Psalm 63:1 says” O God, you are my God, earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you, my body longs for you, in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
Let me ask you a question:
Do you invite Jesus to the places you go to? Or do you keep Him at home so He won’t see what you do? God wants us to invite Him along. I could imagine how the conversation would go.
Jesus: Good Morning my child
You: Good Morning
Jesus: What are you going to do today?
You: Not sure Lord
Jesus: You haven’t talked to me really this morning, is something on your mind?
You: No, Lord everything is okay
Jesus: If you say so
You: Lord I got a busy schedule today can we do this later, when I get home?
Jesus: If that is what you want
You: OH, I hate this day, so much to do and little time to get all done, wish I never gotten out of bed, God sees me here in a mess why won’t He come and help me?
You: I just need people to leave me alone today.
You: I think I go shopping that normally cheers me up yeah, spend money.
You: Oh gosh there is that woman from church I am not up to talking I hope she doesn’t see me, whew thank God, she didn’t.
Holy Spirit: I come to give you peace my child
You: Who is that talking, I don’t see no one
You: I get peace when I am away from people doing my own thing, well I better get back to work lunch is over
Boss: You are late and we have gotten behind. I am going to need you to stay late today,
You: I can’t stay late today I have other engagements
Boss: Either you stay late or you can consider yourself fired.
You: Now what am I to do.
Holy Spirit: I come to give you peace
You: Okay, what do you want from me?
Jesus: My daughter when you got up this morning you didn’t spend time with me to get your instructions concerning today. I sent the Holy Spirit to speak to you but you ignored Him. I even sent a woman from your church your way to help you but you hid from her.
You: I know Lord, I am sorry, forgive me, what can I do now, to make it right.
Jesus: You must work for your boss remember in my word I said obey those who are over you, you are to work as unto the Lord, as far as your other plans they will come later, I will mend that bridge for you
Like so many of us this is how our conversation at times goes when we don’t first seek Jesus to get our instructions. If you don’t start your day off with seeking the Father it’s not too late to go and make it right, talk to Him now, even if you are at work go into the bath room and make it right, you need to know what Jesus has to say concerning you this day.
