Meet God Where You Are



Meet God where you are.


So often many of us, me too, think we need to do A, B and C and then we’ll have it together enough to go to God. We don’t have to life figured out before meeting God.


Meeting God where we are should be second nature, but for some reason and in certain seasons, it seems hard.


I remember one time in college, my friend and I had a falling out, and I knew I needed to fix things and figure stuff out for myself, but I didn’t. I stood my ground and tried hard to just keep living life through it. Until one day, I realized that the small prayers I was praying were misfocused and not what they needed to be. I wasn’t being truthful with myself about the work that needed to be done in me.


Then, one day, I finally fell on my knees, face on the ground, literally, to God. God was there waiting for me. I didn’t need to have everything in order like I thought I did before I went to Him. So often, we can think from time to time, "I need to have all these things checked off, and then I’ll be ready to go to God." But really, we just need to meet Him where we are.


Ephesians 1:8 – “He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.”

When we go to God we can know that He will shower us with kindness and wisdom.


We can forget that God, the creator of all things, knows who we are in every aspect. It is even in the Bible, yet we forget.

A good example is when Jesus met the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4:1-38. Jesus knew who she was; she just went for water, and He told her all about who she was because He knew her and then offered her His life-giving water.

In John 4:13-14, it says, “Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.’”


God gives life and forms us, so in that, we need to remember that we don’t have to have it all together, and we can meet Him wherever we are in life.


Fear, shame, regret, sorrow—these and so many more things can hinder us from going to God.

When I was younger, I was scared, worried, and fearful of going to my parents about things because I thought if I told them, they would get upset with me, which no one wants their parents to be upset with them. But even more than that, we don’t want our parents to be disappointed in us. That word "disappointment" holds a lot of weight in it.


So, when I started working on my relationship with God, I had to overcome that thought process. God does not get disappointed in us, and also, I had to come to grips with the fact that nothing is hidden from God. Both of these are deep thoughts.


Hebrews 4:13 says, “Nothing in all creation is hidden from God.”


We don’t need to have our checklist marked and everything just right and perfect before going to God. We are imperfect people, and God wants us to come to Him with our messy imperfections so He can put us back together with His loving and righteous right hand.
