This past week I received a blessing in the mail…a package of books from some friends! One of these books was Shadow of the Almighty by Elisabeth Elliot. I have definitely been enjoying that book – a wonderful biography of Jim Elliot! Just reading about his passion for God and diligence in seeking Him has been a great blessing.
So of course, today’s quote is from Shadow of the Almighty:
Of the flesh and its false emotions I have quite had my fill. Of Jesus I cannot seem to get enough. Thank God, though, He does not thwart the soul’s desire for Himself, but only whets the desire, intensifying, sublimating.
Throughout the whole book, you can see this quote lived out. He lived continually seeking diligently to know God more. I want that in my life – to care less and less for the world, to not pursue the things of this life, but to follow earnestly after God, knowing Him more, loving Him more! Seek only to be filled with God. He is the One who truly fills and the One who truly satisfies!
