How long has it been since we took time out, just to sit silently in His presence to catch a glimpse of the one who is truly awesome and incomprehensible
Here are my thoughts of when we recognise God's greatness.
Not to be tempted to analyse Him and reduce Him to our manageable terms.
Also we must not try to manipulate Him and His will, or try to explain Him and His ways.
Thinking carefully about that for a moment, how many times does God have to tell us ("For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts" - Isaiah 55:9), before we actually get it?
How often must Jesus explain that He's the good shepherd and we're the sheep. That He's the vine and we're the branches, that He's the way, the truth and the life, before we kneel down in surrender and say, have your own way Lord?
If Jesus the son of God found it necessary to say to His Father "Not my will, but your will be done". Wouldn't it be wise for us to pray those words too every day?
How long has it been since we took time out, just to sit silently in His presence to catch a glimpse of the one who is truly awesome and incomprehensible.
As written in Job 22:21-23 Now acquaint yourself with him and be at peace, thereby good will come to you, receive, please instruction from his mouth, and lay up his words in your heart. If you return to the almighty, you will be built up, you will remove iniquity far from your tents.
So to conclude is it our desire to really know and have a closer personal relationship with God the Father? If the answer is yes, it won't just happen, we must give and make Him the priority by acquainting ourselves to Him on a daily basis and we won't be disappointed.
As it states in James 4:8 Draw near to God and he will draw near to you, cleanse your hands you sinners and purify your hearts you double minded.
