Are You Diggin it?
I like to dig! Dig for bargains that is! My idea of a fun shopping excursion is spending a couple of hours at one of the many Goodwill Stores in San Antonio. That would drive some people up a wall. Like my husband. He can’t believe I would actually go into any store, much less Goodwill, and stay for that length of time. I can find some really cool stuff, but you gotta’ dig! I’m a digger. We should all be diggers! Where? The Word of God. The more we study, the more revelation, from God, will occur. We want revelation. The only way to get it is to dig and then dig some more. In other words, “Seek me and you shall find me. Knock and the door shall be open.”
My daughter, Sydney, had revelation recently. It was precious listening as she tried to explain this extraordinary event. I am not sure it can be explained when a Holy God meets you personally. Yes, Moses was the exception. I am quite sure none of us have ever heard God speak through a burning bush. Honestly, I am always on the lookout for something grand like a burning bush or a pillar of fire. Which is comical given I am relatively sure that if I ever saw one I would break the land speed record vacating the premises. Which would actually be two miracles given I like to limit my running opportunities.
Is this level of presentation needed or does God meet us right where we are? It was through studying scripture He revealed himself to Sydney. It was personal and it was intimate. She didn’t need the exact words to explain. It was her moment. It was her revelation. Digging deep brings depth to our relationship with God. She is only twelve, but it doesn’t matter how old or young we are. She wondered what God’s voice would be like. Would it be audible? Would it be instinctual? Would He be loud or soft spoken? When He revealed Himself to her she recognized it immediately.
Jesus says that his sheep will recognize His voice. We will know God’s voice when we dig deep, into His Word, and truly seek to know His character. When we become acquainted with His very nature, He enters into our actual experience. What an incredible God we serve that He desires to make Himself known to us.
This is just one of the many reasons we started Generation With A Name, LLC. It is our intent to equip this generation of young people with the promises of God through the stories of Biblical heroes and heroines. To this end we’ve written a children’s book “The Story of Ruth Through a Child’s Eyes” and an 18” Old Testament Biblical Ruth doll to bring the story alive. We wanted to show people that God will meet you in your situation.
We want little girls to play and interact with a biblical doll as they dig deep into the Biblical story of Ruth and Naomi. Ruth wanted to know Naomi’s Hebrew God and there was nothing that would stop her. God met Naomi, personally and intimately, right where she was in the middle of her despair and disappointment. We’ll call this her Mara moment. God met Ruth in the midst of Moab where she dug her leather sandals deep in the sand and would not let up. God showed himself faithful. Ruth was the Great-grandmother of King David. “Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.” Dig deep my friend.
