“My worship grows and grows as my perception of God grows. God cannot grow. My perception of God grows as I experience Him day after day. I should be more capable of worshiping God today than I was ten or twenty years ago.”
From the Publisher
Delighting in God is the message A.W. Tozer intended to be the follow-up to The Knowledge of the Holy. He demonstrates how the attributes of God–those things God has revealed about himself–are a way to understand the Christian life of worship and service. Because we were created in the image of God, to understand who we are, we need to understand who God is and allow His character and nature to be reflected through us.
We are here to serve and adore Him, and we can only fulfill that role by acknowledging who He is. This is the essence of the Christian life and the source of all our fulfillment, joy, and comfort.
I enjoy reading books that challenge me to think bigger about God – to take God out of the box I too often put Him in and allow Him to grow my perception of Him. Delighting in God by A.W. Tozer did just that.
As I read (a chapter each day), I found myself growing in my perception of who God is and how I am to worship Him with my life. I was stretched and challenged in my faith, being invited by Tozer to think about God in a higher and greater way – to know Him experientially, not just cognitively.
James L. Snyder (compiler of this book) stated, “the purpose of this book is to stir up your heart with a passion for God that will lead you into following hard after God, even disrupt those who are content with their current passion for God.” As I read, I was stirred to seek God more passionately and with more purpose – to not be content to be lukewarm in my pursuit of Him.
I would highly encourage you to pick up a copy of Delighting in God and spend 10-20 minutes a day reading and reflecting as you seek to grow your own perception of God!
