PostNot a Wizard

Sometimes I find myself thinking about God as if He were the Wizard of Oz.  And me, Dorothy, walking the Yellow Brick Road desperately trying to get to Him; planning ahead of time what I am going to ask of Him when I finally make it into His presence; hoping I will find favor in His sight.   Taking my friends along with me, assuring them He is what they need, but all along feeling unsure of my own status with the Mighty One.  Often feeling powerless and scared of the witch that swoops down, or the monkeys that creep up trying to destroy me.  Oh, and if I only had a pair of magic shoes that would take me back “home” to an easy, safe place.
 
Truth is better than a fairy tale.  I do not have a wizard god.  The true God, my God, is near.  Emmanuel.  I am welcome in His presence.  Anytime.  I never have to wait to get an appointment with Him. 
 
His arms toward me are always open.  Never crossed in disgust.  He knows what I need better than I do and is, without question, going to give it to me.
 
He has armed me with every weapon that I need to fight the “witches and monkeys”, and strengthens me for the fight.  He has assured me of victory if I will but use my weapons of war.
 
And one day, quite possibly in a flash, He is going to take me home to a safe and easy place.  No magical shoes needed.
