What comes to our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us. –A. W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy.
This is the opening sentence in Tozer’s The Knowledge of the Holy. It’s also one of the most important, profound sentences that I have ever read. I find myself needing to read and re-read it in order to grasp it. Tozer is telling us a great truth that everything we believe, everything we do, every sin with which we struggle, every attempt to understand who we are and what it means to be a Christian is rooted in our thoughts about God.
Your view of God affects everything you think, feel and do. Think about it, it affects your prayer life and is the key influencer of all of your thoughts and actions. Once I was able to see what God was really like, my heart changed, I began to have a deeper walk with Him, able to trust more and in turn began to change my heart.
What about you? Are the things you think about God true to who He is? Don’t answer too quickly. We MUST remember this, whatever you know about God is so minute compared to what there is to know of Him; He is INFINITE.
What do you think about God? Food for thought.
I want to encourage you TODAY to seek Him out in a new way and allow Him to change the most important thing about you. Amen
