Posture before God

“Then one of the synagogue leaders, named Jairus, came, and when he saw Jesus, he fell at his feet.” Mark 5:22.

“Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet, and trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.” Mark 5:33.

Verses chosen from today’s Bible reading; Numbers 19-20, Psalm 28, and Mark 5.

Who am I in the presence of God?

God is not a casual acquaintance of mine.  There’s no small talk.  I am flat out overwhelmed.

Words will escape me.  My eyes cannot look at Him.

I am undone!

I can do nothing but stretch out in front of Him face down.

And then there’s my actual experience with Him.  I send Him wish lists telling Him what I want. I give Him an occasional “Thank You” for some help of His that I happen to notice.

How shallow is my relationship!  How unrealistic!

God is awe worthy.  EVERY good gift has come from Him.  He is the reason that I have eternal life with Him.  Why do I act so underwhelmed of Him?

“Lord, You are awe worthy.  Forgive me for lessening my awe and replacing it with complacency.  You are indeed everything to me.  How amazing You are!  Thank You, Father.”

If I am not overwhelmed by God then I am not seeing Him (and me) accurately.
