The great business of life is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. The Bible tells us that man was created to bring Him glory. That is our purpose, our duty; and what Jesus has redeemed us for. Does that sound like your experience of the Christian life? Or have we, in all our good intentions and ambitions, misunderstood our assignment, leaving us stuck in a loop of endless and ever-changing pursuits that can never satisfy?
Are you in a season of burning with passion, calling down fire from heaven, or huddled under a tree, broken and burnt out, wishing for God to end everything? Like Elijah, many of us would’ve gone through days where we’re burning and days where we’re experiencing burnout. Can we however, walk and live in a manner where the days of burning wildly outnumbers our days of burnout?
There may be moments in our lives where we wonder and ask God if He sees us. Is it pure coincidence or chance that events happen in our lives? Did Blind Bartimaeus randomly stumble into the Messiah’s path? Did the servant girl at Cana witness Jesus’ first miracle by chance? God’s heart for us is pure intentional and He continues to seek us out. Will you respond to Him by saying, “Lord, here I am!”
There’s a new and fresh outpouring in the horizon, and a beautiful fellowship that we can enjoy with the Holy Spirit. How can we build a deeper friendship with Him and not just have temporal encounters? More than how He manifests Himself, WHO is the Holy Spirit to you?
God is the God of the many and is also the God of the one. When we look at the life of Jesus, we see how He feeds and speaks to the masses. But He also always stops for the one. It’s easy to lose sight of how much He loves us uniquely and individually.
