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.

SAME ITCHY EARS TODAY

Posted on November 6, 2019 at 7:05 AM


                                               


As I was reading this Scripture, it sounded familiar:

2 Tim 4:3 For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold,  And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions.


Paul, the Apostle, wrote these words , and I guess mankind does not change much, for today is no different. Many still have' itching ears'. There are an increasing number of  false teachings around for people to glum onto, and there are those who still seek teachings that satisfy what they want to hear to give validity to the life they want to live. It is sad, because, Lord, Your truth brings immense satisfaction to the soul and a fullness of joy to the heart.


Your truth merits eternal rewards; no false teaching does. When Your Word is refused as truth, one must then decide according to the soul and the flesh what they want to do, say and believe. The enemy takes joyful glee in that; for he is a master at manipulating and implanting deceptive and false thoughts into unprotected minds.


                             


You know in sci-fi they have had episodes where one person puts a helmet like device on, turns on the machine and implants knowledge into themselves or others. Wish I could implant all I know to be true of You God into others. You are so loving, so good, so faithful!


Yes, the enemy does a masterful job of deceiving people and speaks satisfactory lies into their minds, just as it did with Adam and Eve. They bit, and many today take bites from the same apple. They do not trust Father God. It boils down to that. So many fears. People are afraid to entrust their lives to Him. They believe they can do a better job of living their lives than God can if they give Him control. They do not know the extent of His love for us all, and the end results of our choices. Yes, when one knows His love and His character, trusting Him becomes easier.

 

                                                                       


Despite what Jesus did for us. . .  the enemy has managed to whitewash, to cover, to demote it into some kind of ritual or fiction. If they could truly grasp the intense pain You, Jesus, were willing and did endure for us~so intense You sweat blood in the garden just thinking of what was to come. When the pain became nearly intolerable as the whip took bites out of Your flesh, you thought of us and your love for us kept You going. As they impaled You on the cross with those huge nails crushing bones, causing nerve endings screaming pain, You thought of us and were empowered to continue on with Your mission of salvation. As You took on all our sin, the Father had to leave You, and the devastation of that emptiness was so intense it nearly broke You entirely.


                               


Jesus did all that needed to be done to save us, to make it possible for us to enter the Lord God’s presence and receive His loving blessings and powerful revelations in this earthly life and the next one to come.


The love of God is so incredibly huge, we cannot begin to comprehend it. Yet it is in the knowing that we are able to trust. God is so magnificent, enormous and powerful and He also treasures us as His precious children. How can we not trust Him?

              

                                                        


My friends, explore the gains to those who accept, God's Son Jesus as their Savior, the peace, the rest, the total cleansing of the soul, and the eternal rewards that will come.
