Each Day As Calvin & Hobbes

From my Oswald Chamber’s devotions…

He went out, not knowing whither he went. Hebrews 11:8 KGV

This is in reference to Abraham and his blind faith in God saying- want to trust me and walk to a land you have never been to – I’ll guide you there… but you don’t yet know where you are going…

So as for you and me – have we trusted God enough to change our life (for an hour or a day or week or year… you get the idea) and simply go OUT… (Noah went WAY WAY out for 100 years)???




Have you been ‘out’ in this way? If so, there is no logical statement possible when anyone asks you what you are doing.

One of the difficulties in Christian work is this question—‘What do you expect to do?’ You do not know what you are going to do; the only thing you know is that God knows what HE IS DOING. Continually revise your attitude towards God and see if it is a going out of everything, trusting in God entirely.

It is this attitude that keeps you in perpetual wonder—
you do not know what God is going to do next.

Each morning you wake it is to be a ‘going out,’ building in confidence on God*

So how does this fit with Calvin and Hobbes?


I have a basic routine like everyone else… morning routine – look at what is on today’s calendar…

But then it’s Calvin and Hobbes time – I can see what God & the Holy Spirit have on my schedule… and no please don’t think I have this Calvin thing down pat…
NOPE not even close!
ut on the days I do – it’s great
