God’s Posture

Revelation 21:3 I heard a loud voice from the throne. It said, “Now God’s home is with people. He will live with them. They will be his people. God himself will be with them and will be their God.

Have you ever wondered whether God is bothered by how little time some people spend with Him? I mean quality time, unhurried time, undistracted time. Do you think, perhaps, that that might bother Him?

I was in a meeting recently with Rick Dunham, a man whom I greatly respect and admire. He talked briefly about God’s posture in our lives. Now, is that something you’ve ever considered? No, me neither, but what he said really made my ears prick up.

So when it comes to your life, the things that matter to you, what’s God’s posture towards you? Does He lean away from you, or does He lean towards you? The answer’s obvious isn’t it.

He sent you His Son, He’s sent His Spirit to dwell in you. He knows everything that’s going on in your life. He cares. He hears your cries.

Yep, God’s preferred posture is very definitely to lean into your life.

And yet, all too often, our response, our posture towards God if you will, is to lean away from Him. No time to pray, to pause, to listen. No time to read His Word or chew it over, but plenty of time to bury our face in a smartphone screen.

Yep. All too often, our posture is to lean away from God. So, how well is that working for you? Hmm?

Revelation 21:3 I heard a loud voice from the throne. It said, “Now God’s home is with people. He will live with them. They will be his people. God himself will be with them and will be their God.

There’s God’s heart towards you. There’s His passion. There’s His posture. I will be their God and they will be my people.

Do yourself a favour. Lean into God.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
