We live in a beautiful city with all walks of life, nationalities and customs. Our city is fast paced and demanding day to day. It’s easy to get wrapped up in our day to day activities and lose sight of what is important. But in the midst of our surroundings – God wants you. We are designed to have a personal intimate relationship with God (Matthew 22:37).
In our time with Him we are certain to find the way – His truth. He fills our cup when no one else or something can (Jeremiah 33:3). Some things with God are so personal, so intimate, that they cannot be described with words; they can only be felt with the heart. This is how true intimacy with God is; we feel that no one else can really understand the special bond that we share with Him because it’s altogether personal.
I encourage you today to stop what you are doing, disconnect for a moment, listen to your surroundings, visit a park, or worship Him in your secret place. If you block out all distractions and lean in, God will talk to you and reveal His truth over your life. If you find it difficult to connect with God, or feel as though you can’t hear His direction for your life, start praising Him for all He has done. Whether you sing it or say it, express your gratitude like the Word says, ” Entering His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with praise” (Psalm 100:4).
God wants us to keep our eyes on Him. He wants us to stay on course, and where we focus is where we’ll go. (Proverbs 4:25)
