WHERE WERE YOU TODAY
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
Jeremiah 33:3 KJV
Has someone ever told you that he or she would come visit you but didn’t come to visit you? Have you ever told people that you would go visit them but you never went to see them? If we will listen with our heart, will we hear Jesus say to us “Where were you today? I waited for you all day. I miss you”.
May God have mercy on us and forgive us if we hurt His beloved Son because we didn’t spend time with Jesus today. Why is it we have time to watch television but don’t have time to spend with Jesus? Some people can get up early in the morning to go fishing or on vacation but they can’t get up early for Jesus.
I believe there are times when we hurt Jesus and break His heart because we don’t spend time with Him. When we don’t spend time with Jesus, not only does it hurt Him it also hurts God. If you’re a parent then you know how it feels to have someone ignore your children. It breaks your heart, doesn’t it?
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for sometimes putting Jesus on a shelf and only taking Him down when we need or want something. Thank You, Father, for loving us even when we hurt You and break Your heart. I pray that we will make time to talk to Jesus every day. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
