Pieces

Consecration means the continual separating of myself to one particular thing. We cannot consecrate once and for all. Am I continually separating myself to consider God every day of my life?

The scripture reference accompanying this Oswald Chambers quote (My Utmost for His Highest, Jan.26th reading) is Matthew 6:30.

If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

What is the connection here? What exactly is the continual separation that takes place? Is it our choice to trust? Is it a willingness to be simple? Is it a choice to find God in the world around us? Or all of the above?

  1. I believe God is teaching me now to rest in the Truth that He is in me - working in and through me. So, for me, at this point in my walk with Him - consecration to the one thing is learning to recognize Him - HIs Work, His Voice, His Very Presence IN me.
    I've come on a long journey to this point.

  2. Hi!
    I am a Pastor's Wife of a Calvary Chapel and I was wondering, are you there with an organization?

    What is your mission there in St. Petersburg.

    I love that city because we adopted our daughter from there years ago.

    Anyway, I would love to pray for you. Let me know if you have any specific prayer requests.

    All for Jesus,
    Julie

  3. Thanks Julie! Right now I am trying to get residency, so that is a current prayer request. And the orphans could always use prayer, of course. Which orphanage did you adopt from?
