{ Day 212 }

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the  Almighty. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." —Psalm 91:1-2

Churches are full of people who spend Monday through Saturday trying harder in their walk with the Lord. They wake up early so they can read through the Bible in a year; they make promises to themselves to invite a neighbor to church or pray for the ailing child a few doors down. They try to show the light of Christ at work and hold their tongues when angered by their spouse. Then on Sunday they cringe in the pew during worship and feel somehow that they've spent another week failing to be a good Christian. But if you experience God's enjoyment of you, then you will begin enjoying God, and this whole cycle changes. Transformation happens as naturally as the changing of seasons. You will live in much greater holiness, and you will be truly happy. You won't be so concerned about not doing bad things because your heart will find no pleasure in them anyway. This process of transformation never ends. We will be always gazing, always discovering, always changing, always enjoying, always reflecting more of His glory and passion.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Day by day You are changing me into Your likeness, Jesus. The things that used to hinder me no longer appeal to me. The wonder of Your presence is all I want. Let me reflect Your glory and passion.

We enjoy God more by searching out and convincing
ourselves of God's enjoyment of us.
