“Any man can have as much of God as he wants.”
That encouraging- and haunting- phrase is written in the back of my Bible.
It’s encouraging because of the hope that is held out during times of frustration and laziness. There is a promise that God is eager to encourage and bless each person. He cannot wait to do good.
It’s also haunting because the blame for spiritural apathy rests squarely on my shoulders. When God seems distant, I know that it is not because He has moved away from me, but that I have moved away from Him.
To sum it up, this short sentence should be a blessing. It’s a reminder of God’s pursuit of me and of my responsibility to diligently pursue Him.
