Good Morning my friends,
Take your mind to God for rest and renewal. Let Him infuse His Presence into all of your thoughts. As your mind stops racing, your body will relax and this will allow you to regain awareness of Him. This awareness is vital to your spiritual well being. Spiritually speaking it’s your lifeline. There are more than four dimensions in this world. In addition to the three dimensions of space and the one of time, there is also the dimension of openness to God’s Presence. This dimension transcends ALL the others. It gives you glimpses of heaven while you still here on earth. This was part of God’s original plan when He designed mankind. Adam and Eve talked to God in the Garden of Eden before they were expelled. God wants you to walk with Him in the garden of your heart, where He has taken up permanent residence.
“Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord.”(Psalm 89:15)
When life gets busy and trials become difficult our first tendency is to ask for others to pray for us and we for us go to God in prayer. We see it happen in most major tragedies like Sept. 11th. I heard several reports that after the Sept 11th bombing of the a World Trade Centers that the following Sunday that churches had their largest attendance in over 4 decades. Church goers & non-church goers flocked to churches all-over the US and church attendance remained heavy for the next several weeks & months but as time passed by attendance began to drop.
When things go wrong, we flock to God but once a bit of normalcy creeps back into our lives we go back to our old ways.. I see prayer request daily on FB.. It is not by coincidence that we turn to God when tragedy happens.. That’s by God’s design. There’s something about going into His Presence and seeking comfort & shelter in your time of need and our nation as a whole is no different. I often wonder why God would want to come and comfort a mourning nation that has turned it’s back on Him.. A nation that has become so veil & evil but then I’m reminded that we still have a lot people that believe in calling upon The Name of The Lord and God will NEVER turn His back on His people. Those believers know that only God can & will deliver the comfort and shelter to our shattered people & nation during our time of need.
“Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.” (Genesis 3:8)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU.. Turn to God for renewal but not just when tragedy strikes..
I hope you have a WONDERFUL day… Blessing & much love…D
Live your life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
