A Most Excellent Aroma

incenseRevelation 5:8 shows 24 elders bowing at the feet of the Lamb carrying “golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.” Allow me a few quick observations. One, it doesn’t say what those prayers were. Two, it didn’t say those prayers made one bit of difference. And three, whatever was said, the aroma was very pleasing to the Lamb and to the One sitting on throne.
Cutting to the chase, simply talking to God brings a smile to His face. It doesn’t matter what we say. The mere fact we’re talking with Him brings Him pleasure.
So often we make prayer out to be a bigger deal than it is. We have to make time for it. We’ve got to get it done. We don’t know what to say or feel so inadequate doing it so we don’t. Folks, we are secure children of God whose Daddy loves to hear our voice!
I’m not always enthralled with what my children say, but I simply love the fact that they’re even talking with me! As we talk with Jesus and the Father throughout our day no matter where we are, they love it. They’re smiling. They’re getting a tremendous kick out of hearing from us.
Go ahead make God’s day…talk with Him while you’re driving, doing the dishes, mowing the lawn, paying bills, at your work desk, etc. It doesn’t matter where or how important or insignificant you think it is. He loves it when we simply talk with Him. Kind of gives a new spin on “pray without ceasing” doesn’t it?
