My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “LORD, I am coming.”
Psalms 27:8 (NLT)
Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship. It is a relationship with a loving God that desires to fellowship with us. This was His design since the beginning. David knew this. The Bible says of David that he was a man, “after God’s own heart.” But when you consider today’s passage, perhaps it would be better to say that God was a “God after David’s own heart.” David’s heart heard God saying, “Come and talk with me.” Do you hear the same? Do you sense that God is seeking you, that He desires to know you and for you to know Him? It is true. God does want your love and affection. It is His will that you worship Him, spend time with Him, and love Him. He is seeking you out. Today, say with David, “Lord, I am coming.”
Father, I desire to know You and to be known by You. Help me today to hear Your voice say to me, “Come and talk with me.” Help me to sense Your presence and spend time with You. In Jesus’ name. AMEN

The Our Father (slowly pray this)
Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever, Amen.
