Divorce is not a Dirty Word

Week Four Day Six

I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. . .Blessed is the man woman] who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord. Proverbs8:17,34 36

Max Lucado, one of my favorite authors, says, "When you recognize God as Creator, you will admire him. When you recognize his wisdom, you will learn from him. When you discover his strength, you will rely on him. But only when he saves you will you worship him."

I guess we must recognize that we are lost completely and totally before we can be completely and totally happy that we have been found, and this is what causes us to worship the Lord. This is what Mr. Lucado is trying to get across. When we recognize our condition or our situation we are more aware of God's hand in our lives.

We seek God by reading his Word and attending church. As we begin to read the scriptures with a genuine desire to find God, we find Him. The beauty of His creation then begins to awaken us to the awesomeness of who He really is.

I believe "watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway" means beginning our day with a few moments dedicated solely to scripture and prayer. This is true in my life. When I start my day with Him, seeking His guidance for my life, He always teaches me something. It isn't necessarily something I can use for that day. Many times His teachings have been for something I needed in the future. Get it? The future which only He knows about.

Pay close attention to the people around you today. See who needs a special listening ear or handshake. God is near.
