Every Moment

mar-10“The King is enthralled by your beauty; honor Him for He is your Lord.” Psalm 45:11 (NIV)

We’ve all faced moments of desperation.  You know, those times when we’ve fallen on our face before Almighty God, because life is out of our control.  Our minds can no longer comprehend the threat of the unknowns.  Our hearts can no longer contain the pain coursing through our veins ripping us apart. We’re quick to fall on our knees, and we’re eager to be in His presence listening carefully for every word when our world is falling apart. Promises slide carelessly from our mouths to God when our heart is breaking.

Wonder how God feels when we cry out to Him in the midst of a crisis but fail to recognize how much we need Him every waking moment?  Does He look down in disgust shaking His head remembering when we were too busy to even spend a few moments in His presence?  Does He recall our previous actions that were contrary to His Word?  Does He reflect on our self-reliance and determination to need no one?  Does He struggle in His heart to love us or walk away giving us what we deserve?

Despite our independence and neglect, God is eager for us to come into His presence.  No questions asked, no lengthy parental speech just love poured out so that we might see Him in all of His glory.  Opening our eyes, enlarging our view, revealing more and more of Himself to us so that we can soar in the power of His love.

Busyness and distractions will always seek to lure us away.  Our list of things to do will always grow.  Interruptions occur.  Our inbox will fill up.  Text messages can wait.  Facebook and Twitter will still be there tomorrow.  Prioritizing our time with God will always serve us well – He’s patiently waiting to give us His undivided attention.

“Father, we are so undeserving of Your attention and yet we are always on Your mind. From morning to night, You wait to hear our voice calling out to You.”

 

For His Glory
