Time with God - Oct. 18, 2010
For the enemy has persecuted my soul; he has crushed my life to the ground; he has made me dwell in dark places, like those who have long been dead. Therefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; my heart is appalled within me. I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your doings; I muse on the work of Your hands. I stretch out my hands to You; my soul longs for You, as a parched land.
Stop and think about God!
Who God is forms the cornerstone of the universe. God made things the way they are because of who He is. God acts in your life because of who He is. Everything God does flows from who He is. Because of this reality, nothing could be more important than for you to stop and think about God. In fact, as AW Tozer put it, the most important thing about you is what you think about God.
In the verses above, you'll see David has been in a time of great difficulty, stress, and pressure. But instead of thinking less of God for allowing it, he stops and thinks about what he knows of God. He thinks about "the days of old", all that God has done in the past. As he takes time with God, he finds himself reaching out to God rather than pushing Him away. God wants you to take time to think about Him today.
