It is common to hear that God has no favorites, that He is not a respecter of persons. That is true; however, He does have intimates! The good news is that anyone, anywhere, anytime can be intimate with Jehovah, the Lord God!
God longs to hold us close. Jesus expressed this in his analogy of the hen and chickens (Matt. 23:37), “how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings….”
Hear the voice of God as he appeals to His children to draw closer!
Draw close enough to hear the beat of His heart,
to feel the heat of his love,
to smell the aroma of his presence
to touch the breast that breathes life anew.
to hear him say, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Accept his offer; rest under his wings today.
