The Tiniest Fragment of Obedience

The following is a classic selection from Oswald Chambers book, My Utmost for His Highest. I hope that you enjoy reading and meditating on it as much as I have.

"Obey God in the thing He shows you, and instantly the next thing is opened up. One reads tomes on the work of the Holy Spirit, when one five minutes of drastic obedience would make things as clear as a sunbeam. 'I suppose I shall understand these things some day!' You can understand them now. It is not study that does it, but obedience.

"The tiniest fragment of obedience, and heaven opens and the profoundest truths of God are yours straight away. God will never reveal more truth about Himself until you have obeyed what you know already." -- Oswald Chambers

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (Westwood, NJ: Barbour and Company, Inc., 1935, 1963), p. 210.
