Let others see God in you!
“Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”
The prophet Zechariah writes, “Many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek the Lord…saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you'” (vv. 22-23 NKJV). When people see God at work in your life, they'll be drawn to you. It happened to a short-order cook named Nicholas Herman. Dissatisfied with his life, he worried constantly about whether or not he was even saved. Then one day as he studied a tree, he was struck by the truth in Psalm 1:3: that the secret to growing spiritually lies in being rooted and grounded in God. So he decided to make his life an experiment in what he termed “the habitual, silent, secret conversation of the soul with God.” Today he's better known as Brother Lawrence, the name his friends gave him. Chances are, you've heard of him and his writings. Although he spent his life in obscurity working in a monastery kitchen, how he interacted with God caused people from around the world to long to know God like he did. His friends said he “found God everywhere…as much while repairing shoes as…praying with the community.” And after he died they compiled a book of his letters and conversations called The Practice of the Presence of God. It's one of the most widely read books of the last four centuries. Jesus said, “If I am lifted up…will draw all peoples to Myself” (Jn 12:32 NKJV). The more you cultivate the presence of God in your life, the more others will be attracted to Him. So, let others see God in you!
Zechariah 8:23 New King James Version (NKJV)
“Thus says the Lord of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the [a]sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.” ’ ”
