To Gaze at Him

“‘A glimpse of God will save you. To gaze at Him will sanctify you.”
Manley Beasley

If there is one thing I have learned over the last year it is this… I wished I had spent more time gazing at God. Really… I can’t think of any better place to be. In the song, Set A Fire… Will Regan sings… “there’s no place I’d rather be…” and it’s true! For it’s in God presence I am whole and complete. I am no longer clumsy, I don’t have 2 left feet in His presence. I am right in Him… and it is there I feel His embrace.

Yet…

Life has a way of being a distraction…

None the less… I pray that my heart will be quicken to this truth. That it would over-take all other desires… for whatever this world offers is temporary. Today is a new day! God’s mercies are new… it’s time to draw near to God.

12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. 14 I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity; I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive. – Jeremiah 29:12-14 New King James Version (NKJV)

As I read that passage… tears well within my eyes, for it is a truth that fills my heart as this glorious, new day begins! Come and join me…

Listen to this track as spend a few moments in worship…
