We are the temple of the living God..."Therefore come out from them and be separate," says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing and I shall receive you.--2Corinthinans 6:16-17
On the day I first truly understood my sinfulness before God and was broken by it, He set me apart. On that day, I walked, or more correctly crawled or crept, into God's throne room and I return there daily to be refreshed. As I approach Him, He infuses me with Himself with the intent of separating me from everything and everyone who is not part of Him.
He means to make me like Him, the way He originally created all men.
This is what He wants me to see. He not only offers me healing, he offers me holiness.
I must concentrate wholly on God, seeking to please Him, soaking up moments with Him, listening to Him so that I can obey, repenting for my failures before Him. Where I am preoccupied with other concerns, past or present, I do not let Him take hold.
All the people in my life are important, but not I cannot focus on them. They are the platform upon which I demonstrate God. That is why He brings them.
As I draw near to God, He shows me His character for the purpose of changing mine to resemble Him in the way He originally created me. My arena in which to accomplish this are the people and circumstances He ordains and, in the process, as I succeed, He is glorified.
The Lord God not only fills the rearview mirror with His own dear face. If we are looking, He fills the windshield, too.
