"Am I fulfilling this ministry of intercession
deep within the hidden recesses of my life?
There is no trap nor any danger at all
of being deceived or of showing pride
in true intercession.
It is a hidden ministry that brings forth fruit
through which the Father is glorified.
Am I allowing my spiritual life to waste away,
or am I focused,
bringing everything to one central point—
the atonement of my Lord?
Is Jesus Christ more and more dominating
every interest of my life?
If the central point,
or the most powerful influence,
of my life is the atonement of the Lord,
then every aspect of my life will bear fruit for Him.
We must make a determination to limit
and concentrate our desires and interests
on the atonement by the Cross of Christ.
The disciple who abides in Jesus
is the will of God,
and what appears to be his free choices
are actually God’s foreordained decrees."
- Oswald Chambers

Please pray that it is so for all of us.
