Organizing the Inside – Day 274 Knowing God Intimately

“And Solomon, my son, learn to know the God of your ancestors intimately. Worship and serve him with your whole heart and a willing mind. For the LORD sees every heart and knows every plan and thought. If you seek him, you will find him. But if you forsake him, he will reject you forever. 1 Chronicles 28:9 (NLT)

Prepare for service by knowing God intimately.
David gave his son instructions to prepare him for the work that he was charged with.  David knew that the huge project that was before Solomon would require the right frame of mind. Solomon would be responsible for the building the Temple of God. If you are a leader and servant of God knowing Him intimately is essential for success.  The opposition, jealousy and  resentment that you’ll have to face from others must be met with a heart of  love.

God sees far beyond our outward appearance. 
He considers the condition of our heart, and He never stops loving us.  As Christians do we honor God with our work, but have hearts that are far from His purpose?  Are we truly committed to the work that God has placed before us, or do we complain because we have grown weary and our heart is no longer in it? Decide today to know God more intimately and you will find that His plans will become your plans as you discover the true meaning of joyful devotion. God hears our internal conversations; He knows exactly what we’re thinking when we put our hands to do His work. By connecting with God on an intimate level, you will experience freedom in worship and service. When you raise your hands in worship your mind will not hinder your honest praise, because your praise comes from a heart of love. God wants your heart, your mind,  your hands, and your all.

But the time is coming–indeed it’s here now–when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. John 4:23 (NLT)

Are you ready to worship and serve God with your whole heart and a willing mind?
