“The only way we can be of use to God is to let Him take us through the crooks and crannies of our own characters. It is astounding how ignorant we are about ourselves!”
~Oswald Chambers; My Utmost for His Highest
I’m going to talk about God, so if that’s not for you, I’ll see you next week! 😊
As I read this on January 12, 2023 this year, I was reminded that I need to continually let God point out the elements of my character that needs work. For me, this will be a life-long pursuit.
It’s foolish to think that my character is as good as it can be, and therefore, needs no more of my attention. That kind of mindset would cause me to miss opportunities for God to show me where I could grow my character, because I want to be more like the person He wants me to be.
Are there crooks and crannies of your character that you need to let God into? If so, invite Him in, and be receptive to the changes He wants to make in you.
