St. Theophan the Recluse – Thoughts for every day of the year

(Acts 14:6-18; John 7:14-30) On Mid-Pentecost we hear the call of the
Lord: “whosoever thirsteth, let him come to Me and drink” (John 7:37).
If this is so, then let us all run to Him. Whatever you thirst for -
so long as it is not contrary to the spirit of the Lord – you will
find relief in Him. If you thirst for knowledge, run to the Lord, for
He is the one and only light, enlightening every man. If you thirst
for cleansing from sin and quenching of the flames of your conscience,
run to the Lord, for he tore asunder the handwriting of our sins upon
the Cross. If you thirst for peace in your heart, run to the Lord, for
He is the treasury of all good, Whose abundance will teach you to
forget all deprivations and despise all earthly good, so as to be
filled with Him alone. If you need strength, He is almighty. If you
need glory, His glory surpasses the world. If you desire freedom, He
gives true freedom. He will resolve all of our doubts, loose the bonds
of our passions, dispel all our troubles and difficulties, will enable
us to overcome all obstacles, temptations and intrigues of the enemy,
and will make smooth the path of our spiritual life. Let us all run to
the Lord!
