Take God out of the “emergency only” box

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? –1 Corinthians 3:16

I used to spend time with God once in awhile or when my life was in big trouble. Eventually  I learned that if I ever wanted to stop living from one emergency to the next, I needed to seek God every day as if I were in a desperate need for Him.

It’s true that God will always help us when we come to Him. But if we want constant victory, we need to take God out of our “emergency only” box and invite Him into our everyday lives.

God wants us to get personal with Him. He proves this by the fact that He lives within us.

When Jesus dies on the cross, He opened the way for us to get personal with Almighty God. If God had wanted an “emergency only” relationship, He might just visit on occasion, but He certainly would not have come to take up permanent residence within us.

What an awesome thought! God is your personal friend! Will you remove Him from the “emergency only” box today?
