“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10 (NIV)
Meeting With You
Do you want to know me? Do you want to live in an intimate relationship with me? Do you want to know my will and walk in my ways? Do you want to go and do what is pleasing in my sight? You know me. You know the desires of my heart. You know the thoughts of my mind. You know the words of my mouth. Nothing about me can be hidden from you. You know me better than I know myself. That’s true. Why is it then, that you are asking me these questions if you already know how I will answer them? You know the answer to that question without asking me. Answering these questions is a way for me to express my worship to you. It is good for me to state my intentions. It is good to remind myself of the desires of my heart, thoughts of my mind and words of my mouth. That’s right.
With all that is within me I want to know you. There is no higher priority in my life than to come to know you. I want to live in an intimate relationship with you because I love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I want to follow you to wherever you lead me. I want to do whatever you ask of me. I want to live my life with and for you. It is my joy to do what is pleasing in your sight. In every way, I want my life to be an act of worship of you. I want my life to be a living sacrifice to you. But, it is no sacrifice to serve you fully because I love you completely. Yet, it is my prayer that you will fan the flames of my love of you. I want to burn white hot in my devotion to you. Keep drawing me closer. Keep helping me to walk nearer.
What is helping you to come to know me? What will fan the flames of your love for me? What will cause you to burn white hot in your devotion to me? Coming to you will make me able to know you. Being in your presence will fan the flames of my love for you. Receiving all that you have for me will cause me to burn white hot in my devotion to you. Yes, come to me. Yes, be still before me. Receive all that I have for you. Then you will know me. Then you will have the desire of your heart to live with and for me.
Father, help me to slow down. Change the pace of my life. I don’t want the busyness of life to hinder my coming to you. Meeting with you is the priority of my life. I want to be still before you so that I can know you and your will. Amen
