Your quiet time with God (2)

"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

'Don't Look Back'

Memory Verse: Revelation 4:11 - "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."

The Word for Today devotional by United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) says:

Did you know:

1) God created you so that He could have a relationship with you? He made you in order to enjoy your company every day. ‘And for thy pleasure they…were created.’ Your attitude towards your quiet time with God will be transformed when you realise that He wants to spend time with you, waits for you, and welcomes you into His presence.

2) The cross is what made this relationship possible? When Adam sinned, God drove him from the Garden of Paradise and placed angels with swords at its entrance so that mankind could never re-enter.

Then God did something truly amazing; He took on human form, lived among us, died in our place, and was cut down by the sword of divine judgment at the cross, providing us with a way back into His presence. Wonderful, isn’t it? In the Old Testament only one man, the high priest, could go into the Holy of Holies. And he could only do it one day a year.

A thick veil separated God from the people. They stood outside wondering what God’s voice sounded like, what His presence felt like, and what His glory looked like. Only the high priest knew. But when Jesus cried, ‘It is finished!’. (John 19:30 NKJV), the Bible says, ‘The veil of the temple was torn in two from top [where God was] to bottom [where we were]’ (Mark 15:38 NKJV).

Now, as ‘priests unto God’ we can come into His presence at any time and meet with Him (Revelation 1:6). What a privilege! Grace makes it possible. And gratitude should be the magnet that draws you there each day.

Bible in a Year: Ezek 11-13; Heb 9;
