What if I said, “Stop praying?” What if I told you to stop talking at God for a while, but instead to take a long, hard look at Him before you speak another word? Solomon warned us not to rush into God’s presence with words. ~Francis Chan in Crazy Love, p. 25
And just contemplate His beauty.
Set aside the requests and just marvel.
Don’t even speak of gratitude.
Don’t struggle to hear Him speak.
Just gaze at Him.
In His creation.
In His Word.
His detailed handiwork.
His masterful artistry.
His colorful creativity.
The magnitude of His majesty.
His glory in the galaxies.
The greatness of the great I AM.
Whatever God’s reasons for such diversity, creativity, and sophistication in the universe, on earth, and in our own bodies, the point of it all is His glory. ~Francis Chan in Crazy Love, p. 28
For just a moment.
Just bask in His presence
And be silent before Him.
Blessed God, Israel’s God, the one and only wonder-working God!
Blessed always his blazing glory!
All earth brims with his glory.
Yes and Yes and Yes.
~Psalm 72:18 (Message)
