Stay fresh for God.
Whet: to trigger or make desire
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. - 1 John 1:7
Am I jealous for God? Do I seek his attention every second of the day or does something else take His place?
I spent the entire week trying to figure out the best way into work. A combination of car, overground train, underground train, tram, bus. Different routes, dealing with disruption, sometimes taking the longer route and sometimes fighting through painful experiences.
Yesterday's journey home from work, took me half the time it normally takes. It was literally impossible to have taken that time. I can't figure out how. But, I did manage to spend time with God the entire journey home... talking with Him, listening as He showed me things.
Here is the amazing thing... I don't remember the commute. All I remember is every second of time alone with God. I don't know how to explain it. It is not that I was not aware of where I was going or what I was doing but it was not the main focus of my attention. God was. It was the best journey home ever since being back in London.
God always provides a way. When I don't know and I just go... This freshness of relationship with the Almight creator of the universe must be maintained at all cost. The minute I lose this hunger for God and rely on my own strength, is when I become stale for Him. I become predictable and too self sufficient to rely on his provision. When I know what's round the corner is the time I no longer need God.
God is jealous for me. If I don't spend time with Him, I think He gets a little upset. I must seek his attention, jealously as if I may never get it again. He will return this jealous attention seeking with time you I will cherish forever. Thank you Abba Father for wanting to spend time with me. Let me guard my relationship with you jealously above all else.
