Intimate Allies

I'm reading this book - slowly but surely - Intimate Allies by Dan Allander and Tremper Longman. I started this book literally years ago and have picked it up and then put it aside many times. But I did make it through another chapter that was at God's perfect timing as usual.

Here is on of my favorite paragraphs from this chapter.

"God does not exclusively fill the human heart. He made humankind to need more than himself. The staggering humility of God to make something that was not to be fully satisfied with the Creator and the creation is incomprehensible."

I had never thought about the fact that man is not fulfilled by God alone, but that we need that relationship, it is part of us.
