Will We Pay The Price Necessary To Find Him?

September 4, 2013

“Like a city after an earthquake, God’s Presence is hidden beneath the rubble of the Fall. Look inside. An honest look will first reveal the rubble of our efforts to make life work without God, of our terror that keeps us from naked vulnerability to anyone, of our construction project that has created a false self that we hope will stay together through life.

“This is the rubble of dust and stone that hides the Presence. We live in sheer dread of giving up control and abandoning ourselves to God. Only when we discover a desire for Him that is stronger than our desire for relief from pain will we pay the price necessary to find Him.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Shattered Dreams, Page 95

Question for Reflection:
What does an honest look at the rubble in your life reveal?
