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.

ONE CHOICE

Posted on April 6, 2020 at 1:05 AM

 

Woke up at 4:00 this morning and the wheel of worry began spinning in my brain. They took my money; can i get it back? Thankfully, I’m getting the knack of trusting my Lord. So my mind went to ~ My power is limited, but God’s power is unlimited. I then found a Psalm of David for help:


                                                           


Psalm 18:1-2 (NIV)

For the director of music. Of David the servant of the Lord. He sang to the Lord the words of this song when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said

 

1 I love you, Lord, my strength.

2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
    my God is my Rock, in whom I take refuge,
  my shield[b] Or Sovereign and the horn[c] [Horn here symbolizes strength. of my salvation, my stronghold].

 

I find David’s words, and they give me strength:

1 I love you, Lord, my strength.

2 The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
    my God is my Rock, in whom I take refuge,
  my shield[b]  Or Sovereign and the horn[c] [Horn here symbolizes strength. of my salvation, my stronghold].

 

As I traverse through this anxious time, I turn to my Lord for strength. He is my salvation. He removes the tension from my stomach, causes my shoulders to relax. I give Him my worry putting the whole situation in His hands, for He knows how it should work out for my good:

 

Romans 8:28 (TPT)

So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.

 

Trusting in God to work out the problem, I speak to my God. “Lord thank You for solving things so well. You love me my Father.” (This I know because He said so in His Word to me [and you as well)!

 




God would say to us:

My children, do not fear! In this time of uncertainty, remember it is no surprise to Me!. I have plans for you and for your nation. Rather than fear, lift your eyes to Me! See how I love you? See how faithful I have been to you? I keep my promises. My children, do not fear; just trust Me!


Psalm 18:2 from above "Horn"  symbolizes strength.

(One of my favorite Psalm verses) is:                                                                                               Psalm 138:8 He will perfect that which concerns me.


Then another Psalm of trust and  love:

 Psalm 139:5-10

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.

 

You can see David's love for the Lord!

Psalm 18:1-2 TPT

Lord, I passionately love you and I’m bonded to you, [c]
for now you’ve become my power!


2 You’re as real to me as bedrock beneath my feet,
like a castle on a cliff, my forever firm fortress,
my mountain of hiding, my pathway of escape,
my tower of rescue where none can reach me.


My secret strength and shield around me,
you are salvation’s ray of brightness shining on the hillside,[d]
always the champion of my cause.

 Footnotes:

Psalm 18:1 This magnificent poem is so important to the Holy Spirit that it appears twice in the Bible. You will find it again in 2 Sam. 22. 


                            


God is God. In this time of fear and lack of control ~ yes we like to be in control ~ but this virus cannot be controlled. So it all boils down to trust. If we want to maintain peace in our lives, our only choice is to trust the Almighty. If you do not know Him, then it’s time to seek Him. Seek and you shall find. You can leave me a message.
