Who or what is your Go To? Is it a cup of coffee or a call to a friend…a chocolate bar or a shopping spree? Where do you find comfort or solace in the midst of the intensity of daily living. Where do you unwind? Where do you seek refreshment and courage for your next step?
As you ponder these Go To questions consider this: God wants to be your Go To. Every aspect of God’s character; every letter of His Word; every longing of His heart bids you to rush to His side. Listen anew to Jesus’ words… Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30). Sounds to me like a cup of God is all we need!
Near the end of Jesus’ life on earth. Jesus expressed regret to the very people He came to save: O Jerusalem, Jerusalem…how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing (Matthew 23:37). Make God your Go To today. Do so for the sake of your eternal future and your present well being. Jesus longs to gather you and your beloved to Himself. Be gathered, dear one. No regrets here!
The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17)
OPP (opportunity for action): Our culture is gathering our children through social media. Give them an alternative source of acceptance. Be diligent in making sure that God’s Friend Request is all they need. #Jeremiah 33:3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. Be a God is a Go To voice in your home.
