Good morning, DearHeart.
As a child of God, I believe God allows things to happen to get our attention. When we get too caught up being earthlings instead of spiritual beings, He nudges you and me with an issue and says, “I just want to spend time with you, child .” When we are doing life with too casual of a spirit, we become spectators, we forget to have a grateful heart, we forget to refuel with Him, we allow rat race business to consume the space where we would enter His courts with Thanksgiving, and we fail to position our hearts to separate ourselves. Do you know why God stands at the door of your heart and knocks? Because, God is on the outside of the door … He gave US the key. He won’t open the door, He must be invited in. When we get too comfortable we fail to invite Him in … after a while you no longer hear the knock. You get used to doing life on your own terms.
You need to know that you are a vessel of His glory. The time you set aside just to sit with Him is the time He pours in more of His Glory to
radiate through you,
and light joy in you.
“For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;”
2 Corinthians 4:6-7 NASB
