HOW MUCH OF GOD ARE YOU EXPERIENCING?

HOW MUCH OF GOD ARE YOU EXPERIENCING?

 

"Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, the God who is our salvation. God is to us a God of deliverances; and to God, the Lord belong escapes from death." (Psalm 68:20-21)

God is not changed by our thoughts. He is who He is regardless of our beliefs. The atheist does not affect the reality of God, nor the agnostic or unbelieving.

But what are you experiencing of God? How much of Him are you tasting? What are you able to tell others about God? Adrian Rogers said, “I don’t know how much of God you have, but I can tell you this, you have all you want.”

David drank deeply of the riches of God. He came daily, hourly to the Lord for help and comfort, strength and protection, and always found His Father sufficient. He came in Psalm 68 amid great turmoil expressing some of what He knew of God.

To David, the Lord was One who "daily bears our burden and "who is our salvation. God "TO US" is a God of deliverances," David sang. He was experiencing this as He turned in trust and cast his burdens upon the Lord.  

You can carry your burdens yourself. You have some right now. You will have days of small, multiple burdens and great, overwhelming burdens. Who carries those? Who bears the weight of them? For David, the burden bearer was God. He offloaded them to shoulders far bigger than His. And God (who is always faithful) delivered him, over and over again. In fact, every day.

How much of God are you experiencing today? You can have all you want.

“God is easy to live with,” Tozer also said. He is not only perfect in holiness (He must deal with sin as it comes) but also flawless in kindness. If He were a man you related to, you would find Him always doing the right, gracious, benevolent thing. You would be stunned by His interest in you; awed by His acts of kindness. Overwhelmed by His unceasing generosity.

MISSING THE KINGDOM OF GOD

Has the kingdom of God come near you? You’ve heard of Christ, seen someone in whom Christ dwelled, passed by a church on the corner, or have a Bible that a grandmother gave you years ago. Perhaps you even sit in a church every Sunday, but you have never surrendered to Christ and entered His kingdom. You never acknowledged your need and turned to Christ in faith to save you. You merely let the kingdom merely “come near.”
