God Himself

My goal is God Himself…
At any cost, dear Lord, by any road.
“At any cost…by any road” means submitting to God’s way of bringing us to the goal. – Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His HIghest (November 17)

I’m a planner.

Give me a goal and a plan and I can chase hard after it.

But this goal?  God Himself?  At any cost?

That’s a clear goal with an ambiguous – and possibly dangerous and difficult – plan.

I struggle with that.

God has shown me quite a lot over the past month – journeying on a road that is costly…

God Himself.

Lord, help me submit to your way of bringing me to the goal.
