    I read it when I can in the evening This is not a typical mushy coffee table devotional, not at all In fact I usually have to read the short entries three times to grasp its meaning There is so much to chew on with practically every word written And it is not the easy stuff either no fluffy emotions This is testing of faith No fluffy good feelings but true inspiration for a radical life of faith.

    The copy of My Utmost for His Highest that I have was originally given to my son as a graduation present by the youth pastor of our Church He left home, went to college, got married and now has a son of his own Oswald Chamber s classic sat on our shelf for many years, unread, unappreciated and gathering dust beside an equally neglected copy of the Complete Works of Shakespeare It was only a few months ago when I was going down to visit him and his lovely wife and the uber grandson that I ran across MUHH again and decided to see if he wanted it back As a result I started reading it and was glad when my son said he did not want it back.I am not sure I would give this book to teen agers It is an acquired taste and requires a bit of effort to appreciate, but the diligent reader is than compensated for the effort As a result of reading MUFHH, I was introduced to the life and times of Oswald Chambers and his amazing ministry and his amazing and selfless stenographer wife, Biddy Biddy is the one who is responsible for the compilation and publication of MUFHH and all of Chambers over fifty published works.I will never be finished reading MUFHH because I am always dipping into it and every time I do, I always find a fresh insight about what it means to be a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ In case someone may not know, MUFHH is a daily devotional that Biddy culled from her voluminous shorthand notes All of Chamber s works and his life can be summed up in this phrase, Jesus always, Jesus only.

    This book makes me so crazy. He ll say something like, An average view of the Christian life is that it means deliverance from trouble It is deliverance in trouble, which is very different August 2 And I ll say, Yes, and Amen Then, two paragraphs later, he ll say, God does not give us overcoming life He gives us life as we over come And I ll say, What No Jesus HAS past tense overcome the world John 16 33 We don t overcome the world so much as live in that belief 1 John 5 45 The work is done, we re not doing it.On the upside, when Chambers missteps, it s just about always in one of two directions he expects the Christian to be perfect in obedience, and he downplays Christian community In other words, he has a bad habit of occasionally putting the Christian individual ahead of God and ahead of others Unfortunately, what this means is that he takes the focus off of God and puts it on self, which is not what I m looking for in a devotional.Oswald says, God does not give us overcoming life He gives us life as we overcome When the inspiration of God comes, and He says, Arise from the dead, we have to get up God does not lift us up Feb 16 But Paul says we are raised up with Christ Colossians 3 1 Too often, Chambers demands that we perform the Bible says the work has been done, and our job is to live within that fact Oswald did not, I trust, believe that we can earn our salvation, but he still liked the idea that man can do good works for God But anything we can do for God, comes from God the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control Galatians 5 22 23 While Christians should demonstrate these qualities, we cannot generate them, so when Oswald encourages people to produce these qualities, he can turn one s attention off of God and onto self.I would definitely not recommend this book for a new Christian, or for one who struggles with legalism, or who tends to believe in the whole earn your way to heaven approach And I wouldn t use it as my daily devotional, because too often it does not direct the reader to Christ but rather pushes the reader toward good behavior, a very different goal I guess I might recommend it to someone who is solidly grounded in grace, but is looking for a push in the performance department, which is kind of why I m sticking with it I suppose And I do think Chambers has some good things to say But if someone asked, I d probably recommend Piper s Desiring God first.

    This devotional has put things into perspective for me so many days in a row Oswald has a way of wording things that really gets deep down inside of you I have given two copies of this devotional away as gifts and I am about to give my third.it s a great gift idea, because it s really neat to be able to discuss what this means to another individual seeking christHere is just one small taste of one cool exert Nov 30 There is only one relationship that matters and that is your relationship to our LORD Let everything else go, but maintain that at all costs, and GOD will fulfill his purpose for your life One individual life may be of priceless value to GOD S purposes, and yours MAY be that life Oswald

    After finishing this year long devotional, the depth of my faith has tremendously deepened I have not yet found an equal to this material This is worth going through again for the second, third, even fourth time

    Going throught this in a small group setting I recommend this method so that meat is in the lessons There is much there but the way the general points are made may take some Scripture out of context or focus on one point that is not really the purpose.We are on 14 Janonce a week study.

    Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free Galatians 5 1.A spiritually minded person will never come to you with the demand Believe this and that a spirtually minded person will demand that you align your life with the standards of Jesus We are not asked to believe the Bible , but believe the One whom the Bible reveals see John 5 39 40 We are called to present liberty for the conscience of others, not to bring them liberty for their thoughts and opinions And if we ourselves are free with the liberty of Christ, others will be brought into that same liberty the liberty that comes from realizing the absolute control and authority of Jesus Christ Always measure your life solely by the standards of Jesus Submit yourselve to His yoke, and His alone and always be careful never to place a yoke on others that is not of Jesus Christ It takes God along time to get us to stop thinking that unless everyone sees things exactly as we do, they must be wrong That is never God s view There is only one true liberty the liberty of Jesus at work in our conscience enabling us to do what is right.Don t get impatient with others Remember how God dealt wih you with patience and with gentleness But never water down the truth of God Let it have its way and never apologize for it Jesus said, Go and make disciples Matthew 28 19 , not, Make converts to your own thoughts and opinions by Oswald Chambers May 6 edited by James Reimann

    In order to have written the most successful review for this book, I should have started with Day 1 and wrote something about each entry every day Sadly, I didn t do that So I ll just do my best to write a summary of my thoughts of this devotional over the year long experience of reading it I hope that any reader of this review finds that helpful.Oswald Chambers is a man who definitely had an ongoing encounter with God His thoughts tap into every aspect of the experience of following Christ and having communion with the Spirit of God His words are at times an incredibly profound comfort to a broken heart At other times, they are a prod to one s flagging determination to fight the good fight and continue that daily walk with God in a meaningful way Other times, they convict the reader in the best way The way that the Holy Spirit convicts a believer of complacency or willingness to settle for a life that merely pretends belief in God as opposed to a life changing, ever evolving relationship with God that affects every aspect of that person s life in the meaningful ways I do believe that God used Mr Chambers powerfully in writing this devotional I cannot count how many times I read an entry and I felt that God was talking directly to me A person once said that we don t read the Bible, but the Bible reads us I believe that Mr Chambers was prompted by the Holy Spirit to write something that does exactly that I found that questions I was struggling with that week were addressed so many times in the entries I read, and I saw the lightbulb go on inside my mind.I would recommend this devotional to every believer in Jesus, and even to people who seek to know God in a deep way I believe that the reader will feel touched deep inside and it will make them desire for of God in their life The good news is that God wants to walk with each and every one of us in that way and relate to us in a truly real way God always rewards those who seek him And My Utmost for His Highest is a good tool in that journey of discovering who God is and how intimately we can relate to him everyday Definitely worth getting a copy of this and spending a year with Oswald Chambers.

    If Christians are to read only one book ever on Christian formation, this book is the one to read The wisdom of Oswald Chambers famed My Utmost for His Highest is spread out over 365 daily readings I started this journey on the first day of 2016 and finished it today, the final day Written in 1935, the language is a bit archaic, but at the same time, the old fashioned words and wordings raises this book out of the ordinary into the extraordinary It s an otherworldly book there s no other way to describe it I ve read parts of this book over the years, but never cover to cover, on a daily basis throughout the entire year It s inspiring and convicting at the same time Oswald pulls no punches, and there were definitely times when I felt a bit bruised And than a bit at times But that s a good thing Oswald rips through any pretensions to complacency, and while it s an uncomfortable journey at times, it s definitely a necessary one How else can we put forth our utmost for God s highest

    This book makes you look at yourself, think, and act If you are typical, you will use this book every day for the rest of your life No book, except the Bible, has influenced my walk with Christ at such a deep and maturing level This book constantly reminds me that the ground of faith and experience is the person of Jesus Christ The basis of faith is always Jesus Christ Himself These daily readings have been selected from various sources chiefly from the lectures given at the Bible Training College, Clapham, during the years 1911 1915 then from October 1915 to November 1917, from talks given night by night in the YMCA, Hut, Zeitoun, Egypt In November 1917, Oswald Chambers entered into God s presence A large portion of the readings have been chosen from the talks given during the Devotional Hour at the College an hour which for many of the students marked an epoch in their life with God.
