Habit 7: Enjoy God

Do you take daily delight in your relationship with God? He wants to be enjoyed by us. This is the most marvelous relationship we can ever have and yet we usually miss out on all God has in store because we are so focused on the material realm.

Our God is invisible but His daily involvement in our lives and presence is obvious to a discerning observer. There are several ways you can enjoy God moment by moment throughout every day.

Delight in God’s Presence:

Enjoy being aware that He is constantly with you.

Ask the Holy Spirit to make the following scriptures a reality in your life. Cultivate the art of enjoying our invisible, magnificent God.

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD. (Psalm 89:15, NIV)

Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16, NIV)

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, ‘Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,’ even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you. (Psalm 139:7-12, NIV)

The LORD replied, ‘My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.’ (Exodus 33:14, NIV)

… And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:20, NIV)

You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. (Psalm 16:11, NIV).

Surely you have granted him eternal blessings and made him glad with the joy of your presence. (Psalm 21:6, NIV).

You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. (1 Peter 1:8, NLTSE)

Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him. (John 14:21, NIV)

Throughout each day, are you conscious of God’s presence? How do you acknowledge Him? How do you relate to Him?
