When I was in college, I had a good friend who was a brother in Christ. I usually saw him in the dining hall for meals. However, one day, our usual paths did not cross and on the next day when I encountered him at the dining hall, I queried, “Where were you yesterday?”
He smiled and replied, “I spent the day just meditating and thinking about God. It was awesome!”
I was floored when I heard his answer. I needed to know more! “How did you do it?” I eagerly asked him.
“I just meditated on how amazing and immense God is. I prayed, I sang some worship songs. But mainly, I just spent the time in quiet reflection thinking about how great He is and how fortunate I am to be with a God who loves us so much.”
We all need to spend time just praising God for who He is! Too often, we get caught up in presenting a laundry list of demands to God. Intercessory prayer is important, of course, but we should make the time to just meditate and think upon the greatness of God. The more we do this, the larger our understanding of God becomes and the more humble we will become.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
Take time in your busy day to sit still and ponder the greatness of God. God wants to spend time with you so that He may expand your understanding of Him and deepen your relationship with Him.
