“We have as much of God as we actually want” ~ Tozer

“He satisfies the longing soul, and the hungry soul he fills with good things” http://bible.us/Ps107.9.ESV.

“He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him” http://bible.us/Prov30.5.ESV.

What am I hungry and thirsty for? What do I take refuge in? These are the questions that determine how deep we go with God. Do we travel to church hungry to feel good about ourselves, to relieve a sense of obligation, because it’s what we do on Sunday, or out of a deep desire/hunger to know God and have him more active in our lives? Do I take refuge in my ability to provide a safe lifestyle for my family? in my home, behind my privacy fence? in my education? in my possessions? an addiction? or in a God that controls all of the above and more anyway?

The entire Tozer quote found here:

The degree of fullness in any life accords perfectly with the intensity of true desire. We have as much of God as we actually want. One great hindrance to the Spirit-filled life is the theology of complacency so widely accepted among gospel Christians today.
