For the next 5 days, there will be a new advent post each day. This will lead us right up to Christmas eve. I hope that these advent posts have been encouraging to you in this Advent season. If you are just joining us, I would encourage you to either check back each day for the next 5 days or join our mailing list to have these emails sent directly to you.
As we are now in the third week of Advent, I hope that taking time out to study God's Word and how faithful He has been to fulfill his promises has been come a regular occurrence for you. Today I want to encourage you as we await the return of the Messiah. We see in Exodus that after spending time with God, Moses' face shown.
"When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, with the two tablets of the testimony in his hand as he came down from the mountain, Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God."
When we are spending time with God and seeking to know him on a personal level, it is reflected in our lives. Our daily rhythms become a way to worship Him with our lives.
The only way to truly know someone is to spend time with them. The more time you spend with them, the more you learn about them. This direct correlation is the same with God. The only way to truly know God is to spend time with Him and learn more about Him. How do you expect to know God if you do not spend time with Him?
I encourage you to continue or start spending time with God. Seek out scripture and pray. May we use scripture to adore, confess, praise, and thank God. We have been given the greatest gifts from God. Not only has He provided the perfect sacrifice through Jesus, but He has also given us direct access to Himself through prayer.
Does your life shine from spending time with God?
Take some time and thank God for the ability to seek Him and know Him personally. Thank and praise Him for scripture. Ask Him to give you a greater hunger and passion to know Him and His word, that you might study it with greater delight than ever before!
