Coffee with Jesus

So, are you willing to do some things differently in order to make some good things happen in your life?

In continuing with my last post, I want to share some devotional pointers.

First, it’s important that this time with the Lord be regular

D.L. Moody said, “A man can no more take in a supply of grace for the future than he can eat enough for the next six months or take sufficient air into his lungs at one time to sustain life for a weekWe must draw upon God’s boundless store of grace from day to day as we need it.
I used to tell the church that I could not promise them that every time they came through those church doors they would have a dynamic encounter with Almighty God. However I did promise them that, if they were faithful to come, there would definitely be those times, those services that would be totally anointed and they WOULD encounter God in a real and powerful way.
He never let me down. Sure enough, many services were blessed with His anointing and presence. Those who were faithful to be there every Sunday, experienced it.
It is exactly the same way with a daily devotional time with God. I cannot promise you that every morning is going to be a Holy Ghost, shoutin, Glory-Hallelujah experience. I can promise you that, if you will be faithful to get into the Scriptures every morning and spend a few minutes with God…there WILL be those mornings!

We need time alone with the Lord. Jesus went to a solitary place away from the crowd. Moses went to that tent of meeting outside the camp. God said to Moses, Exodus 34:2, And be ready in the morning, and come up in the morning unto mount Sinai, and present thyself there to me in the top of the mount.

Those of you who are married know that you’re not going to have much of a marriage if you’re always in a crowd. You’re not going to cultivate a level of engagement and conversation and intimacy if you’re never alone together. Some of us are wanting to become spiritual giants, but we’re never spending time alone with the Lord. We need that alone time.

Think of it. The Lord Jesus Christ is willing to meet with you privately for as long as you want. And He is willing even eager to meet with you every day. Suppose you had been one of the thousand that followed Jesus around for much of the last three years of His earthly life. Can you imagine how excited you would have been if one of his disciples said, “The Master wants us to tell you that He is willing to get alone with you whenever you’re willing and for as much time as you want to spend, and He’ll be expecting you most every day.” What a privilege. Who would have complained about this expectation? Well, that marvelous privilege and expectation is always yours.

Think of it. What a privilege.

Have you started yet? I’ll post one more suggestion in my next post.

What does God have for you…just around the corner?
