Got ears to hear and eyes to see? Got a moment to draw apart.. to wait on the Lord? You probably will this week.

Should we like.. keep the Good News of God's salvation to ourselves until we each are perfect? Nope, cuz there'll be none to win to Christ in heaven. 

We indeed want to appropriate God's power to grow while here -- to walk it and talk it. Yep, it is our duty, believer, to go tell others about how God wants a relationship with all of us ..here while we can. Pray and decide to go tactfully share the Good News today! Obedience will help with that perfecting. 

You might be watching the Super Bowl right now and not see this until Monday. That's cool. I'm with some friends (with half my voice back now after that wicked flu..) who are playing the game in the background. Not really feelin' so NFL motivated personally this year, but last time I checked the screen the Eagles were leading 15 to 3. 

Remember, when you get a chance this week, draw apart to seek, to hear from and to wait on the Lord. He will indeed inspire you and meet all of your needs. He promised to. Yes, be encouraged to rengage in ministry first upwards and then outwards. I want you and others totally blessed. 

Jesus said, "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33 
We seek Jesus cuz we love Him and want closeness with Christ. We want to know and worship Him. We want to bless Him most and do His will as well. You already know that as you and I biblically grow closer to the Word of God, Jesus opens our eyes to see more and more of His awesome presence all around you/us daily. You know He's never been lazy, distracted or indifferent regarding blessing you -- regarding His great plan for you. He’s working diligently and said He’ll never leave you or forsake you. God is transforming us into the image of His dear Son..yep, in His good will. 
How priceless, how rad-valuable is God’s unfailing Love you-ward! How wonderful it is spending time alone with Him. What motivates us more? I can't think of anything can you? 
In fact as you pause and make time to wait with the Lord in His word, He will refresh you -- He'll work for you ...while you wait.
The Bible says, "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31
Let's be all in. He's been all in for us -- sure Christ has, just look at the Cross. Let's draw even closer in 2018. Come to Jesus again and again when you are hurtin’ or in need, and listen He will share your pain. With the same comfort we receive from Him we can give this comfort away. 
Many get mad at God, and refuse to wait. They run from Him and from His healthy Christian church when they have problems or hurt inside. You've seen them and talked with them. Me too. But let's set an example and do the opposite. Run in the right direction. Be quick to go to God. 
Jesus knows your address and He can still comfort or heal people. He can touch you and others through you! He hasn't changed not even a smidgen. He's so there for you today!  
God sees you and those waiting for the Gospel that He can use you to reach. You know His promises are still true. You know His Great Commission is still the greatest mission! Others are waiting to hear about Jesus. He loves you and them so much He can't take His eyes off of us. He intercedes for us and tell us to go tell. So what are we waiting for. It's a new week with new life!

Waiting doesn't have to be boring. Can you think of a person you really wouldn’t mind waitin’ with? I’m sure you could. Doesn’t have to be in vain.
