God Thinking LXXXVIII - The Presence Of The LORD 7

"After you have been alone with God, and seen His majesty - the preaching of the Word becomes vibrant and alive. 

What once seemed boring and unimportant, becomes fresh and delightful. 

What once seemed tough and obscure becomes easy and clear. 

You see with excitement the little gems the preacher carefully extracted from the mine of God’s heart.

After you have been alone with God, you get hungry for more, because God gives you an insatiable appetite for Him.  His ways don’t look so stringent and difficult. 

His ways start to look good to you, full of liberty and easy to accommodate.

After you have been alone with God, you see things differently.  You once looked around at Church and didn’t see much, just the same people week after week, seldom moved and seldom seeing more than what meets the eye - but after a few moments aware of the presence of God - those people come alive with something to offer and a special importance, as if they were superstars or presidents, kings and queens, friends and allies.

You see more clearly.
You see ahead.
You start to envision yourself forward and it looks real good.
You hear more succinctly the voice of God.

Your understanding is widened.

Your spiritual eyes begin to see beyond yourself, deeper and wider, further and clearer.

You sense God at more junctures.
Your awareness of the presence of God is more frequent.

You begin to think only good thoughts about God and His kingdom, His ways and His plan. 

When you meet God alone, He reveals His Son and purifies your perception of the Holy Spirit.

God wants you to get alone with Him to reveal to you true power.  All of God’s creation comes short of fulfilling you after you meet Him alone.  After a real-time interview with God, computer games, X-box, Game Boy, Game Cube, Ps-3, DSL, T1, TV, Cable all wane. They all come short.

Nothing compares to a God alone experience - no adventure, no thrill, no roller coaster, no bungy-jumping, not parasailing, not NASCAR, space travel, mind travel, not even love, even begins to thrill like a God infusion."
