The other night I was freezing. I had a thick comforter over me, but I couldn't quite locate that warmth comfort. I hopped out of bed with the bit of warmth I mustered up and grabbed some fluffy socks. I immediately threw them on my feet and dived back into the bed. I quickly thought unh, oh, to always be warm and never freezing at the feet of Jesus. How amazing that feeling is to be physically cold but spiritually warm.
What's your relationship like at the feet of Jesus? Where are you, fireplace toasty or a walking icicle? Can He count on you to talk to Him first thing in the morning or when you remember He is still there waiting? When someone crosses your path, is it evident where you end and He begins?
Lord, I no longer want to be lukewarm. I don't want to be that one who calls on you in a panic or when it's convenient for me. I want and need you like my hair wants and needs moisture.
The time is now to examine: our walk, our ways, our consistency, our time, and our dedication. The Bible expresses that if we are not at the right temperature, he will spit us out; check it out in the Message version of Revelation 3:15-16:
“I know you inside and out and find little to my liking. You’re not cold; you’re not hot—far better to be either cold or hot! You’re stale. You’re stagnant. You make me want to vomit.
Are you ready to feel that warmth at His feet? He is!
Living in, on, and for purpose, are you?
