My wife Michelle and I have been listening to a series on the life of David recently — that has been truly remarkable. This quote was talked about in one of the messages & it is attributed to C.S. Lewis. Not 100% sure if Lewis said this or not, but nonetheless – I liked the quote:
“This is the heart of our enemy. He is determined to hinder and harm and ruin God’s image bearers. To steal and kill and destroy. So, let me say this again: the story of your life is the story of the long and brutal assault on your heart by the one who knows what you could be and fears it. There really is a glory to your life, even if you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see it — the enemy sees it, so he attacks your heart. And he is hell-bent on destroying your life, before you act on that glory.”
Here is to all of us sojourners — to act on the glory of our lifes that Christ has placed inside of us.
Ezekiel 36:26 And I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do whatever I command.
