God likes you! He really likes you! What a great way to rejoice, knowing how much God is crazy about us. I read an article on prayer today. It was written by Patricia Rayben. She interviewed Priscilla Shirer, daughter of Preacher Tony Evans.
Rayben quotes Shirer talking about prayer and how God yearns to just hang out with us.
It is a great article (published in the Fullfill magazine found at http://fullfill.org). And I wholly agree with what was written.
I don't think God minds our endless prayer requests but the best part of prayer is just hanging out with Jesus.
He wants to hang out with us.
Shirer quotes Richard Foster. He writes, "Today the heart of God is an open wound of love . . . He longs for our presence."
And another one she quotes is Theologian Martin Laird. He writes, "(prayertime for many) renders us like the proverbial deep-sea fisherman, who spends his life fishing for minnows while standing on a whale."
God is the whale. We have Him right here with us all the time. He is the treasure. He is the Ultimate Answer to all our prayers.
Today, when you take time to pray, just hang out with God. He enjoys you.
Give this back to Him -- enjoy Him too.
