Let Him Have His Way

中文: Chinese Version

Spoken a century ago, Oswald Chambers’ thoughts are as penetrating today as ever.

There is no such thing, he says, as a private life for a man or woman who is brought into close relationship with Jesus Christ’s sufferings.

Things happen which may have nothing to do with us. God is moving us closer to himself. “Let him have his way,” counsels Chambers, “Why shouldn’t we go through heart break? ”

At the first sign of pain we often collapse into self focus. But if through a broken heart God can bring his purposes to pass in the world, including deepening our relationship with his Son, “then,” says Chambers, “thank him for breaking your heart.”
