God's Tender Love

Posted on April 10, 2015 at 11:10 AM

My cell phone just blew an alert; I thought I had deleted alerts for today. The thought pinging through my mind was: ‘sometimes it just has a mind of it’s own’. Then it dawned on me~ I wonder if sometimes I seem that way to Holy Spirit. He teaches me and guides me and I try and follow His directions, but other times I go off on my own and forget to consult Him~ I have a mind of my own.

But that is not what I truly desire. I want to always travel in Your direction Holy One! I do not want a mind of my own~ I submit myself and my mind to You, Holy Spirit, to direct it according to Your ways, to honor You! It is my yearning to cling to You like a child to its mom. I want to expand my spirit to touch You and feel Your touch in me.


Lord, I sense Your majesty in the night time sky; it has a special way of bringing awe to my soul. On a beautiful starry night it’s like looking up and seeing forever. God who always was and always will be, the Alpha and the Omega, You fashioned it all!

From earth we see the tiny diamond lights, but Hubble Telescope brought us up close and personal with some of the stunning beauty that exists in space. I think, Father, You are excited to see us discover the gifts You fashioned and then hid in far reaches of the universe for us to find and enjoy~ kinda like an Easter egg hunt when we were kids. Our Father God’s love extends to each of us.

Easter egg hunt~ perhaps not everyone grew up with this: part of the Easter celebration was a teaching for children about how Jesus resurrection signaled our new birth. Symbolically an egg represents a birth as a chick emerges breaking the shell and entering life outside the tomb. Part of the ritual involved coloring the cooked eggs with pastel colors of dye. Then on Easter morning the eggs were hidden for the children to find~ thus ‘Easter egg hunt’.

If we could imagine how huge is our Father God’s love for us, we would be overwhelmed. My friends, seek His face, His character, His love. He is not harsh or hard, He is just, kind and caring as Jesus said:

Matthew 11:29-30 (AMP)

Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek)

and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.

30 For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good—not harsh, hard, sharp,

or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant),

and My burden is light and easy to be borne.

Jesus expresses God love to us. That incredible love includes salvation and the presence of God Himself indwelling us.


If we accept the gift Jesus died to give us, we can be reborn a new creature and experience the indwelling of God Himself. Life becomes an exciting adventure with God.

Have you begun this marvelous journey with your Creator? Today is a great day to accept His gift and join with Jesus in a Spirit filled life!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
