I admire stories of people who have walked closely with God. Abraham was a friend of God. Enoch walked with God. Jacob wrestled with God. David was a man after God’s own heart. Then there are those who I have been privileged to meet, who have chosen to obey God with all that they have got, forsaking all others. God’s footsteps are seen all over their lives.
I realize that He is the same God and intimacy with Him is not reserved for a select few. He desires intimacy with me. Many are the times that I have rejected His invitation, then I sometimes wonder why we are not as close.
I have become content with the same old, yet His mercies are NEW every morning; great is His faithfulness. Honestly, what happens is that once in a while I accept His invitation, then I walk in awe of Him for that one encounter for days on end; forgetting that I can have that encounter daily, if only I would let Him come in.
He desires intimacy with you.
Have you accepted His invitation? What is holding you back?
Are you still walking in awe of something He did weeks ago while ignoring His current invitation?
His mercies are new every morning. Don’t waste any more precious moments. Accept His invitation and let Him take you on an adventure.
The prayer of the day is:
I thank you for seeking me out. Please forgive me for the times that I have ignored your call to walk closer with you all because I was comfortable or scared. I am so humbled that you do not give up on me, you still pursue me.
I know your grace is sufficient. Sometimes I am afraid of the unknown. Lord, I believe that you are more than enough, that you are able to sustain me; help my unbelief. I desire to walk on uncharted waters with you. To be intimate with you. To grow deeper in you, experience a new side of you.
Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders, let me walk upon the waters wherever you would call me. Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, and my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior
I am yours, and you are mine.
In Jesus name I pray and believe,
The song of the day is:
