gazing

"Many have found the secret of which I speak and, without giving much thought to what is going on within them, constantly practice this habit of inwardly gazing upon God. They know that something inside their hearts sees God. Even when they are compelled to withdraw their conscious attention in order to engage in earthly affairs there is within them a secret communion always going on.

"A new set of eyes (so to speak) will develop within us enabling us to be looking at God while our outward eyes are seeing the scenes of this passing world.

"When the habit of inwardly gazing Godward becomes fixed within us we shall be ushered onto a new level of spiritual life more in keeping with the promises of God and the mood of the New Testament. The Triune God will be our dwelling place even while our feet walk the low road of simple duty here among men."

- A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God, pp 95-97.

I read a few of your post... My feelings exactly. I only do what I see the Father do. Where there be tongues they will cease..along with prophesy and knowledge will be done away with, For when that which is perfect is come, then you shall know as your are known. Jesus is not a 'that' So it must be knowing as we are known. Seeing that we are like our Father. Complete in Him.
