Leave Room for God- Oswald Chambers

Posted on by Thomas Smith

As servants of God, we must learn to make room for Him- to give God "elbow room". We plan and figure and predict that htis 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 lives in a way we have never expected? Do not look for Him to come in a particular way but do look for Him.

The way to make room for Him is to expect Him, but not in a way you fashion. No matter how well we may know God, the great lesson is to learn that He may break in at any moment. We tend to overlook this element of surprise, yet God never works in any other way. Suddenly, God meets our life "When it pleased God".(Galatians 1:15)

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 when He decides.         Oswald Chambers
