After over an hour of unrestrained praise and worship…the atmosphere was electric with His presence. You would think that nothing would interfere. No distraction.
But that’s when it happened. A thought came to me about something completely UNIMPORTANT. When I realized I was entertaining it, I drew my attention back to God.
In a few moments, it happened again. This time, a completely unrelated thought of something else UNIMPORTANT. Again, I garnered my heart back to God.
I thought I was in the clear. And then, (you guessed it), there it was again. Not the same thought but something else and can I just spell it out for you again? UNIMPORTANT.
So I finally caught the drift and asked God, “What’s this all about Father? Why these thoughts?”
Now, let me just say this, before I give you His answer. It wasn’t “sin” thoughts, or so I thought. If you really want to know, (and yes, feel free to laugh at my expense), it was clothing, a series of books I have been reading, and I’m too embarrassed to say the last one out loud but God knows about it, OK?
OK. So here’s what He said.
“When you really enter in and worship Me, your idols will draw you.”
The words to one of the songs I had been singing was “Come, walk into my temple Lord. Overturn my tables.”
Guess that stuff was flying off the table!
I’m in love with you Jesus. In love.
