What if: you set aside your preconceived notions and thought about nothing but Him for 5 minutes.
Could you do it?
Draw near to God and He will Draw near to you! - James 4:8
During His time on earth Jesus healed, He taught, He fed.... but there were the few, the quiet ones, in the background who were just there to be in His Presence. We are created in the image of a masterful Creator who longs for us to want nothing more from Him than to dwell in His Presence. The Creator of Love and Grace wants to draw near to His beloved and grace-begotten children.
Think John 1:14 "The Word became flesh [just to] dwell among us..."
Can you even get your mind around that one phrase. He came to dwell. among. us.
Sometimes I don't even want to dwell among myself --but the Creator of the Universe wants to dwell with me. Wow, that just blows my mind.
Dwell in His Presence today, just for a bit and it might just blow your mind!
