What does God have to do to get your attention?  If the Spirit of God brings to your mind a word of the Lord that hurts you, you can be sure that there is something in you that He wants to hurt to the point of its death.

God’s plan for your life will be advanced when you surrender your sin to its necessary death.  Trust in Him that more joy will unfold with the death of that something.

Adapted from My Utmost For His Highest, Oswald Chambers
