The Knowledge of the Holy-A.W. Tozer

“What comes into our minds when we think about G-d is the most important thing about us.”

“We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of G-d.”

“Were we able to extract from any man a complete answer to the question, “What comes to mind when you think about G-d?” we might predict with certainty the spiritual future of that man.”

“Without a doubt, the mightiest thought the mind can entertain is the thought of G-d, and the wieghtiest word in any language is its word for G-d. Thought and speech are G-d’s gift to creatures made in His image; these are intimately associated with Him and impossible apart from Him. It is highly significant that the first word was the Word: “And the Word was with G-d, and the Word was G-d.” We may speak because G-d spoke. In Him word and idea are indivisible.”

    Why are you removing the letter ‘o’ from the word God? That’s NOT His name. I suspect Mr. Tozer was a great deal closer to the Lord than most anybody we’ve met, yet he did not see fit to engage in such silliness.
