Soak It Up

Soak It Up…

Did you ever make tea? You put the tea bag in hot water and let it sit. It takes time. Believers treat God like fast food. You run in and have His presence and Word and then run out. You put the tea bag in, you take it out, and then complain there is no tea.

That is how we act with the Lord. We come in and out of God’s love, word, and prayer quickly. God’s love is not fast food. His love is more like the tea bag principle; it takes time.

We are the water; His love, truth, and presence are the tea bag. His righteousness is the tea. You have to let it soak in through the junk of the past – the emotions, all the scars. You need to be touched deeply.

Spend time in God’s presence. Let God’s presence dwell and remain in your life. Let the peace, love, joy, and purity of God soak into and penetrate your heart and emotions.

The love, word, and presence of God are so good; you need to give it time. It’s like tea, and you need to soak it up.

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Colossians 3:16

Come into the presence of the Lord and practice the art of soaking.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
