"We all have those times when there are no flashes of light and no apparent thrill to life, where we experience nothing but the daily routine with its common everyday tasks. The routine of life is actually God's way of saving us between our times of great inspiration which comes from Him. Don't always expect God to give you His thrilling moments, but learn to live in those common times of the drudgery of life by the power of God.
It is difficult to do the "adding" that Peter mentioned here (in 2 Peter 1:5). We say we do not expect God to take us to heaven on flower beds of ease and yet we act as if we do! I must realize that my obedience even in the smallest detail of life has ll of the omnipotent power of the grace of God behind it. If I will do my duty, not for the duty's sake but because I believe God is engineering my circumstances, then at the very point of my obedience all of the magnificent grace of God is mine through the glorious atonement by the Cross of Christ." - Oswald Chambers, My Utmost For His Highest
