Time For God: Week 3

Written by Paul Beckingham

Thank you for making Time For God a daily priority in your life. As you meet with God, listen for His voice. He speaks into the particularities of your situation.

God is not a faceless textbook. His love is deeply personal, fully resonant with your desires and needs. He understands you. This was the experience of the authors of the Songs of Ascent; let it also be yours as you join their Pilgrim journey of faith.

Part of the mystery of God exists within a theological tension. God is transcendent; He is altogether other than you are. Yet, God is immanent; He is near and knowable to the extent that you can—and need—to know Him.

In the coming of Jesus, God fully identifies with your human condition. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15). His mercy is open to you.

Jesus enables you, a finite human being, to know all you can about our infinite God. His fullness is beyond measure. Your discovery path begins and remains a personal relationship with the Triune God. You start by trusting Jesus as Lord; you continue by trusting Jesus as Lord; you finish as you started.

Jesus reveals to you our Father God. He communicates in words you understand. As the Babe of Bethlehem—the Man of Calvary—He speaks in the simple language of your humanness. Jesus reveals an unknowable God; He is fluent in a dialect of love-spoken-in-truth. His primary speech is His Word; you discover it in the Holy Bible.

By making use of Time For God, you daily seek the God who speaks. Expect Him to speak personally. Through prayer, you join a heavenly conversation. You unite with the eternal dialogue of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Catch the whisper of His love.

Pour out your heart to God. Trust that He hears and answers your prayers. God wants more than simply to provide the objects you request. He invites you to participate in a relationship with Him. Our Loving God desires that you would come to know Him more. A good beginning is to daily meet with Him.

He alone is worthy of your worship. Prayers might start with requests; spending time with God develops a richer relationship with the Lover of Your Soul.

I pray that Time For God might help deepen a trusting friendship with the Living God. May you discern that His love is far beyond the measure of your daily concerns. Invite the Spirit of God move to you forward in your Pilgrimage of faith. Walk with love in the light of His truth.
