I read a great quote this morning.
"When you attack the roots of sin, fix your thought more on the God you desire than on the sin you abhor." Walter Hilton
I do not know of Walter Hilton, but from this quote attributed to him I suspect he has/had a God-centered life. He is reminding me that I am not the center of the universe. God is the Redeemer. He is the Lamb of God, the Answer to my sin problem. The enemy would desire for me to keep my sin before me so that I would not be able to see the Salvation that is offered to me.
God, You are the Light in a dark world. You are Hope for the lost. You are Freedom from bondage. Nothing can stand before You! Do not let my thoughts be far from You!
