I just want to take a minute and share a prayer I prayed(not because I’m cool or awesome) that rocked my world this morning. This is a prayer I recommend you make a part of your life regularly(even morning & night).
It was simply this:
God I MUST know You, see You, and experience You! I can’t live unless I get to walk with You, talk with You, and know You on new levels in this life! I want to walk with You and know You intimately! I want You as my promise, not a destination. Experiencing You, even for a fading moment, would be worth my life even if You hadn’t promised eternity in paradise….
Alright… There it is… And NO, I’m not referring to some doctrine about eternity!! It’s a heart check and nothing more. We can’t afford to live from our intellect only any more. We MUST become passionate for THE ONE, and not lose sight of Him for His promises!! I overstate things in my talking with Him to get fruit in my heart(ex. I would choose a moment with You God over an eternity in paradise). Obviously He’s there with us or there would be no eternity and no paradise! It’s a love language, and I recommend you start selling all of you for Him!!
I recently read a quote from Fancis Chan to leave you with: “As I see it, a lukewarm Christian is an oxymoron; there’s no such thing. To put it plainly, churchgoers who are “lukewarm” are not Christians. We will not see them in heaven.” -Crazy Love
