God is so sick of saints coming to Him trying to get a quickie and never romancing Him for Who he is – going to church screaming, shouting and hollering, but hadn’t been intimate with God all week long! Stop trying to treat God like a sugar daddy and start romancing Him with worship and praise on a regular basis: ‘I’m yours Lord…everything I’ve got…everything I’m not!’
The God we serve, which is the God of love, demands and requires of us foreplay before He gives us what we need. In the book of Ruth, the mother-in-law tells Ruth, ‘You have to wash.’ John 15:3 reminds us, Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. When you sit in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, you are taking a shower. When you hear the unadulterated Word of God, then the dirt and grime that you’ve accumulated all week long begins to wash off of you and then God can provide you what you need.
Ask God to ‘create in you a clean heart and renew a right spirit.’ Stand in the word. Then wait upon the Lord to renew your strength.
Every Saint Has a Past, Every Sinner Has A Future!
