1 Enjoy Your Creator
The greatest wonder of the universe is that the God who created it longs to have a moment by moment fellowship with us! Imagine walking and talking with the One who fashioned trillions of stars and knows each one by name. Imagine learning about His character and being able to ask Him questions about every detail of our life. Nothing is too great or too small for His loving heart. He wants to reveal the hidden wisdom of Scripture to us so that we will be better equipped to carry out the great works for which He created us.
The psalmist testified, ". . . in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore" (Psalm 16:11).
This fellowship with God is the foundation of true health. God has promised that if we walk in harmony with Him and His way of life, we will enjoy the power and the health that is needed to fulfill the purposes for which He created us. Paul responded to this promise by saying, "Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me" (II Corinthians 12:9).
God's nature is love, and true love never demands or forces love in return. Therefore, God has given us a free will to either accept or reject Him. In rejecting Him, we will experience mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual consequences of that choice.
