Tozer: God articulate

Friday, October 14, 2022
    I will listen to what God the LORD will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints—but let them not return to folly.
    —Psalm 85:8 (NIV)
    The Bible will never be a living Book to us until we are convinced that God is articulate in His universe. To jump from a dead, impersonal world to a dogmatic Bible is too much for most people. They may admit that they should accept the Bible as the Word of God, and they may try to think of it as such, but they find it impossible to believe that the words there on the page are actually for them. A man may say, “These words are addressed to me,” and yet in his heart not feel and know that they are. He is the victim of a divided psychology. He tries to think of God as mute everywhere else and vocal only in a book.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 76-77 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 85:8; Luke 11:28; 24:27,45; John 5:39-40; Rom. 3:1-2; Eph. 6:17; Phil. 2:14-16; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Heb. 4:12; 1 Pet. 1:10-12; 2 Pet. 1:21; 3:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me to hear You as You speak to me.
