If I had a dollar for every time someone “said” they were coming to visit me, I would be rich. Filthy rich! So many times, I’ve had friends say they were waiting on an “invitation” to visit me. Whether I have been in Tennessee, Alabama, or Georgia, here has always been my reply “You have an open invitation; come whenever you want”.
How many of us give God that same kind of open invitation in our lives? Yes, you may be a believer and yes, He is God— all knowing, all powerful, ever present. He reigns over all areas of our lives no matter what. I mean, it is written that God even knows the number of hairs on our head! (Luke 12:7) You can’t get more invested than that lol. Yet, just like many of my friends have wanted—maybe God desires an “invitation” into every aspect our lives as well.
Well, what does an invitation to God actually mean? And what does it look like? It means that you are trusting God to take the wheel. It means you are confident in His power and infinite wisdom regarding all matters. It means that you give Him permission to help you fight all battles against all enemies (those known and unknown). An open invitation can look like or be a prayer. It can also be a declaration or a demonstration of faith no matter where you are, who you are with, or what you are doing.
I truly believe that God is concerned with every detail of our lives….. Remember the whole “hairs on our head” thing? (Luke 12:7). He wants to be on our jobs with us. He wants to be the center of our marriages. He wants to help us with our familial relationships. He even wants to help us decide where to live and where to attend church. He loves us so very much and wants to participate in our lives in every way. Wouldn’t it be nice to surrender to His Will and His Way for our entire life? Wouldn’t it be nice to give God an OPEN INVITATION?
If you agree, say this with me: God, you are welcome here. Yes, here! You have an open invitation on my job, in my home, at my church, in my community, everywhere I am. No matter what I am doing or who I am with, I am inviting you to participate in every aspect of my life. I give you free reign over it all God; for you know what is best for me. This is my open invitation to you. Please accept it.
Psssssst, here’s a little secret; I’ve known Him to always accept and RSVP. And He even brings gifts! Lol. Blessings on top of blessings!
May your eyes, your head, and your spirit always be LIFTED!
