Every relationship turns sour when the absence of communion is assuaged with personality structure, ceremony, or just plain responsibility. Do not replace communion with methods. Marriage that is reduced to responsibility or jobs that mean nothing more than a paycheck lead to drudgery, disappointment and boredom. The solution does not lie primarily in the outward arrangement of things, but rather in communion. God is beautiful for situations (2).
Our tendency is to displace communion with details of life. “My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word” (Psalm 119:25). The result is what statisticians call a “scattering effect,” meaning that our neglect has an impact on every person living.
Let God be your life and major preoccupation in everything you do. Only He can deal with every detail. Communion with God will heal your relationships, give you grace to turn the other cheek and give you a burden for the world’s lost. On the other hand, 96 percent of the world’s projects never leave the drawing board. Broken promises, broken hearts, a lack of planning and resources have caused many to be disillusioned because they have not communed with God. “Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered” (Psalm 68:1a). Arise with God through the Holy Spirit at Calvary. Your communion with God will produce His action in your life.
