“God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful” (1 Corinthians 1:9).
God wants us to regularly spend time with Him-
– talking about our issues and seeking His guidance.
Even though we are offered this remarkable privilege-
– we are reluctant to make that commitment or to carve out any meaningful time with Him.
We treat this offer with complete nonchalance.
Does that even make sense?
Think about it this way.
Suppose there is a voicemail on your phone when you get home from work today.
It’s a call from the Prime Minister’s House.
“The Prime Minister would like to spend some one-on-one time with you this week. Just 1 hour to get to know you a little better and to see what the Prime Minister can do for you.”
Your first thought would be, “This must be a joke. Who is messing with me?”
But what if you found out the call was real?
And the Prime Minister really did want to spend time with you?
My guess is you’d be excited and feel pretty special!
But do you know that any Prime Minister or any President of your country-
– is small in importance and power when compared to God?
Think about how quickly you’d jump to go spend time with the Prime Minister.
Then think about the awesome privilege-
-that the God of the universe continually gives us to spend one-on-one time with Him!
