Stepping Stones to the King

moments

Every moment in life is an opportunity to direct our eyes, our hearts, our steps towards a God who is greater.

The longer I live and the further up this road I travel, the more I believe this.

These moments we have.

Moments that turn into minutes, minutes that turn into hours, hours that turn into days, days that turn into weeks, weeks that turn into seasons.

All of them. Every single breath we breathe.

Sometimes we label the moments and we quickly move on.

good luck
bad luck
tragedy
it’s just a part of life

Yet, whenever we quickly dismiss, we miss an opportunity to see Him standing there. Ready for us to take notice, ready for us to thank, ready for us to worship, ready for us to kneel down to, ready to hear our cries for help or mercy or comfort, ready to rescue and save.

He stands ready…for us…during every single moment. Because He is KING over moments and moments become the stepping-stones designed to introduce our heart to HIS heart. 

“I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the perception of your mind may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saints,  and what is the immeasurable greatness of His power to us who believe, according to the working of His vast strength.” (Ephesians 1: 17-19)

“I pray that He may grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power in the inner man through His Spirit, and that the Messiah may dwell in your hearts through faith. I pray that you, being rooted and firmly established in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love, and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us—  to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3: 16-21)
