Thought for the week

An Appointment with God
The Lord God called to the man, "Where are you?"
In addition to walking in harmony with God, Amos 3:3 provides another nuance of meaning. It also gives the idea of keeping an appointment. Did you know that you have an appointment with God? You do. It is there, written in eternity. In fact, God wants to meet with you on a regular basis.

I wonder just how many times each day that God wants to speak to us, but He can't get a word in edgewise. The Lord might say, "I have wanted to talk to you for a long time, but you are too busy. This morning I wanted to talk to you, but you didn't have any time for Me. You read the newspapers and watched TV and talked on the phone. You never opened the Word. You never prayed. At lunch I tried to say something, but your prayer was so fast. Later I tried to talk with you. You have been so busy. You have an appointment with Me. Why don't you keep it?"

Remember how Adam had an appointment with God every day in the Garden of Eden? He would hear the voice of the Lord in the Garden in the cool of the evening. One day Adam missed that appointment because of sin. God said to Adam, "Where are you?"

I wonder if the Lord would say that to some of us each day: "Where are you? Where were you? I have been looking for you. I wanted to speak to you. I want you to walk with Me, and I want to walk with you."

Just imagine, the Creator of the universe wants to spend time with you! Is there any appointment that is worth keeping more than this one? G.L.

Thumbs up

When someone fails to 'spend-time-with-the-Lord' the only reason for them would be: "They got a better offer" but how can anyone possibly receive a better offer than 'spending time with the Lord'!




Thanks Ken

A few of us at work started having a daily devotion at work each morning. It's amazing how much better our day goes when we do that.

Good word Ken. I am said to say it, but I have dropped off my devotional time with the Lord in the mornings. Those were some of the sweetest times in my life. Getting busy is no excuse I know. But its so easy to be distracted from the things that matter most.

Thank you for this reminder. I will strive to get back into my times with my Father.

And Kima, you may get to, one day be the light that someone may desperately need, because they see your witness through your daily devotions.

We find time for the thing that are important to us....so what does that say about how we have our priorities set?
