God is Not a Buffet

I heard it said the other day that, “God is not a buffet.”.  And that made me think, “Do I take Him for granted, knowing that He is readily available in multitude? Where I can get exactly what I need from Him and leave off anything that I don’t.”  Where I can pick and choose what verses that I want to hang on to and choose which ones I would rather forget.   Like the buffet in the picture, all that lovely food!  I could fill myself to the brim with all the things I love and leave off those not so appealing prunes.

In reality there is only 1 thing in that picture of the buffet that I need.  There is only 1 things that will satisfy my every need.  There is only one thing that I know would sustain me.  Can you see it?  I challenge you to not treat God as a buffet in your life.  Just as I challenge myself.  To not pick and choose those things that He gives to me in multitude but to take graciously everything He has to give.  To be grateful for all that He is and all that He has made me.

Ephesians 1:3 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,

Hebrews 10:23 

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.

I am grateful! I pray Lord that I will share Your goodness with others. Amen!
