This morning I read in Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost for His Highest,
The secret of our Lord’s holy speech was that He habitually submitted His intelligence to His Father. Whenever problems pressed on the human side, as they did in the temptation, our Lord had within Himself the divine remembrance that every problem had been solved in counsel with His Father before He became incarnate, and that therefore the one thing for Him was to do the will of His Father, and to do it in His Father’s way.
Deep thoughts, and way beyond my 8th grade reading level, but the thought that struck me was that every problem had been solved…. before.
That gives me hope and strength today as I struggle with many questions about what I’m supposed to do.
The problem has been solved… I only need to do the will of The Father to know the solution.
As Oswald says, and I’m paraphrasing, its not ‘Walk in the light as our experience is in the light,’ we are to ‘walk in the light as HE is in the light,’ and the answers should follow.
