You Define the Depth
Have you ever felt compelled to get all spiffied up, put on your best duds, or perhaps slide into a nice warm jacket, then realize you have no destination in mind, ‘all dressed up and no where to go.’
Our relationship with God is like that at times, we read our Bibles, have our devotions, say our prayers, yet … that is as far as we get. I am guilty of this. It is as if I am waiting for God to make the first move. James says clearly “Come near to God and He will come near to you.” (4:8)
One of God’s strongest attributes is that of His patience. He longs for us to come to Him, He is waiting. The principle is the same in all relationships, if you want it to be strong and deep, you have to cultivate it, put time and energy into it … particupate IN it.
So today, enjoy your relationship with Jesus, YOU define the depth, call out to Him, seek Him, enter in, come close to Him. Don’t merely stand out in the cold and allow just a few drops of God to fall on you, DIVE in and get Him all over you!
