Are you teetering on the fence? Positioned between God exists and I love the Lord with all my heart, soul, mind and strength. Where do you fall?
There was a long time in my life where God was just a supernatural being to me. Someone I prayed to. Someone I tried to please. Someone who was very far away.
God was there… At least, I was pretty sure. But why was he so distant? Why didn’t I really know him? Why didn’t I ever hear him?
Was it perhaps because I was undecided? Perhaps I wanted the benefits of God, going to heaven, saying I was a Christian. But did I truly give him my all?
There’s no way. James 4:8 Draw close to God and God will draw close to you. A dear daddy won’t be far away when his child comes seeking time and relationship with him.
When we chose to spend time with him that’s when he knows we want friendship with our Creator. You love your family so you spend time with them, right? How else will God know that we desire him?
Relationships are meant to be two-sided. It’s not just me praying, seeking, asking. Or just God desiring, seeking, calling. It’s two-way communication. I pray. He listens… He calls. I answer.
As time went by God became this Father to me. One I cry on, cling to and enjoy. It doesn’t matter where he calls me or whatever comes my way…I chose Him. I chose Him above all else.
David wrote in Psalm 119:113 I hate those who are undecided about you, but my choice is clear – I love your law.
Are you undecided? I have some terrible news. But I only can speak truth. It’s what I’m called to do.
Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’
Are you on the fence? Don’t be undecided. Make your decision today. It’s not too late! God is merciful and forgiving.
Joshua 24:15 …then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.
Blessings and love!
