GET HIGH ON GOD
The talk of the world –
The talk of the community –
The talk of people all ages, races and places –
Let us get high and have a good time!
Some get high on comfort food,
Some get high on illegal food –
Namely alcohol or drugs hoping for a better mood –
But the question is: why not get high on God?
The talk of one who knows peace and satisfaction
Should be that which offers a high like no other –
A high given only when one is totally full of the Spirit –
Infilled, infused, empowered and endued!
Some may find the fullness of the Spirit comes
From those quiet and alone moments with God –
Others may find it when with dear Christian sister or brother –
And still another may find it when uplifted by worshipful song and praise!
Get high on God today –
It will keep the enemy at bay –
Do not allow for any delay –
There may not be another day –
As life may quickly be snatched away –
Just let God show you the way!
Ephesians 3:18-20 (NLT)
“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think”.
When I am out and about in the world of people I often here the term ‘get high.’ At times I wonder who, if anyone, really understands or has a definition of what that phrase really entails or means. I suspect that for every person the meaning is different. It depends on one’s life’s experience, past and/or present and possibly how involved and/or uninvolved one was/is in those experiences. In our world we somehow seem to expect that life should be good or better and some may even think that it should be the ‘best’ because of what they have or have not done or because of who they are and/or where they live. From the perspective of these verses it would seem that God desires that it is in Him we find fullness of life, in Him we would find the ‘high’ that we need to get through this life here on this earth. It is indeed that which would help us accomplish God’s plan in and through us for this day as well as every day.
So may I encourage you….may I invite you…..the best ‘high’ in life today is ‘to get high on/with God’. Will you join this journey today?
