CQOD: 02/21/06 -- Fénelon: resisting God

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 21, 2006
    "I have seen his ways, but I will heal him;
        I will lead him and restore comfort to him and his mourners,
        creating the fruit of the lips.
    Peace, peace, to the far and to the near," says the LORD,
        "and I will heal him.
    But the wicked are like the tossing sea;
        for it cannot be quiet,
        and its waters toss up mire and dirt.
    There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."
    -- Isaiah 57:18-21 (ESV)

    There is never any peace for those who resist God.
    ... François Fénelon (1651-1715)

Quiet time reflection:
    Break down, O Lord, the last barriers my hard heart and bent will have thrown up in resistance to Your love.
