Well, I tried to have a devotional-on-the-go this morning but it didn’t work. What was going to be a “take five” sort of quiet time (that’s five minutes to read, think, and pray) lasted longer with little thought of the time passing. I’ve started reading another book and quickly became absorbed with the words and encouraging thoughts and convicting descriptions on the pages. The book is about a worship disorder. I have a worship disorder.
Addictions should be consumed as wood is for a fire. Removed from heart. Turned into ash...a beautiful thing.
A description of the book is written on the back cover:
Will we worship ourselves and our own desires, or will we worship the true God? Scripture reveals addicts’ true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by “the woman Folly,” they are already in the grave. (Proverbs 9:13-18)
This book is a resource for changing lives. It’s about finding hope in the power of the gospel! I’ve personalized the following quote from this book:
A biblical understanding of the fear of Lord must be rooted in [my] growing knowledge that God is holy. When God teaches[ me] to fear him, he usually does it in a way that is utterly astonishing.
The Cross of Christ is HUGE! The cosmic event that brings liberation and freedom from myself…moves me to worship; genuinely worship my savior.
