12/06/16 To Know Him More
“I see all the things that you’re doing for Me, but I’d rather talk. Don’t you feel a little lonely without My presence? Wouldn’t things work better for you if I was at the center of them? Why are you running ahead of Me? We haven’t spent enough time together to have you know My heart. That really has to change. I need to share some pretty vital information with you before you move out again, thinking I am with you. Make Me your priority. Doing good things is not necessarily what I want for you. I want your heart to be in line with My heart. Then We can move together.”
Ps. 16:11 AMP
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
Amos 5:14 NIV
Seek good, not evil, that you may live. Then the Lord God Almighty will be with you, just as you say he is.
Micah 7:7 AMP
But as for me, I will look to the Lord and confident in Him I will keep watch; I will wait with hope and expectancy for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.
If we continue to do a bunch of good things and never really learn to wait in God’s presence, we have missed the purpose of the cross. The world knows how to do good things. In fact, because most of us are undone when we come to Christ, we spend most of our days finding answers to our questions and can’t even see the needs around us.
How are you spending your days? Are you firmly convinced that the things you are doing are birthed and anointed by God, or are they just right looking and right sounding events that have little eternal value?
Lord, I want to know you more,
