1 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
2 So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,
beholding your power and glory. Psalm 63:1 – 2 ESV
Time spent with the Lord is never wasted. Even if all we do is sit with Him in absolute silence. Regardless what others might think, or how we ourselves sometimes feel, that time will prove to be most valuable.
Everything becomes clear when we sit in God’s Presence. We begin to understand who we are. We also begin to see Him as He truly is. We begin to discover the truth of our relationship with Him. While sitting in His Presence we also discover those things that keep our relationship from being anything short of intimate. We discover light in which we can walk with clear vision.
Proceeding from that place of being with the Lord is what causes us to rightly relate to the world around us. We begin to look at things in light of who God is and who we are through our relationship with Him in Christ. In other words, we begin to see things in the light of truth. This causes us to respond to life with a wisdom not born of this world. This wisdom, in turn, will open the door for others to begin to inquire for more insight for themselves.
This must be the outcome of time spent with the Lord. Otherwise we are merely going through the motions and deceiving ourselves. Genuinely spending time with the Lord is what will keep us perpetually living in the Reign.
