Tozer: gazing upon God

Friday, September 4, 2020
    Commemoration of Birinus, Bishop of Dorchester (Oxon), Apostle of Wessex, 650
    I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
    —Ephesians 1:18-19 (NIV)
    Constantly practice [the] habit of inwardly gazing upon God. You know that something inside your heart sees God. Even when you are compelled to withdraw your conscious attention in order to engage in earthly affairs, there is within you a secret communion always going on.
    ... A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Pursuit of God [1948], Christian Publications, 1982, p. 90 (see the book)
    See also Eph. 1:18-19; Isa. 6:1-8; John 14:23; 2 Cor. 4:6; 1 Thess. 5:17
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, draw me closer to You.
