The Focal Point of Spiritual Power

My Utmost His Highest

"…except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ…" (Galatians 6:14)

If you want to know the power of God (that is, the resurrection life of Jesus) in your human flesh, you must dwell on the tragedy of God. Break away from your personal concern over your own spiritual condition, and with a completely open spirit consider the tragedy of God. Instantly the power of God will be in you. “Look to Me…” (Isaiah 45:22). Pay attention to the external Source and the internal power will be there. We lose power because we don’t focus on the right thing. . . If I share my own words, they are of no more importance than your words are to me. But if we share the truth of God with one another, we will encounter it again and again. We have to focus on the great point of spiritual power — the Cross. If we stay in contact with that center of power, its energy is released in our lives. (read more) (purchase)
