Depending on your theology beliefs, there is an amazing mystery in the bible where it states, Draw near to me and I will draw near to you. We must meditate on the words in the bible, for me this is all to real at the moment. Life somehow since our 4th child has hit a speed button, that sometimes goes faster then my mind can even comprehend, coupled with a rapidly growing business and calls on my heart from God to start a church, its seems like I am driving a car at 300ks an hour, and trying to stop and watch my life as it goes by.
A few nights ago I lay on the grass outside my home and looked up a cloudy sky, I prayed and all of a sudden like a perfectly timed curtain at a show, the clouds cleared to reveal the true creative nature of our God that unfortunately sometimes takes a back seat in our super car going 300 ks an hour. The God that created all of this and one day will hang the universe up like a dirty sheet, waits with love, for his children to admire and talk to him. “Thou has ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse; thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with on chain of thy neck” Songs of Solomon 4:9. Preached by the preacher Paul Washer this is a love letter from Jesus to us his Bride. When we finally pull up our super car and lay on the green grass and look up at Jesus his heart beats faster, he is ravished by us. When my wife smiles at me my heart beats faster and for a moment its just her and I. The bible says if we being evil know how to give good gifts, how much more will the father in heaven give. Another preacher by the name of Allan Wills says that if you cant pray now on earth or spend time with him and long for his worship and presence, how are you going to spend eternity with him.
James 4:8 NKJV “Draw near to me and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts you double minded.
Are you hurting and broken? are you tired and weary? feel like life is going to fast? feel out of control? tap the brakes and drop everything. Draw near to God, hes not a God that lies, the bible says that every star shall fall to earth before one word I have spoken is untrue. He is not a God the lies but a God that will draw near to you. Whats your excuse? don’t be like the foolish virgins.
Be ready. He loves you.
Bless you Michael McDowell
