I thank God we are living in an age with so many opportunities. Not only do we get things we need, but also some of the things we want. Many of our young people let us know they want it, and they want it, now. Have you ever heard a child pouting or screaming, “I want it now?” “Give it to me, now!”
This is not so uncommon for a child, but in this techno/cyber age, not only are our children pouting and shouting “I want it now,” so are we. Simply put, we’re living in a day God has given us the wisdom that all we have to do is push a button, wave a hand, or speak to a screen. We also can click or touch, email, text, tweet or even slide a card. He has made it possible that we can get some things in an instant. If we can’t, we also may find ourselves screaming, “I want it now!”
So, what do we really want, now? It appears we want everything, but God. I’m here to tell you, He is available. He is the ‘Now” God. We don’t have to wait, pout, or scream. Just say in our hearts, “I want You now, Lord Jesus. I accept You as my Savior.” He’ll be there, faster than a wave of the hand, push of a button, tweet, text, or click of a finger, even before you utter a word. Just open your heart, He’ll fill it without delay. He’s faithful to be right there, right now.
“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion (Hebrews 3:15 ESV).
In God, I will keep on thanking Him for being the “Now” God. By Hertistine Washington/ keeponthanking.com
