When Ashtyn was a little girl, I asked her to give me a ‘kissie’. She promptly turned away, made a face, crossed her arms and said loudly, “NO!”
What?!?!? So I told her, in a laughing tone, “Look here little girl, it doesn’t cost you anything to kiss me and your Momma wants a kiss – so give it up girl!”
Right then God whispered to my heart…
Acknowledge the King. It doesn’t cost a thing. The way you long for Ashtyn’s affection, is also how I long for the affection of My Children.
Who do we acknowledge?
– Our friends: “Whassup dawg?”
– Our boss: “Good Morning, Sir.”
– Our parents: Whether in love or with an attitude.
– The police: Because we know the consequences if we don’t!
– Our God: Mostly when we need something from Him.
Sometimes it’s just “easy” to ignore that voice inside
God loves us dearly. He’s always talking to us. So why do we put off spending time with Him and ignore His whispers?
Acknowledge the King. It doesn’t cost a thing.
God wants to be acknowledged because He LOVES us so MUCH
Do not profane my Holy name. I must be acknowledged as holy by the Israelites. I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Leviticus 22:32
If it’s THAT IMPORTANT TO ME to have my daughter acknowledge me, then since God considers me HIS child, IT MUST BE that important TO HIM.
LET’S MAKE GOD FEEL IMPORTANT BY ACKNOWLEDGING HIM ALL DAY LONG. Do you struggle to do that? I’d love to hear your challenges in the blog comments section!
