On the banks of the Jordan

Alone at Your "Jordan" (2 Kings 2:14). The Jordan River represents the type of separation where you have no fellowship with anyone else, and where no one else can take your responsibility from you. You now have to put to the test what you learned when you were with your "Elijah." You have been to the Jordan over and over again with Elijah, but now you are facing it alone. There is no use in saying that you cannot go— the experience is here, and you must go. If you truly want to know whether or not God is the God your faith believes Him to be, then go through your "Jordan" alone.

Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (11 August, "This Experience Must Come")

Entirely too long since I've risen early and spent the morning with my Lord in quiet. It feels like a clandestine meeting, lit by candlelight, wearing my hooded robe, drinking a small pot of Earl Grey with breakfast of bread and grapes. It is a good morning, full of grace that far exceeds my words, or the need of them.

My Utmost for His Highest was just what I needed to read this morning.
