I read this daily meditation and thought so much of it that I am going to share it. There is this awful talk out there in the world of spiritual/religuos disccussion about useing God to get blessing (Christian circles) and making God or being your own god into and for your own purposes (New Age/non-Christian). This is in direct contradiction to both what God has revealed to us through Scripture and Nature. Here is Mr.Warren’s thoughts on it.
Many people try to use God for their own self-actualization, but that is a reversal of nature and is doomed to failure. You were made for God, not vice versa, and life is about letting God use you for his purposes, not your using him for your own purpose.
