While traveling through an adjoining state we decided to visit a well-known recreation area. Having heard about it for years, I was really looking forward to it. As we wound our way through the mountains we wondered just how remote this famous tourist attraction was. Finally we spied the entrance and turned in. It didn’t take us long to realize this destination had seen better days. It had also seen more visitors than it had now. Everything was worn out. We couldn’t imagine the attraction of this place.
Although the scenery was amazing, all the storefronts, cabins, and restaurants seemed tired and forlorn. There might have been 25 people around. We left after we realized we could not drive on down into the main attraction area. A wide path that could hold hundreds of people was blocked off to access that day. We left somewhat disappointed but glad that we would no longer wonder about this place that was supposed to have been such an appeal!
Oh beloved, God wants you to know this morning that He is real! His Spirit is as vibrant an attraction to hungry and thirsty souls today as ever. He isn’t calling you this morning to travel FOR Him – He’s calling you to travel TO Him! He’s calling you into a higher relationship with Him. It’s fresh, it’s new, it’s amazing! Nothing about God is boring or forlorn. In Christ you have access to be part of the greatest love story and the greatest relationship you will ever have!
You may have tried to find purpose in other things and came up oh so empty. You may have traveled far and wide seeking the famous things of earth and found yourself disappointed with people, places and things.
But this morning God is saying to you I AM that I AM. He is the very thing your heart longs for. He takes your worn out decisions that ended up in disrepair and makes all things new! Not a single moment in His Presence will ever disappoint you! You are a woman of revelation! And His revelation shows you the Kingdom of God that never wears out, never quits fulfilling and never disappoints a single soul!
God loves you and He’s for you! He’s calling you not to service but to Him! The nails on the cross had your name on them. The Father’s hands have held you all the way. And the Spirit of the Risen King is within you! Rejoice that you can live completely enthralled, constantly amazed, and ever loved as you live for the pleasure of the Only Living God!
