“The great thing about faith in God is that it keeps a man undisturbed in the midst of disturbance.” - Oswald Chambers. Here are 26 Best Oswald Chambers Quotes.

Oswald Chambers Quotes

1. “We have the idea that God is going to do some exceptional thing- that He is preparing and equipping us for some extraordinary work in the future. But as we grow in His grace we find that God is glorifying Himself here and now, at this very moment. If we have God’s assurance behind us, the most amazing strength becomes ours, and we learn to sing, glorifying Him even in the ordinary days and ways of life.”- Oswald Chambers

2. “Eternal life is not a gift from God; eternal life is the gift of God. The energy and the power which was so very evident in Jesus will be exhibited in us by an act of the absolute sovereign grace of God, once we have made that complete and effective decision about sin. We have to keep letting go, and slowly, but surely, the great full life of God will invade us, penetrating every part.”- Oswald Chambers

3. “Holiness, not happiness, is the chief end of man.”- Oswald Chambers

4. “We look upon prayer simply as a means of getting things for ourselves, but the biblical purpose of prayer is that we may get to know God Himself.” - Oswald Chambers

5. “We impoverish God in our minds when we say there must be answers to our prayers on the material plane; the biggest answers to our prayers are in the realm of the unseen.”- Oswald Chambers

6. “The vision that God gives is not some unattainable castle in the sky, but a vision of what God wants you to be down here.”- Oswald Chambers

Oswald Chambers Quotes

7. “Faith for my deliverance is not faith in God. Faith means, whether I am visibly delivered or not, I will stick to my belief that God is love.”- Oswald Chambers

8. “Faith is not intelligent understanding, faith is deliberate commitment to a Person where I see no way.” - Oswald Chambers

9. “We must build our faith not on fading lights but on the Light that never fails.”- Oswald Chambers

10. “Every time we pray our horizon is altered, our attitude to things is altered, not sometimes but every time, and the amazing thing is that we don't pray more.”- Oswald Chambers

11. “Get to the end of yourself where you can do nothing, but where He does everything.”- Oswald Chambers

12. “We are in danger of being stern where God is tender, and of being tender where God is stern.”- Oswald Chambers

13. “God does not further our spiritual life in spite of our circumstances, but in and by our circumstances.”- Oswald Chambers

Oswald Chambers Quotes

14. “The greatest test of Christianity is the wear and tear of daily life; it is like the shining of silver: the more it is rubbed the brighter it grows.”- Oswald Chambers

15. “The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.”- Oswald Chambers

16. “Get into the habit of dealing with God about everything. Unless in the first waking moment of the day you learn to fling the door wide back and let God in, you will work on a wrong level all day; but swing the door wide open and pray to your Father in secret, and every public thing will be stamped with the presence of God.”- Oswald Chambers

17. “Spend plenty of time with God; let other things go, but don't neglect Him. We are not here to do work for God, we are here to be workers with Him, those through whom He can do His work.”- Oswald Chambers

18. “Keep your life in its constant contact with God that His surprising power may break out on the right hand and on the left. Always be in a state of expectancy, and see that you leave room for God to come in as he likes.”- Oswald Chambers

19. “To say that 'prayer changes things is not as close to the truth as saying, 'prayer changes me and then I change things.' God has established things so that prayer, on the basis of redemption, changes the way a person looks at things.”- Oswald Chambers

20. “As long as we are flippant and stupid and shallow and think that we know ourselves, we shall never give ourselves over to Jesus Christ; but when once we become conscious that we are infinitely more than we can fathom and infinitely greater in possibility either for good or bad than we can know, we shall be only too glad to hand ourselves over to Him.”- Oswald Chambers

Oswald Chambers Quotes

21. “God brings you to places, among people, and into certain conditions to accomplish a definite purpose through the intercession of the Spirit in you. Your part in intercessory prayer is not to agonize over how to intercede, but to use the everyday circumstances and people God puts around you by His providence to bring them before His throne, and to allow the Spirit in you the opportunity to intercede for them. In this way, God is going to touch the whole world with His saints.”- Oswald Chambers

22. “We are not responsible for the circumstances we are in, but we are responsible for the way we allow those circumstances to affect us; we can either allow them to get on top of us or we can allow them to transform us into what God wants us to be.”- Oswald Chambers

23. “No matter what changes God has performed in you, never rely on them. Build only on a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ, and on the Spirit He gives.”- Oswald Chambers

24. “Am I prepared to let God grip me by His power and do a work in me that is worthy of Himself? Sanctification is not my idea of what I want God to do for me; sanctification is God's idea of what He wants to do for me, and He has to get me into the attitude of mind and spirit where at any cost I will let Him sanctify me wholly.”- Oswald Chambers

25. “Depression tends to turn us away from the everyday things of God’s creation. But whenever God steps in, His inspiration is to do the most natural, simple things- things we would never have imagined God was in, but as we do them we find Him there.”- Oswald Chambers

26. “Beware of harking back to what you once were when God wants you to be something you have never been.”- Oswald Chambers
