Daily Thought: The Danger of Prayer and Bible Study

"Even the most sincere and committed Christian faces a danger: it is the danger of substituting prayer and Bible study for living fellowship with God.  Your desire to pray earnestly and diligently may so occupy you that the light of His countenance and the joy of His love cannot enter you.  Your Bible study may so interest you and intrigue you that, yes, the very Word of God may become a substitute for God Himself.  These pursuits can hinder fellowship because they keep the mind, heart, and soul occupied instead of leading you into the presence of God." ~ Andrew Murray, The Best of Andrew Murray, p. 123
