Post considering Jesus' invitation to "Come with Me by yourselves..." Mark 6:31 / Inspiring post about encountering the divine.  https://adivineencounter.com/a-divine-encounter

“Come WITH ME by yourselves…” (Mark 6:31)

Can words from Jesus get any better than that? What a beautiful divine invitation.

God wants to be with us. That’s it. He has wanted a relationship with us from the beginning of time when He walked with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day. He wants to be with us.

So much so, that He went to extraordinary, sacrificial lengths to restore a relationship we had broken.

So much so, that He sent His own Son to die on a cross…a bloodied, battered bridge that spanned the chasm between  a loving Creator and His rebellious creation.

So much so, that He has chosen to indwell the redeemed with His Spirit.

So much so, that He promises to never leave us nor forsake us.

He wants to be with me… TODAY. And He wants to be with you.

When we’re alone. When we’re in a crowd. When we’re serving others. When we’re at rest. When we’re busily fulfilling work commitments. When we’re caring for our families. When we’re at church. And in every single moment in between… in every single moment of every single day.

When I take time for Him and sit with Him in silence, He meets with me and communes with me and fills me with more of Him. Because He wants to be with me.

When my ears are listening and my heart is paying attention, His still, small voice can be louder and stronger than absolutely anything else in my world. Because He wants to be with me.

And sometimes when I’m not even really trying to hear Him, and I’m going about my busy-ness, taking care of a multitude of tasks for a multitude of people, He has a wonderful way of making Himself heard…making Himself known. Because He wants to be with me.

In big ways and small, in quiet moments and amidst noisy chaos…He seeks me. Because He wants to be with me. I can’t imagine a more exciting or fulfilling life than one lived in constant anticipation of the next divine encounter.

    Beautifully spoken. I had my first quiet time the other day for the first time in a little over one year. I plan to wake up at 530 with Brent every morning so I can get it done before I do anything else and can be distracted by anything else. I’m sure there will be road blocks thrown at me by the Devil and his minions, but I need to get back into the habit and never let it go.

      Hi, Alisha! I’m definitely not a morning person, so morning quiet times are hard for me. BUT I have no doubts that God will honor your intentional efforts to put Him FIRST in your day. I plan to try this soon, too! As soon as my hubby dear goes back to work and our schedule becomes normalized again 🙂
      You encouraged me with this comment! It makes me happy, and I will pray for you as you begin this new routine. Much love! <3

    So rare I’d see on the web blogs that are centered on a deeper relationship with God. God uses ordinary people to reach out to the people He loves. When Christians get to this point and time in their lives, I truly believe that God’s Presence is a manifestation that we developed the love for God with all our hearts, mind and might. Jesus has given us the Holy Spirit of God and He settles in our hearts to give us that magnificent experience of getting closer to the living God. BTW, I found this on Pinterest; thank you for sharing! Though God works in mysterious ways, seeing blogs like yours give me insights that He also uses the internet to touch our hearts! What an awesome God we serve! 🙂

      I’m rejoicing with you in His awesomeness, Naomi! 🙂 It amazes me when I consider the wonderful ways the Internet is being used to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. I’m glad you found me here, and I sincerely thank you for leaving this sweet note. I hope to have more interactions with you in the future!
