Thirsty For His Presence

Matt. 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.

In these days of being so busy many people sometimes forget how our Father God wants to be involved in our lives.  Just as a good earthly father wants to spend time with his children, our heavenly Father wants to spend time with us.

In the late nineties, I founded a company out of my bedroom.  It was a lonely start as I had gone from building the business of America’s largest telecommunications company in Japan to a one-man show starting out of my home.  However I knew in my heart that God had called me to this work.  As I first started out, there could have been a lot of anxious anticipation as to how we would live. However by God’s Spirit I knew where I was going.  I knew God had a plan of great success for us.

I remember my little children coming into my home-office just wanting to see their papa.  They wanted to play on the floor in my office.  They just wanted to be with their daddy.  It was hard for me to say no and I enjoyed them coming in but I tried to focus on my business.  Towards the end of the workday I would have more time to focus on them and I loved it.

God is clearly the same with His children.  He loves it when we make time to fellowship with Him.  Like little children we are anxiously waiting at the door to get into His presence.  Make time daily to spend time with Him, the benefits are amazing.

Is. 40:31 Yet those who wait for the LORD
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.
