"Day and night they never stop saying: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come." –Revelation 4:8
"We see that it is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.” ― Kallistos Ware
The dictionary defines fascination as “the state of feeling an intense interest in something.” In all of our lives we have had moments when we were fascinated. Maybe it was a fascinating TV show, a fascinating piece of art, or a fascinating person we met. We all know what eventually happens. The fascination fades. This is by design. God has made creation to point beyond itself to Him. Every moment creation fascinates us is a clue that there is One who is the Ultimate Fascination. Every time our fascination fades is a reminder that God is the Unfading Fascination.
Boredom is our heart’s way of saying we need to worship. If you find yourself bored with life have you ever considered this is an indirect way God is saying you need more worship? The good news is that we do not have to formally worship in a church setting (though that is a very good thing) to worship. A spiritual discipline I have been experimenting with lately is to throughout my day to look for ways to fascinate my mind with God. The other day morning I happened to glance out my window and saw the houses on my street. My mind was fascinated by the God who is completely attentive to what is going on in every house and knows every persons routine. The other day I was reading the book of Genesis and became fascinated by how God weaves his plan through many generations. I wondered how my life will fit into his plan for future generations. This is my prayer for you this month that you would find Him to be your ultimate fascination.
