Can We Enjoy God More Than Anyone Or Anything Else?
“If we believe there’s more pleasure in something other than God, then our obedience will never rise above required duty, our prayers will never aim higher than using God, and our joy will always leave an emptiness that drives us to further self-centered efforts to find the fullness we demand.
So the question we must squarely face is this: Does knowing God really provide the pleasure our souls were designed to enjoy? Can we enjoy God more than anyone or anything else?”
Dr. Larry Crabb, Shattered Dreams, Page 175

• Ask the Holy Spirit to work in you today so that increasingly, your obedience will be your privilege, your prayers will seek to draw near to God and further His kingdom, and your joy will be in giving pleasure to the heart of God.
