“Father, Reveal who you are today.”
Matthew 11:2 MSG
How you see God impacts how you pray.
Understanding who God really is impacts how you talk to Him. Talking with a good, good Father is very different from talking to a distant divine judge (which is how I used to see God).
Jesus said God is your Father who loves you and to ask Him to reveal Himself to you.
The most life-transforming moments happen when God reveals who He is to you. The moments that you realize that He is proud of you, loves you with an unwavering constancy and is yearning to spend time with you.
This is just the tip of the iceberg – a lifetime of loving Him will barely scratch the surface of His love.
Jesus said to ask God to reveal Himself to you today.
You don’t need a lot of words.
You don’t need a lot of time.
You only need to ask and be open to receive it.
Then, be ready to be amazed.
That is it.
That is everything.
Before you get face to face with all that is happening in the world today, get face to face with your Father and let Him love you.
