeting

or into our preaching in a way we had never expected Him to come? 

Last trip in February to the hill 031

Do not look for God to come in a particular way, but do look for Him.

The way to make room for His is to expect Him to come, but not in a certain way. 

No matter how well we may know God, the great lesson to learn is that He may break in at any minute.

We tend to overlook this element of surprise, yt God never works in any other way.

Suddenly-God meets our life- “when it pleased God…” (Galatians 1:15)

february last day with Haleys 017

Keep your life so constantly in touch with God that his surprising power can break through at any point.

Live in a constant state of expectancy, and leave room for God to come in as He decides.
