Morning Note 2
Where have you met God? Do you wait until the church opens back up to meet God? I love “The Building” we call our House of Worship. I was raised in Sunday School, Tuesday Night Bible Band, Thursday night Sewing Circle and Choir Rehearsal, Friday night Pastor’s Aid Night and revival after revival. So I am a true lover of gathering at “The Building”. However, when we develop a true relationship with God, “The Building” becomes one of the chosen and sacred places where we meet the Father.
I want to tell you that if you have not met God in your kitchen while cooking or in your bathroom while bathing or in your car while driving to work or in your closet at home or even in the supermarket while shopping, then I want to tell “us” that we have not met God. He’s so much more than what we show.
Genesis 32 tells the story of the night that Jacob wrestled with the Angel. Verse 30 tells us this:
So Jacob called the place Peniel, saying, “It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared.” Peniel or Penuel is somewhere on the bank of the Jordan River. Jacob called this place his church, but it wasn’t a building. It was on the river.
So I ask you again, Where Have You Met God? Since and before March 2020 we should have already had several places where we encountered God. In the last two months our entire homes should have been made sacred places because we should have been meeting God in our homes or on our back porch.
Don’t frets if “The Building” has not opened back up for you to worship. Make good of where you are and meet God there. Bring Him back into your home. Make your home the place where He is welcomed. Once “The Buildings” open back up you will see the “normal” Building has changed. It will never be the same again because you met God on the river bank and brought Him to ” The Building” with you… #HeartCheck #SeedsForGrowth
