Heavenly vision in practical issues

I am a first time reader of Oswald Chamber’s My Utmost for His Highest and so it was a special moment when I came across the phrase in a daily reading that lends itself to the title of the collection:

If we do not run our belief about God into practical issues, it is all up with the vision God has given. The only way to be obedient to the heavenly vision is to give our utmost for God’s highest, and this can only be done by continually and resolutely recalling the vision. The test is the sixty seconds of every minute, and the sixty minutes of every hour, not our times of prayer and devotional meetings.’ March 11

What is it that God has shown you and to what extent has this vision leaked? Take a moment to recall it and then do something, even tiny, to put it into action. PH

One thought on “Heavenly vision in practical issues

  1. Excellent excerpt PH.
    I agree we can’t replace the ongoing day to day, hour by hour minute by minute “walk with God” with a once a week church service and a short daily devotional. (Although that is important). It must overflow to become a lifestyle of love and devotion to Him. That’s what spills over and touches lives. JA
