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.

LIFE'S GUIDE

Posted on October 13, 2019 at 3:20 AM


                                                                                      


Are you facing a problem? Our amazing God loves us so much, He wants to help us live our life and solve our ptoblems. God actually gave us an Owners Manual on how to get the most out of life. It’s called the Bible. and God’s Word is so good! It is for teaching and inspiring. Not only that, but when we accept Jesus gift of salvation we also are given the Holy Spirit to live in us as a Guide, Teacher, Mentor, Protector, Comforter.


                                                                   


Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, Third Person of the Godhead. It’s a little difficult to understand. But many things are 3 in one: an egg: shell, egg white, and the yolk. Water is liquid, gas (steam), and solid (snow or ice.) Humans have a body, a soul, and a spirit. Anyway, our God loves us each uniquely. Yes, He loves all His kids, but because He loves us all does not mean that one makes up for another. He does not want to lose any of us, for we are each special to Him. His Spirit indwells us when we accept Jesus as His Son and our Savior.

 

                                                            


When we face situations in life, we can take them to God and He is right there to help us to fix them, and the Bible is filled with His personal Word to us on how to do that. With Holy Spirit as our guide, He will lead us right to where the correct Scripture is. Let’s look at the first five verses of the Hebrew 12 Scripture.


Hebrews 12:1-5 (TPT)     The Great Cloud of Witnesses

1.As for us, we have all of these great witnesses[a] who encircle us like clouds. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us[b] and the sin we so easily fall into.[c] Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race[d] with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us.[e]

 

Verses can be understood more deeply from the [Footnotes] So what does this verse mean? Let's chck out the Footnotes for these verses.

So we must “let go of every wound that has pierced us [b] and the sin we so easily fall into”. Hebrews 12:1 Or “get rid of every arrow tip in us.” The implication is carrying an arrow tip inside a wound~ that weighs us down and keeps us from running our race with freedom.


 

                                    


“and the sin we so easily fall into”: Hebrews 12:1 Or “the sin that so cleverly entangles us.” The Aramaic can be translated “the sin that is ready [and waiting] for us.” If this is speaking of one sin, the context would point to the sin of unbelief and doubting God’s promises.





“Then we will be able to run life’s marathon race [d] with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us.” [e]

Or “obstacle course.” The Greek word agona means agony or conflict. The assumption is this race will not be easy, but the proper path to run has been set before us. The Aramaic can be translated:

the race [personally] appointed to us” God has a destiny for each of us that we are to give ourselves fully to reach.


2 We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection.[f] His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be His,[g] He endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation,[h] and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!


Verse 2:  We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith’s perfection

OrHe is the pioneer and perfecter of faith.


                                       


His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be His, He endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, This was the joy of our salvation. He placed before His eyes the bliss we would forever share together with Him, which empowered Him to go through His agony, The Greek is “thinking nothing of its shame.”

and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God! He is now

 

 3 So consider carefully how Jesus faced such intense opposition from sinners who opposed their own souls,[i] so that you won’t become worn down and cave in under life’s pressures. Or “those who were their own stumbling block.” As translated from the Aramaic. Refuse to belief.


4 After all, you have not yet reached the point of sweating blood[j]

Or “resisting until blood. Dreading the future so strongly as Jesus did that He sweat great drops of blood contemplating the cross.

 

“in your opposition to sin." translated “Don’t let your soul tremble [with dread] when your loyalty strays from Him.”

 

5 And have you forgotten his encouraging words spoken to you as his children? He said,

My child, don’t underestimate the value
  of the discipline and training of the Lord God,
 or get depressed when he has to correct you.[k]


                     

 

My friends, by meditating on each verse, we can gain understanding and apply verses to our own life. This was just an example of a way to study the Bible.


                                  



Take time to ask Holy Spirit to be your guide and follow His lead. Spend time with Him as you set an appointment each day to spend with our Lord; make it an important comittment.



                                                                        

                                                    Enjoy, my friends!
