More of God
"If it is true that you look favorably on me, let me know your ways so I may understand you more fully and continue to enjoy your favor." Exodus 33:13 NLT
Think about these words of Moses. Israel's greatest leader who saw the mighty and wondrous deeds of God first hand. He wasn't satisfied. He wanted more of God.
Listen to Moses' words after God promises him "everything will be fine." Then Moses said, “If you don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place." (Exodus 33:15 NLT)
Moses wasn't content with a easy peaceful life, he wanted to see God.
What about you?
An intimate deep relationship with God is what it is all about. Our salvation is not just about getting out of hell. It's all about enjoying Christ. It's all about fellowship with God through the leading and power of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus tells Martha, "you are worried and upset over all these details! There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10:41, 42 NLT). What did Mary do? All she did was sit at the feet of Jesus.
I believe a lot of things we don't like or don't need happen in our life because we are not close to God.
It's not just about what He can do for you or what you can do for Him. This week don't let yourself get too busy to take time to sit and enjoy at the feet of Jesus.
Reflect on this verse this week... You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! (Isaiah 26:3 NLT).
