Are You Obesessed With Something?

I know I am. Internet, books, t.v., electronics, etc... This was the title from "My Utmost For His Highest" that I read this morning. It was amazing and really got my heart thinking. Here are some excerpts I'd like to share with you.

"The total being of our life inside and out is to be absolutely obsessed by the presence of God. A child's awareness is so absorbed in his mother that although he is not consciously thinking of her, when a problem arises, the abiding relationship is that with the mother (we know this is true). In that same way, we are to "live and move and have our being" in God (Acts 17:28), looking everything in relation to Him, because our abiding awareness of Him continually pushes itself to the forefront of our lives.
If we are obsessed by God, nothing else can get into our lives--not concerns, nor tribulation, nor worries. And now we understand why our Lord so emphasized the sin of worrying. How can we dare to be so absolutely unbelieving when God totally surrounds us. To be obsessed by God is to have an effective barricade against all the assaults of the enemy."

Isn't that amazing? I thought I'd share that with you and hopefully it helps your heart as much as it helped mine.

  1. I totally agree with you. God is all we really need in our lives to be whole and he can get us through anything if we just look up and find Him. He has gotten me through some pretty amazing things in my life. Your blogs really heart touching.
