Overview

God is not the supernatural interferer. God is the everlasting portion of His people. And when a man knows God, an infinite rage impels him when he suffers and is limited, and a heartless hopelessness settles on him when he reflects on any other than that of a "splendid animal." When a man "born from above" begins his new life, he meets God at every turn, hears Him in every sound, sleeps at His feet, and wakes to find Him there. He is a new creature in a new creation, and tribulation but develops that man's power of knowing God, till, on some transfiguration morning he finds himself "entirely sanctified" by God, and from the unspeakable bliss God loosens him from Heaven, a "pilgrim of eternity" to work a work for Him among men. Out he goes, a man that any may take advantage of, but none dare. His childlike simplicity excites the ridicule of men, but a wall of fire encircles him. His ignorance of the way he takes makes the cunning of the age laugh at the ease with which they can utilize him for their own ends, but lo! they are caught in their own snare, and their wisdom turned to sorrow and foolishness. Such a man becomes a spectacle to the world, to angels, and to men. Nothing can daunt him, nothing can affright him, nothing can deflect him. He may be tried by cruel mockings and scourgings, by bonds and imprisonments, he may be stoned or sawn asunder, tempted or slain with the sword, he may wander about in sheepskins and goatskins, he may be destitute, afflicted, tormented, he may home in deserts and on mountains or in dens and caves, but ever, by some mysterious mystic touch, we know the world is not worthy of him." All Heaven, all earth, all Hell, are persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creation, shall be able to separate him from the love of God which is in Jesus Christ the Lord.

ABOUT OSWALD CHAMBERS (1874 -- 1917) Oswald Chambers was born July 24, 1874, in Aberdeen, Scotland, and during his teenage years he was converted while walking home after a service conducted by Charles Haddon Spurgeon. His father, a Baptism minister, immediately attempted to lead him in the right way. After his conversion, and before he felt called to preach, Chambers studied Art at Kensington Art School and the fine arts and Archaeology at the University of Edinburgh. After he accepted the call to preach, he studied theology at Dundoon College. After an initial period of spiritual "dryness" Chambers found a radiant reality in his relationship with Christ. With his new-found spiritual life, he conducted a Bible Teaching Ministry from 1906 to 1910 in the U.S., the U.K., and in Japan. On one of his trips to America he met Gertrude Hobbs, and in 1910 he and Gertrude were married. He affectionately called her "Biddy". On May 24, 1913, their daughter Kathleen was born. In 1915 Chambers felt that he should help in the World War I effort. He became a YMCA Chaplain, and in October of 1915 he sailed for Zeitoun, Egypt, near Cairo, where he ministered to military troops. While there, Chambers' appendix ruptured. Though he suffered extreme pain for three days, he did not seek medical aid and refused to take a hospital bed that he felt was more needed for soldiers. Had he sought medical aid sooner, perhaps his life would have been spared. Finally, surgery was performed but, following the operation, Chambers died there in Egypt on November 15, 1917. Perhaps many are unaware of the fact that Oswald Chambers actually wrote only one book: "Baffled To Fight Better." But his wife, Biddy, had been a court stenographer and was very adept at taking dictation at a rapid rate. Thus, she recorded much of Chambers' teachings as he spoke in public, and after his demise she spent the remaining 30 years of her life compiling the more than 30 books bearing Oswald Chambers' name as the author. "My Utmost For His Highest" is the best-known of those books, and it has been in continuous print in the United States since 1935. It is among the top-ten religious best-sellers, and with millions of copies in print it has become a Christian Classic.
