Among Christians, some persons have a closer intimacy with God than others…. they seem to be in very close touch with Him, and may even be envied by others (who may ask such a person for guidance as to God’s wishes in some circumstance).
How is this possible ? Is it that God has favorites ?
NO…. it is we who determine the degree of intimacy with Him that we enjoy.
We are at this moment as close to God as we really chose to be.
True, there may be times when we would like to know Him better… but when it comes to the point, we are not prepared to pay the price involved.
The qualifying conditions are more stringent than we are prepared to meet; and so we settle for a less demanding level of Christian living.
Today’s post comes from a book “Enjoying Intimacy with God” by J. Oswald Sanders (moody press)
Jeremiah 29:13 “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart”
Prayer for Today:
Loving Heavenly Father, You are so Wonderful…. we worship you with our Praises and Thanksgiving…. Thanks for taking care of us today. Amen
