Coup d'Etat in the Human Heart

Coup d'Etat in the Human Heart

I don’t know if this was a blessed coincidence or a “God thing”: Last night as I walked, I listened to A. W. Tozer’s The Pursuit of God and had just finished the chapter on “The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing” when I arrived back home. I opened my laptop to get The Galli Report ready, and without searching for it, I immediately ran across a digital version of that chapter. So I took it as a divine sign that GR readers need to think more prayerfully about their possessions! At any rate, I found it a compelling chapter and trust you will too. Besides, Tozer is a good writer:
Within the human heart things have taken over. Men have now by nature no peace within their hearts, for God is crowned there no longer, but there in the moral dusk stubborn and aggressive usurpers fight among themselves for first place on the throne. This is not a mere metaphor, but an accurate analysis of our real spiritual trouble.
