What does this mean? It means that the world we live in is not all there is. There is another reality that encompasses our everyday life but is far more mysterious. That is the reality that we call the Kingdom of God. Are you aware of it? Is this concept meaningful to you? Maybe not. We get so used to taking things at face value..to seeing things superficially.. that we miss out on the amazing things that God is doing. We fail to see how He is at work in our lives on a daily basis..at this very moment..in our present circumstances..wherever we are.
He is not at a distance watching us live these lives..He is here with us..actively involved in every single thing that happens. His plan is unfolding for us..one day at a time. God is right where you are. He does not miss a thing. He is attentive to your voice..Are you attentive to His? He desires to connect with you..to speak to you..to reveal truth to your heart. We forget all this and live as though He is only found inside the Bible or in our church service on Sunday. We limit our own ability to experience Him by making Him too small and too far away.
Do you need something to happen between you and God? Do you want to have a deeper more meaningful relationship with Him? Are you tired of the same old life? Sick of being stuck? Tell Him. Of course nothing will happen unless you are ready to take the next step. It may be your move..your choice that is keeping you from experiencing the abundant life. God is always ready to move closer to us..He is not slow in reaching out to us..but we may need to take a risk..to move our of our comfort zones and decide that He is worth it. Is He asking you to do something difficult? To trust Him in the dark..don’t be afraid. He will not let you down.
“The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right. O Lord of Heaven’s Armies, what joy for those who trust in you.”
