I asked myself this question (and not in a condemning way)…
“How many times has God been doing things to get my attention in my life, and yet I wasn’t ‘looking’ to be able to catch it, to be able to see it, to be able to notice it…?”
I pondered this question as I sat in a place of realization –in a place of awe and wonder of how God is doing something right now, in this very moment, to get my attention about something in my life.
I was suddenly able to see the Lord getting my attention this morning, in that very moment –and in that same moment, I began to be able to see some of it that He’s done before in my life as well. All along…
The God of the universe does things to get my attention. ??
How wild is that?
Oh Lord, thank You. I can see that You’re wanting me to take notice of this thing. You are showing me things, You are hand-placing these things within my life to get my attention… and to draw me to You… You’re inviting me into a place of discovery. ?
I’ve been noticing patterns in my life, things the Lord is highlighting.
Sometimes it doesn’t make much since in the moment, why He would be highlighting that thing… but I take notice, I make a note, I think of Him.
And then suddenly it’s like He begins pulling it all together.
He begins stirring me up as He begins to give me understanding.
Awakening something a little deeper, and a little deeper within me.
This morning, He highlighted Daniel 2:22 to me,
“He reveals deep and secret things;
He knows what is in the darkness,
And light dwells with Him.”
I’ve read this verse many, many times, and yet this morning it feels so exciting and fresh –shiny and brand new to me.
Thank You, Lord, for taking the time, and the care to do these things that bring me into this refreshing place of “awe and wonder”… these things that You do to stir me up, these things that get me more and more excited about what You’re doing. This realization that You care about my life, You care about me, and You don’t want me to miss out on what You have for my life. So You’re training me, You’re wooing me, You’re teaching me, You’re constantly drawing me in this most beautiful, refreshing, awakening way.
Thank You, Father. ?
