The power of a fragrance, lies within the concentration of its oil. The greater the concentration, the more fragrant the smell. When we desire to linger in God’s presence, we open an entirely new realm of intimacy. Graduating us from seeking God on a circumstantial basis, to a relational one.
When lingering in the presence of the Lord, His scent overtakes us. The stench of who we once were fades away. Only leaving behind, His goodness. A fragrance so sweet, that it captivates the nostrils of all those we encounter. Openly inviting them, into their own relationship with Him.
As Kingdom Builders, we must desire to carry the fragrance of God. The more of Him we carry, the greater impact we will have on those around us.
So may we learn to linger in God’s presence, for the sake of the Kingdom…
“My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.”
Psalm 84:2 NIV
“One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.”
Psalm 27:4 NIV
