Don't Keep Him a Secret!
God desires to reveal Himself, His plans, His destiny to all who believe in Him. He longs to hear from us, and for us to listen to what He points out in our hearts. He wants us to trust Him, to have faith in His way, and His plan for us. Do we trust God like Joshua, Daniel, Moses and Esther did? Do we believe that our temple, our soul is where the Holy Spirit dwells? Approach God with reverence, bow down to the King. Let us take our shoes off knowing that we stand on holy ground, the earth that He created for our pleasure. When we remember who Jesus is, and what He has done in us, and who we were when we met the King of Kings, that should be enough to have us bow before Him with sincere gratitude. Think about all the ways that God reveals himself to us in surprisingly intimate ways. Do tears roll down your face when you sit quietly in reflection of all He has done for you. Do goose bumps suddenly prickle while singing praise? IF we are aware of His Presence, IF we go to Him and confess our grievances, the edge we feel, the weariness, our anger. IF we cry out to Him and seek Him above all else...He desires to meet us there and He will happily reveal Himself to those who listen and wait. (1 Cor 1:26) "Brothers think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong." "He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things---and the things that are not---to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him. It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us Wisdom from God---that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: 'Let him who boasts boast in the Lord." Now is the time to go tell somebody what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for you! "YET WHO KNOWS whether YOU have come to the Kingdom of God for such a time as this... a crashing economy, a weakend Haiti, a flood, a fire, a devasting disease...DO NOT keep JESUS a secret!
