Psalm 100, Psalm 27: 4-6, Romans 12: 2
The best thing in the world is God Himself; spending time with Him, dwelling in His presence.
As we soak Him up, it changes us.
Just being in His presence, thanking Him for every good thing in life and praising Him for being God, who's nature is to give all those good things, lightens the load within us, creates a happier disposition and gives us a worshipful heart.
As we constantly thank Him, it cleans us on the inside. After thanking Him our heart is in the right position of knowing who He is, as we bring to Him all our needs and those of others around us.
As we spend time with Him every day, as often as possible, our minds begin to be renewed. Our minds begin to get clear of distractions, wrong thoughts etc and we keep our minds on Him more, creating a sense of freshness inside.
After soaking Him up as often as possible, we start to become more aware of His presence with us throughout the day.
He has a work to do in us and it's between Him and us.
As we're with Him, any situation in life that should have us suffering or experiencing loneliness is turned on its head.
So let's be soakers of His presence, dwellers with Him, hiding and resting and enjoying Him. Let's love Him and be loved. Let's tell Him what we think of Him, how wonderful He is. Let's spend as much time as possible with our Friend, the one who loves us.
