This Day’s Thought For Thursday

 

This Day's Thought

Prayer Requests

There is a loyalty which turns into idolatry.  The very thing which once freed us can turn into the very thing that enslaves us: a method of prayer, a technique of mediation, a way of expressing ourselves through art, music, writing or speaking, which was once the channel through which God reaches us, may have become the very thing which prevents our continued growth.  We may confuse the channels of God with God himself!!  This turns us into idolators of a certain system.  We become fixed and petrified.  It’s natural to thrill at each new level of growth and feel that we’ve arrived.  But God, the living God, keeps breaking our old molds; He constantly enlarges us, presenting new challenges and new sacraments.

Paul Tournier


This Day's Verse

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.  I will be found by you, says the LORD, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the LORD, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive.

Jeremiah 29:13-14
The New King James Version
