He had a slightly different plan.
You know how some folks say that God showed up during a church service? Well, they’re right; He does. And it’s a glorious, all-encompassing, life-changing corporate event.
But, bless His Name, He’s not limited to the Sunday morning service. Sometimes He shows up when–and where–you least expect Him to: at home, in the office (Lord, in the office? Really?), in the car. Right when you think it’s going to be business as usual.
And it’s always a powerful, cleansing, one-on-one event. Just you and Him.
Loudly. Through tears. Semi-coherently. The Holy Spirit will translate.
As the tears flowed, a transaction and a transformation occurred.
The transaction is spiritual: we bring nothing but our emptiness to the altar; He fills us with yet another glimpse of His glory.
The transformation, too, is spiritual: from “normal” quiet time to an intense interaction with the Most High. As Paul described it, a change from glory to glory.
It really is all about Him. Why on earth do we think it could be about anything–or anyone–else?
