The book of John chapter 1, verse 12 tells us that those who have believed and received Jesus have the right to become children of God.
When I think of my parents, I have the habit of giving them total priority, because often in the rush of everyday life, we can’t spend much time together. But when we have that free weekend or holiday, I put them ahead of every appointment, because they are my priority.
During this week the Lord led me to reflect on this. We are children of God. This is our identity which was designated by the Father himself. But have we given Him due attention?
Me and the father
I once saw the following reflection: imagine that God is by your side physically, every day, from the moment you wake up until you go to sleep. Your day goes by and He is there doing everything with you at ALL times. He’s trying to talk about something, about how you should do something, or he’s just wanting to talk about random everyday topics. However, every time He tries to speak, you completely ignore Him.
I can imagine how much it must hurt to be ignored like that and I confess it hurt me even more when I realized that this is basically what we do every day. We ignore His Presence and His attempts to speak to us. We haven’t given due priority to His voice.
God is a Father who wants to spend time with His children, who are always too busy with their jobs, studies, for them to spend quality time with Him.
On that day, I invite you to reflect with me: what has been your priority? Is the Lord the one you put ahead of everything? Or do you keep putting your social life, work, and study ahead of Him?
God misses you, misses your voice talking to Him. So stop for a moment, close your eyes and talk to Him. Tell us about your day or anything you prefer. Just make it a routine and the priority of your days.
God bless you,
