Spending Time with Those We Love
As I was thinking about this I realized that my heavenly Father too has always been there for me from the time I became a newborn babe into His family until now, over fifty years later! How He loves me! He always stops and listens to me. But often I am too busy to stop and talk, to tell Him that I love Him, to tell Him all my cares and burdens and leave them at His feet, to listen to Him say “I care for you”, (1Peter 5:7), to know the peace that passes all understanding because I have left my anxieties with Him (Phil 4:7), to ask, seek, knock, and allow Him to give me the good things that He desires to give me (Luke 11:9-13) and especially to give me more of the power of the Holy Spirit upon my life. How thrilled He is to spend time with me, just as I was with my son. How fulfilled I feel when I have laid all my petitions, requests, and cares before Him. How refreshed and strengthened I am for the day’s tasks that lye ahead. And to think that He too is thrilled when I come to Him. It is not something He is just enduring, He is blessed by my presence – oh now that is a hard one to comprehend. How He Loves Me! And You! Have you taken time to go to the throne of grace today and to spend time with the one who loves you the most!
Proverbs 8:34-35 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
Psalms 103:1-5 <<A Psalm of David.>> Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
