[ WARNING: THIS IS LONG BUT I THINK IT WILL ENCOURAGE YOU ]
Have you ever had time with God like this - where you wake up, open your Bible reading plan, read it, and get nothing? That was me this morning. I didn’t underline anything. I didn’t write anything in my journal. I didn’t get any deep revelation. Just a letter to a guy named Felix and a long genealogy that said “Caleb” nine times.
On days like this, I’m reminded of the importance and necessity of having a real relationship with God - not having a legalistic checklist of spiritual disciplines.
You and I have both had relationships so close where you can have the occasional day where you literally do nothing and say nothing while hanging out...and still be close. Those relationships with no relational pressure to always be “on”. Those relationships where every conversation doesn’t have to be deep.
On days like this, I’m reminded that I can have that type of relationship with God - where we are so close that we can have the occasional day where we do nothing and say nothing while hanging out...and still be close.
If you - like me - have ever had times with God like this, don’t be discouraged, don’t give up, and don’t get frustrated. The goal is not to check off your Bible reading plan or fill your journal. The goal is to spend time with God. And the more you spend time with him, the closer you will get. And the closer you get, you can have the occasional day where you do nothing and say nothing while hanging out...and still be close.
Hope that encourages you today!
