I’ve worked in places where I see my boss once a week.
I’ve had jobs where I see them only now and then.
I’ve also worked side by side with my manager where dialog is constant, adjustments and directives a steady stream.
If I could choose, I’d take the latter every time.
Spiritually speaking, I do best when I’m living similarly, in constant dialog with my Lord and Master.
There’s something especially nice about God being able to prompt or tell me something here and now, instead of at next week’s meeting. When I’m attentive –if I don’t get too busy to listen for Him— it’s the best way to live.
I guess you could say living this way is how I apply Paul’s instruction:
Pray without ceasing; 1 Thes. 5:17 NASB-U
Keep on praying. NLT
Pray unceasingly; Darby
Never stop praying. God’s Word
There’s something wonderful about asking God if I should do this first or that. About checking in with Him every time I turn around; not because I’m not confident, but because I want to be Supremely confident. Confident because I’m in constant dialog with the Supreme One. It makes all the difference in the world when I remember to stay in constant contact with Him.
