Some might think the God of the universe who created the stars and the moon is beyond our ability to communicate with personally. This notion is propagated by spiritual mysticism that pervades modern culture and insinuates God is like the wind and is an impersonal natural force. Almighty God might be hard for you to imagine having a conversation with, but you can. Even though Godís fingerprint is on His creation, His creation is not Him; no more than you are the picture you paint or letter you write.
Danielís vision of Jesus and His Father in heaven quoted in Daniel 7:13 is dynamic as it states, behold one like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. Then He was given dominion and glory and a kingdom that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed. From New Testament passages we know the Son of Man is Jesus who became like man to be made a sacrifice for manís sin. Through this act Jesus served Godís creation like a big brother whoís willing to take the whipping the family of man deserves having disobeying the Father, who is the Ancient of Days.
Go ahead and take it personally, friend. God sent is His to die for you and wants to speak to your heart each and every day to help you through the tough times in life and celebrate the revelation of His truth and majesty in your life by giving you a peace and joy that canít be diminished by any trial that might come to plague you. Godís power is not random, nor can it be conjured up or accessed through mere ritual. So letís not dishonor God to get some power from Him without encountering His intimate presence. You canít have one without the other. Every relationship takes some commitment. I encourage you to not keep God at an armís length any longer.
