This is a weekly series with things I’m reading and pondering from Oswald Chambers. You can read the original seed thought here, or type “Thursdays With Oswald” in the search box to read more entries.
If we do not fit ourselves by practice when there is no crisis, we shall find that our nature will fail us when the crisis comes. … When your nervous system, which has been ruled by the wrong disposition, is inclined to say “I can’t,” you must say, “You must,” and to your amazement you find you can!
From Biblical Ethics
Practice now before the heat is on.
Then when the heat is on—and nerves are high—you will be able to choose the right thing. Remember what coaches say: You play like your practice.
