A few years ago, every time I went into prayer, I would always end up at this one scripture. I just could not get away from it. I read it for months, and when I needed it most, revelation came. I love the way God loves, there’s always an appointed time.
There was a period that I left church. I did not abandon my relationship with God. I continued to seek him, but not out of obligation. I lost passion for what required me to show up, but could not hold me up. Showing up to do a job, could not hold me! Showing up so people could think , I was conquering grief.
There was an interference with my passion for God! I’m praying for you became empty words to me. So I decided to go on a leave of absence, a journey that ignited passion again. I would sit in Dunkin Donuts alone, soaking in the word of God.
I would drive around , surrendering every thought to Christ. I took the time to know him in a deeper way. I realized there were ways I did not know him. God begin to fill the hidden places. I returned to my first love!
Revelations 2:4 , started to unfold for me. Sometimes we go to a place , it becomes what we do. Circumstances happen , disappointments come. All these things , act as interference. God knew this. He had already sent his word.
I no longer desire to just do for God. I wanted to know him , outside Of what I thought I knew of him. It’s no longer a priority for me to just show up, I want devotion. God loves us so much, that he will constantly give us fresh encounters.
The revelation is never lose your fire for your first love. Life is going to throw some curve balls, but you can always return to your first love. What I do for Christ , is not about me. The one who loved you first wants your heart. Keep pursuing God.
It’s my prayer that you know, your never to far from God. There’s nothing that can separate you from his love. Your never to far gone , that you can’t return.
