Houston: focused on God

Saturday, July 22, 2017
    Feast of Mary Magdalen, Apostle to the Apostles
LORD, I have heard of your fame;
    I stand in awe of your deeds, O LORD.
Renew them in our day,
    in our time make them known;
    in wrath remember mercy.
    —Habakkuk 3:2 (NIV)
    When our lives are focused on God, awe and wonder lead us to worship Him, filling our inner being with a fullness we would never have thought possible...
    Awe prepares the way in us for the power of God... to transform us and this transformation of our inner attitudes can only take place when awe leads us in turn to wonder, admiration, reverence, surrender, and obedience toward God.
    ... James Houston (b. 1922), The Transforming Power of Prayer, Colorado Springs, Colo.: NavPress, 1996, p. 221-222 (see the book)
    See also Hab. 3:2; Isa. 45:23; Ps. 119:120; Eccl. 5:7; Acts 2:43; Eph. 1:18-19; 3:14-19; Heb. 12:28-29
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, prostrate my heart before You.
