We Are Called to Enjoy God
Yet for us there is [only] one God, the Father, Who is the Source of all things and for Whom we [have life], and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through and by Whom are all things and through and by Whom we [ourselves exist]. ó1 Corinthians 8:6
We need to get comfortable with God. I donít mean we should be disrespectful, but that we donít have to be afraid of Him. In fact, I believe that the ultimate call of every believerís life is to enjoy God. We are called to enjoy the Father because He is life, and we canít truly enjoy life if we donít enjoy God.
Sometimes we donít enjoy Godís presence because we get all wrapped up in serving Him, discovering what gifts we have, and spending all our time working at our ministry. This happened to me. About five years into my ministry, God had to make me hit the brakes because I had become so proud of the work I was doing for Him that I was no longer enjoying Him.
We have to be careful when we start getting proud of ourselves because of all the things weíre doing. Thatís not what Godís after. As our Father, He just wants us to know and enjoy Him.
So let me ask you, are you proud of your works today? Or are you truly enjoying God?
Prayer Starter: Father God, I want to enjoy You. Fellowshipping with You and being in Your presence is so wonderful. I lay aside my pride and humble myself before You so I can find my purpose and joy in You alone.
