Worldly Trinkets

“Does a maiden forget her jewellery, a bride her wedding ornaments? Yet My people have forgotten Me, days without number” (Jeremiah 2:32).

What tawdriness. How can anyone compare even the most beautiful thing this world can offer with Your beauty. You are of supreme worth, so far above anything we could ever imagine.

Are you so different to My people of old? Do you realise how much of your world determines what you do? Sure, you have boundaries. You know what is right and wrong. But in the ordinary things of life, am I your master or your slave? Do you bother to check with Me what you do with your time, your money, your abilities? Or do you follow the well worn path of the culture you are in, albeit a Christian culture, then expect Me to bless it all?

Do not fear that to give Me control of your life means I will suddenly tear all that is familiar away from you. Am I not a father, a friend, a shepherd who cares for his own? Truth is, I am longing for a closer fellowship with you, to be included in all of your life. I want to walk together with you through each day, not just meet you briefly for an appointment at a set time. I want to talk with you and have you talk with Me as friends do. I want to share with you the special things I have planned for you as you follow My leading. You are My beloved (Song of Solomon 7:10).
