Have you had your Joy Juice today? Will that be dine-in or carry-out?
Many restaurants offer their food items from their menus to be served as you sit at their tables OR you can take it home to yours. Did you know that God wants you to experience both dine-in and carry-out, spiritually speaking?
To dine with God is to “taste and see” His goodness; to spend intimate, personal time with Him as you converse with Him in prayer and listen as He speaks to you through His Word (the Scriptures).
When we are adequately nourished by being filled with His wisdom and love, we are set to “carry-out”. The joyful experience of carry-out is that there is always enough to share with others, regardless of how big their spiritual appetites!
I suggest that we take advantage of both options. We need to consistently dine-in with God---not “fast food” or “drive through” style. Let’s make time for a nice, leisurely meal tasting and savoring every crumb! “Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.” says Psalm 34:8. And of course, Joy Juice is always the drink of choice!
After we’ve spent time dining with God, we will be filled to overflowing and ready to “carry-out” to others along our way! Pray about the person(s) God wants you to bless today with a serving of His delicious love and joy.
When you place your order, whether it’s dine-in or carry-out, be sure to savor every morsel of God’s goodness and joy!
