The chapter starts by explaining, that the Lord prepared for us a world of useful and pleasant things for our sustenance and delight. These things were for man's use and always was meant to be external to the man and subservient to him. In the deep heart of man was a shrine where none but God was worthy to come. We know sin was introduced and God was forced out of His central shrine and other things were allowed to enter. Men now have no peace for God is no longer crowned there and stubborn and aggressive usurpers fight among themselves for the first place on the throne. You can see it to be true for within the human heart is a tough, fibrous root of fallen life whose nature is to possess, always to possess. God's gifts now take the place of God.
This is not a book I received for free. This is a review and a copy of Tozer's words for no other reason than to spur you on to godliness. It is a must read not once but several times. May your hunger for God be stirred. For once you taste this life of grace, nothing can compare!
