Going Out With God

When we go out with people, we go out with REAL people. When we go out with God we should remember that we go out with ONE WHO IS REAL.

1 John 3:2: Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

1 Corinthians 13:12: For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

The parts of God that we can perceive in this life ought to convince us that His reality is the most important reality.

Hebrews 11:8: By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

Oswald Chambers on Hebrews 11:8:

Have you ever been *out* in this way? If so, there is no logical statement possible when anyone asks you what you are doing. One of the difficulties in Christian work is this question . . . *What do you expect to do?* You do not know what you are going to do; the only thing that you know is that God knows what He is doing. Continually revise your attitude towards God and see if it is a going out of everything, trusting in God entirely. It is this attitude that keeps you in perpetual wonder . . . you do not know what God is going to do next. Each morning you wake it is to be a *going out,* building in confidence on God. *Take no thought for your life, . . . nor yet for your body* . . . take no thought for the things for which you did take thought before you *went out.*

Have you been asking God what He is going to do? He will never tell you. God does not tell you what He is going to do; He reveals to you Who He is. Do you believe in a miracle-working God, and will you go out in surrender to Him until you are not surprised an atom at anything He does? Suppose God is the God you know Him to be when you are nearest to Him . . . what an impertinence worry is! Let the attitude of the life be a continual *going out* in dependence upon God, and your life will have an ineffable charm about it which is a satisfaction to Jesus. You have to learn to go out of convictions, out of creeds, out of experiences, until so far as your faith is concerned, there nothing between yourself and God.

Psalms 37:23: The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

Genesis 5:24: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

In every step we take and every decision we make we should have this attitude: Lord, I want to walk with you.
