Don’t Miss Him

When God stepped down to earth, He didn’t just step into the human existence, He stepped into your existence. And my existence. And even though Jesus left the earth, His Spirit is still here. God with us. In our lives. In our circumstances. Our joys, our sorrows, the mundane, and the monumental.
But what does that look like? God with us?

I was thinking about those Hebrews waiting for God to be with them. Waiting for the Messiah. They fashioned ideas of what that would look like. They had expectations. God would come and save them from their oppressors and make their lives easier.

So when He came, they didn’t see. They were so busy looking for the expected that they missed the extraordinary.
And that can happen to us. We have an idea of how God is going to be with us. We expect something specific and He does it differently and we miss it. We miss Him. Then we think He didn’t come. We think He wasn’t with us.

God is with us. But we have to learn to set aside all our notions of what having God with us looks like. Don’t expect anything. Just watch. Just listen. He’s here. Let’s not miss Him.
