Soul Snack 8/8 ... Pilgrim's Progress
"Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage." (Psalm 84:5)
I know that you know - we both know!
Nevertheless, both the productive and seductive aspects of our lives cloud this.
Life, simply put, is a pilgrimage to God's presence. He owns us all! (Ezekiel 18:4)
Life is not a pilgrimage to possessions! This is peace robbery. (Jn 10:10) While I am pursuing goods, I am unable to pursue His goodness. The seeking of my goods, excludes the seeking of His goodness. (Matt 6:24) It is far healthier to dwell on His unfailing love, than my constantly failing lusts.
Pilgrimage is the seeking of God. (Remember... George Harrison was seeking God.)
Paradoxically, this journey, this pilgrimage is conducted by sitting. It is walked in stillness. I must stop for Him. I must stop to be with Him. (Ps 46:10)
To sit with God, is to sample heaven now. I know you know this.
God still wants to release you, to free you, that you may pursue His presence and taste heaven before you get there. He wants you to sample heaven now.
