This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Exodus 33:14 (ESV)
Today, I am asking a question: did you invite God to your party?
I know this sounds a little quirky, especially because this is a holiday weekend for most, so you may actually be going to a party or two. I’m not talking about that kind of party though.
I had this thought when I was talking to one of my friends last year about her selling her home. She put her house on the market, but shortly thereafter, began to express a little anxiety about the process.
This is understandable because selling a house means you have to invest money to spruce the house up for a good showing and you need to assess what other properties are selling for at the time. Therefore, it’s completely normal to have some anxiety when embarking on what can be an uncertain and drawn-out process.
However, what I think about during processes like these—whether it’s selling a home, recovering financially, or working on a marriage—is that there is nothing better to do than to personally invite God into that situation. That’s what I mean by inviting Him into your party.
I do believe in calling these situations parties because when you invite Him in, there will be a cause for a celebration. Your most troublesome situation can become a party when you invite God because, at the end, you will understand that no one brought about that accomplishment but Him.
Whether it’s through prayer, in a journal, or even in a letter to the Lord, take a few moments to speak to Him about that situation you are grappling with today and invite Him in. As you do so, remember these words: “My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, invite Him in.
