Today, life is all about doing things as quickly as possible. Nobody has ‘time’ to relax and enjoy the finer details of life. We just want to get started with doing something and finish it, at lightning speed if possible. The sad part about this is that we tend to repeat this same attitude even in our relationships with people and with our heavenly Father. We seem to have very little or no time to sit in His presence and talk to Him.
Is your prayer time a rush-to-the-finish-line kind of prayer? Do you feel a sudden surge in the level of relief when you finally wrap up your prayers with “… in Jesus name! Amen…”, just to advance on to your next most important activity? Do you set aside your priorities to spend time with Him?
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
God doesn’t want to come into your life, your house, your family, your job, your future, just for a momentary chat. He says in His word that He wants to dine with us. He wants to have a good long relaxed conversation with His child and not a “Hi… bye!” encounter. While the world may celebrate speed, God invites us to hit the brakes, slow down and bask in His presence for a spiritual feast. He yearns for an everlasting fellowship with His children. Make sure you make enough time everyday to dine with your Father in heaven.
