Walking on Tiptoe

January 09, 2023
Guard your steps as you go to the house of God, and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools.
Ecclesiastes 5:1

How many of us truly “guard our steps” when we go into God’s house? When you enter a worship service, do you pause to offer a little prayer, “Lord, speak to me today?” I have discovered that when we do that, it is amazing how God will speak to us. We need to come into God’s house, into His presence, with a sense of anticipation that He is going to do something in our lives. Or perhaps that He will change something or convict us of something so we will move in a different direction.

We know how children will stand “on tiptoe” with anticipation when they go to a birthday party or wait for Christmas. I think God wants us to do the same when we come to church. We come with what I call “tip-toe” anticipation. When we do that, God will speak to us every time.
