Loving God through Quiet Adoration
“Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders” (Deut. 33:12). “Resting between God’s shoulders” is the favorite pastime of the Christ-follower who considers him/herself a Contemplative. He or she wants to enjoy God and learn to love God in even deeper ways. The psalmist David expresses the contemplative desire when he writes, “O God, You are my God; I shall seek you earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for you..." (Ps. 63 NASB). The love relationship that fuels the contemplative is not hesitant and done out of a sense of obligation. It is simply an appreciation for Christ that empties into unadulterated adoration. Time is one of the best gifts we can give and the Contemplative wants to give God plenty.
