God Thinking XXII - In His Presence 9

"Here me closely:
God doesn’t let you in His presence like Disney World let’s you in their park.
God doesn’t let you in His presence like Busch Gardens does.
God doesn’t let you in His presence to entertain you or to make you feel good.
God let’s you in His presence to consume you and then to fill you 
You want to be in the presence of God.
You want all the benefits of God.
You want your finances to be increased.
You want your body to be healed.
You want your prayers to be answered.
But not many of you want to be undone.
Why does God want you to go into His presence?  Here this closely.  God knows your future.  He sees all the beautiful moments, those moments of bliss beyond description.  He sees success and peace, and happiness, joy and maturity.
But God sees it all.
  • The failures and broken vows.
  • The moments of pain.
  • The grief of losing a loved one.
  • The wrong turns.
  • The poor choices.
  • The unfulfilled dreams.
  • The lonely days.
God sees you in your old age.

God sees it all.  And because He sees it all, He knows that without Him, you cannot stand it alone.  God wants you to know, He will be there with you in it and through it all.
