Do you have a reality of God? Is God as real to you as your morning coffee? So real that there isn’t any doubt and all your thoughts and decisions are shaped by how real He is? Me neither. But I wish that was true.
While I sat back and contemplated God, I had a picture of an angel appearing in front of me. How would I react to that? That’s the kind of thing that would shake up your theology. I could just see the angel looking at me in frustration and asking, “What are you doing!” As if I hadn’t been aware of God enough to value Him in my life as I should.
I could imagine that an angel appearing in front of me would change my life forever. I would see and know the presence of God first hand. But Jesus said, Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed. (John 20:29) We don’t need an angel to convince us of God’s love and power in our lives. That’s what the Holy Spirit is for.
But He makes me hungry to know Him more. And the good news of that is: Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled. (Mat 5:6) I’m ready to be filled.
