Following Hard After God (An Excerpt)

I thought I’d share some of the excerpts from different places that have moved me and moved me hard… I hope this one also rattles, challenges and changes you the way it did with me…

O God, I have tasted Thy 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 need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, the triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing. I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory. I pray Thee that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, “rise up, my love, my fair one and come away.” Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus’ name. Amen – A. W. Tozer

I got this excerpt from A.W. Tozer in The Pursuit of God. Tozer opened each chapter with a prayer and the excerpt is a prayer opening the chapter, “Following Hard After God” You can download the book free here
