From A.W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God:
O God, I have tasted Your goodness,
and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more.
I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace.
I am ashamed of my lack of desire.
O God, the Triune God,
I want to want You;
I long to be filled with longing;
I thirst to be made more thirsty still.
Show me Your glory, I pray,
so I may know You indeed.
Begin in mercy a new work of love within me…
Give me grace to rise and follow You up from this misty lowland
where I have wandered so long.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
And here is another quote I read today (HT: FI)
“That God is good is taught or implied on every page of the Bible and must be received as an article of faith as impregnable as the throne of God.”
- A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy (New York, NY: HarperCollins, 1992), 128.
