A Prayer

Seems like the past few days God has been 'hammering' a point home with me. And I am so thankful for His revelation. I am grieved and burdened when I seek, in my own life and in lives around me, the elevation of 'self' and the degradation of God. I so easily justify and coddle myself when it comes to my own sin. I want to see God as He is, and I want to hate sin and evil, and love righteousness! I want to have a 'holy fear' of God and be 'undone', as Isaiah said, in His presence. I want to be constantly aware of my own sinfulness and desperate need for God; not to beat myself up and punish myself, but to keep me ever clinging to the cross of Christ. God, help me--us--to do this.
