Romans 8:10 “And Christ lives within you…”
1 John 2:27 “But you have received the Holy Spirit, and He lives within you…”
Luke 17:21 “ the kingdom of God is within you.”
Never look for the kingdom anywhere but within.
As you come, come with a deep sense of love; come to Him very gently; come to Him with a deep sense of worship.
We need only believe that God dwells within us, this belief alone will bring us into His holy presence.
No more striving to find Him or striving to get to where He is known, like church or even nature. It is so very simple – we need only be still and seek Him within our own hearts.
After all, we invited him into our hearts to dwell in us when we accepted His gift of grace, why should we not then turn to Him within our hearts to dwell with Him and hear His voice, receive His comfort and wisdom and give Him our thanks and praise.
All this time I’ve thought I’ve needed to go somewhere to truly be with Him, for peace and guidance, yet all along He has been within me and simply needed me to be still.
Not only do we need quiet times for our bodies to have rest but we need quiet times to be in relationship with Our Lord and Father.
So simple, yet so easily missed!!
