Adventure With God

Do you like to be alone? Some have difficulty knowing what to do with themselves without others around – or without some form of input or entertainment. We know this is an increasing problem in our culture.  If this is a significant problem for you also, I have good news for you today. You don’t need to ever be completely alone!

After God created Adam, God said, “It is not good for man to be alone.” (Genesis 2:18)  It seems that the image of God in human beings involves community. We were created to flourish in good and healthy relationships with others and with God, just as God enjoys community within the Godhead (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

“In the beginning was the Word (Jesus), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.” (John 1:1-2)

“No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made Him known.” (John 1:18)

Psalm 23 is one of the most known, recognized and inspiring passages of Scripture in all the world. It speaks of God’s presence breaking the aloneness in the fear of death. King David wrote of God, “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4) 500 years later Isaiah prophesied about a coming day when God would be with us as Immanuel. Jesus is the fulfillment of David’s and Isaiah’s longing! (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23)

We all need to learn and practice stillness. We need to learn to quiet our souls. But, we must remember that we need never be completely alone. Jesus came that we might be with God. He has made a way for us to always be conscious of God’s presence. This is the best news that we can ever know – this is eternal good news – you need never be all alone!

It is important to spend intentional and focused time with God. It is a crucial spiritual discipline that cannot be overlooked. Additionally (not instead of) there is the continuous practice of His presence. This awareness requires diligent practice, but it is not difficult. All we need to do is develop the habit of constantly inviting the Lord into our experiences and seek to be attentive to Him. Remind yourself
that you are not alone.  When you forget, simply start over as soon as you can. 

  • Consider His perspectives along with your own. 
  • Ask for His insights.
  • Seek to obey His leading.

This kind of "With-God” lifestyle, exercised over time, will transform how you live and relate to others. You will experience the weights and problems of life differently – as the resources of heaven begin to
open within you. Your perspectives of life, people, situations and death will grow in depth and purpose.

Are you ready to invite the Lord into your day, and seek to be with Him today?  Enjoy the adventure – you are not alone!
