I'm doing a study on Discerning the Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer.  I'm being challenged by it.

But, this quote was part of the study and I just had to post it and keep it.

"Whoever seeks God as a means toward desired ends will not find God.  The mighty God, the maker of heaven and earth, will not be one of many treasures, not even the chief of all treasures.  He will be all in all or He will be nothing.  God will not be used.  His mercy and grace are infinite and His patient understanding is beyond measure, but He will not aid men in their selfish striving after persaonal gain.  He will not help men to attain ends which, when attained, usurp the place He by every right should hold in their interest and affection."----AW Tozer

Convicting today and everyday to recall God's desire for us is about having true and right relationship with us where He alone is lifted up and glorified.  Let's just say idols will not be tolerated. No job, no person, no other relationship, no money, no goals -- nothing can take the place that he rightly should hold.
