Pretense Before God

October 29, 2010

“Pretense before God is foolish. Its source is pride. God cannot meet us on the ground of pride and pretense. A humble one comes before God with truthfulness about self. The Lord welcomes us when we begin where we are and call upon Him to do what needs to be done so we can become what He wants us to be. He knows everything about us anyway—everything! Nothing is hidden from His sight. He knows even what we do not know about ourselves. And yet He loves us more than we can ever know. He can cause our greatest pleasure to be time alone with Him. He awaits our humble honesty about our need and then as our dear loving Father He will gladly meet us. With tender compassion He will transform our desires until we long for Him and His presence more than anything else, which at this moment seems so much more exciting than fellowship with Him.”
