Loving God’s Presence

man looking away

It’s so true that you become like those you spend the most time with. Imagine spending an increasing amount of time with the Lord! Consider what that will do for you in every aspect of your life. 

But I’ve heard it said that some people are so heavenly minded that they become useless here on earth. Whatever that means, I want to be more and more like our Lord. That’s what he wants of us too. 

“O Lord, I love the habitation of your house and the place where your glory wells (Psalm 26:8).

When we spend more time in God’s presence, he transforms our hearts and minds. We get his vision for the world and for ourselves. First we see ourselves as we truly are. We’re made aware of our sin and  our brokenness. As we’re truly open with God and confess our sins, he takes us to the next phase. Second, we see the world as God sees it. Along with seeing the sinfulness and brokenness, we will see the world with his eyes of mercy, not judgement.
