Intimacy With God

“He has showed you what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)

How can we integrate our multi-faceted personality into our true self, whose entire aim is to walk humbly with our God? Lack of time is not the enemy, but rather a lack of enthusiasm. Do we want intimacy with God? Sometimes it is easier to carry out the second greatest commandment, “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”, and serve at soup kitchens, hospitals, prisons, etc. , but ignore the first part which is to “love your God with all of your heart, mind, and strength.” (Matthew 22:36-40)

A half hour daily devotion time is a good beginning to a life of silent prayer that can become our spiritual center. Our goal is to discover His glory and splendor in the most mundane tasks. Our new outlook will spill over into every area of our life and the love of God will impact everyone we meet. Our direction is no longer comes from earthly entanglements; it becomes heaven-sent.

Our pace is set by the Creator Himself. He prompts us through His Holy Spirit to say “yes” or “no” to calls for service, but never complicates our schedule with unnecessary projects. If we keep our focus God-centered, at the end of the day we will be able to lie down in peace, knowing that we are guided by an invisible hand that will sustain us in all things. (Judy Whittaker)
