Tozer: God as He is

Friday, August 29, 2014
    Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
    —James 4:7-8 (NIV)
    Much of our difficulty as seeking Christians stems from our unwillingness to take God as He is and adjust our lives accordingly. We insist upon trying to modify Him and bring Him nearer to our own image.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 95 (see the book)
    See also Jas. 4:7-8; 2 Chr. 30:8; Ps. 46:10; 66:3; 145:18; Hos. 6:1-2; Matt. 11:29; Rom. 10:3; 14:11; Heb. 12:9; Jas. 1:6-8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I acknowledge You to be my King.
