Busy, busy, busy! Our lives are so filled with work, children’s activities, frenzied, hectic schedules, just getting through another day. Jesus advised His apostles in Mark 6:31 “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest awhile.” We are commanded to “Be still and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10
A number of years ago I was given a book by Charles Swindoll, “Intimacy with the Almighty.” Many things in that little book made an impact on my life, but one statement that Swindoll quoted from A.W. Tozer touched me so deeply that it led me to a journey of a deeper intimacy with God. “May not the inadequacy of much of our spiritual experience be traced back to our habit of skipping through the corridors of the Kingdom like children in the market place, chattering about everything, but pausing to learn the true value of nothing,”
“It is well said, No person can expect to make progress in holiness, who is not often and long with God.” Andrew Murray.
Jeremiah 33:3 “Call on me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things that you know not.”
Psalm 26:8 “Lord, I love the habitation of Your presence, and where Your Glory dwells.”
Psalm 5:3 “In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord I wait for You to speak to my heart.”
What an awesome thing to think that our heavenly Father welcomes us into His presence where we can have the sweet satisfying companionship of our Lord. Psalm 27:8 “Come and talk with Me, O my people.” And my heart responds, “Lord I am coming.”
Lord, I do not want to miss those marvelous moments with You.
