Psalm 42:2 – 1 As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
Reading these verses remind me that I hope the rapture is in the next second. Are you excited to be with the One who loves you and only wants heaven and happiness for you? Or are you fixated on this world and all of your own accomplishments more.
I underlined “more”, because the Lord wants us to keep Him the center and work hard while we’re here, but I can promise you if you’re more excited about this place than His coming..?????
Put yourself in His shoes. You’re coming back for your bride and your bride would rather you not show up right now. You’re bride doesn’t even want to think about you showing up right now.
Just thinking about that and hearing yourself read it is kind of scary, isn’t it? It kind of reminds of this parable.
Luke 14:15-24 – 15 When one of those at the table with him heard this, he said to Jesus, “Blessed is the one who will eat at the feast in the kingdom of God.”
16 Jesus replied: “A certain man was preparing a great banquet and invited many guests. 17 At the time of the banquet he sent his servant to tell those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’
18 “But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said, ‘I have just bought a field, and I must go and see it. Please excuse me.’
19 “Another said, ‘I have just bought five yoke of oxen, and I’m on my way to try them out. Please excuse me.’
20 “Still another said, ‘I just got married, so I can’t come.’
21 “The servant came back and reported this to his master. Then the owner of the house became angry and ordered his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and alleys of the town and bring in the poor, the crippled, the blind and the lame.’
22 “‘Sir,’ the servant said, ‘what you ordered has been done, but there is still room.’
23 “Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full. 24 I tell you, not one of those who were invited will get a taste of my banquet.’”
Don’t love the world, Love Your Lord! His appearing is so close. Is your heart ready?
