A 365 Days Challenge Day #1
How do you start fresh with God? How do you close the distance between yourself and your Creator? It really is very simple: Come out of hiding.
In the Bible we read the account of Adam and Eve who ate the forbidden fruit, realized they were uncovered, and hid from God. So God walked through the garden calling out, ” where are you?” God helped this couple after they stepped out into the light and said, ” Here we are.” Their honesty about where they were and what they had done opened the door for God to clothe them and promise them a Savior who would rescue them from their fallen condition.
God comes into our lives asking the same question: “Where are you?” When we honestly face who we are and what we have become, the door is opened for us to have a genuine relationship with Him. You can’t dress up for God. He deals in the currency of honesty. Bring the real you to the real God and watch transformation take place.
Lor God, help me to admit that I need you. I’ve been hiding for way too long. Love myself for who I am. I need to bee and feel alive for myself and do this for me and no one else.
God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life. Psalm 51:10
Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10 (NIV)
