How sweet are simple conversations with the Divine that go on and on throughout all our waking moments, day and night. As we get to know Him, our hearts’ desire becomes the Father – first and foremost. Out of this priority comes unceasing conversations that dominate our lives, rain or shine.
You have said, “Seek my face.” My heart says to you, “Your face, Lord, do I seek.” Psalm 27:8
The greatest test of our unadulterated loyalty to the Lord is the capacity to be above the care of the world and seek His kingdom first (Matt. 6:33). When our mind remains steadfast on Him and Him alone, the blessing of His face shining upon us is most satisfying. In such a state, the devil’s tricks don’t easily distract us. Therefore, we don’t sever our lifeline to our heavenly Father whatsoever.
We love simple conversations with God, for it sustains us to remain in Him. On a daily basis, we learn to let go and come to Him, as we are, in simplicity and humility. It is a love affair with the Divine that nourishes our soul and heals our inner being. It is like dancing, if I may say, moving in rhythm with Him every step of the way, now and into eternity.
Prayer is not supposed to be a business transaction that needs to be settled only in a specified period of time. Rather, prayer is an uninterrupted love conversation with our Father that helps us to know Him better and get us into His perfect rest in the process.
It hurts our loving Father when we choose to forfeit the blessing of communing with the Lord Jesus Christ and wander in the wilderness. God’s bountiful grace is available, if we just turn our face to Him to help us live out a deeper walk with God.
