Part of two devotionals by Oswald Chambers:
"...we are not here for our own purpose at all--we are here for the purpose of God..."
"The call of God can never be understood absolutely or explained externally; it is a call that can only be perceived and understood internally by our true inner-nature."
"...we begin to see that the compelling purpose of God lies behind everything in life, and that God is divinely shaping us into oneness with that purpose. ...If we have a purpose of our own, it destroys the simplicity and the calm, relaxed pace which should be characteristic of the children of God."
