TODAY’S VERSE: Isaiah 1:15
When you raise your hands in prayer, I will hide my face.
Most often we are very quick to brand people who are blessed with eloquence with the Word of God as very holy people. We see people who can speak in tongues for hours as supper humans. They have knowledge of the Word of God. They have successfully digested the word of God but could not internalise what God is saying in their lives. They sin even more than the people they lead. They practice cosmetic spirituality. They voices when they prayer, can bring down the roof of the building but their hearts are far from God.
