The Myth of the Conformist God

“Much of out difficulty stems fromour unwillingness to take God as He is and adjust our lives accordingly.” —A.W. Tozer

Perhaps the greatest words we could ever say to God are also the most frightening words we could ever here from Him—”Thy will be done.” Attempting to conform God to our purposes and will in light of His infinite greatness is—well, I’ll let you choose the word. Can you imaging a shepherd following the lead of his sheep?

Follow. He knows where He’s going.

  1. Thanks for this, Jay. Reading in Isaiah today, reading 2 Chronicles prior… always this is highlighted to me. Love and fear. He is awesome. Revere Him. He is GOD. His grace is amazing.
