To know Him
"come to Me and rest. give your mind a break from its habitual judging. you form judgements about this situation, that situation, this person, that person, yourself, even the weather- as if judging were your main function in life. but I created you first and foremost to know ME and to live in rich communication with Me. when you become preoccupied with passing judgment, you usurp My role.
relate to Me as creature to Creator, sheep to Shepherd, subject to King, clay to Potter. allow Me to have My way in your life. rather than evaluating My ways with you, accept them thankfully. the intimacy I offer you is not an invitation to act as if you were My equal. worship Me as King of kings while walking hand in hand with Me down the path of life." (taken from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young)
I believe once we get to know our Heavenly Daddy, this becomes easier. He created us to know Him. Not just know about Him. I have lived long enough to know I don't just want to have an acquaintance with Him. I want to know HIM! How about you? Do you know Him? Or is He just an acquaintance? He wants to be so much more. And once He is so much more turning control over to Him is so much easier.
