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.

DON'T WASTE THIS OPPORTUNITY

Posted on April 7, 2020 at 2:10 AM

                                                       

Good morning my precious Lord, my God, my All. I love You! I do not know what Your plan is for these days, nor how You will use the current circumstances, BUT I do know this about You Lord:


Isaiah 55:8-9 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

 

And I know this:

 You, Jesus, love me and I love You! You are the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Everything concerning us is in Your hands, so we should not be concerned for ourselves. Lord, I know You love us with a boundless love, and every second You are thinking of us. David knew You Lord, and here is what he shares:

 

Psalm 139:15-18 (AMPC)

15 My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery].

16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.

 17 How precious and weighty also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!

18 If I could count them, they would be more in number than the sand. When I awoke, [could I count to the end] I would still be with You.

 

Yes God’s love for us is always with us. Why would we fear or be anxious? Unless one has reduced God to human thoughts and powers and put him n a box, there is no reason to fear. He created the universe. Adam sinned and spoiled perfection for us human beings, but God knew he would, and even  before sin, God planned to send Jesus to bring love to us, to teach us, to cleanse us of sin, to free us from satan’s clutches restoring righteousness to us; in so doing we are made new creations, born again to enable us to see truth, to be made part of God’s family. He cares for us more than we can care for our family. So of course, He will never abandon us now or in the future.

                                        

                       


Hebrews 13:5 (AMPC)5 Let your [a]character or moral disposition be free from love of money [including greed, avarice, lust, and craving for earthly possessions] and be satisfied with your present [circumstances and with what you have];

 

for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]

 

If God has made a promise, He cannot break it. We can receive it or deny it, but know when we believe God, His promises are ours to grip tightly and not let go. Stand on His promises and we will have nothing to fear!

 

What causes us to be afraid? The enemy brings lies to our concepts using worldly logic and the media to cast trepidation and anxiety into us. Watching news all day about the virus and the deaths, and a negative future ~ fills our minds with negatives. Then it’s often the middle of the night when the devil  attacks, and bad news from the day's input rolls over and over like a roll-a-dex in our thoughts robbing us of healing sleep.

 

To counteract this we must fill our mind with positive Scriptures like those just above, and in the middle of the night attacks, speak them back to ourselves. “God loves me. He promises to take care of me and my family. He will never leave me without support! etc.”

 

The future holds many secrets, and in the world of today, it can be scary. We are facing a future without controls. It is an unknown like never before. The best, and in my humble opinion, the only answer is God. He knows the future AND He knows what is best for us. Anyone who does not have a relationship with God, I would highly advise that you begin to seek Him to truly know Him. He is a joy! He is with us constantly to protect us and care for us. When we are in relationship with HIm, we go to Him and He responds to us; we can have intercommunication with Him. You can’t know if you don’t try. Oh my friends, do not waste this opportunity to seek Him. 
Go to a quiet private place and call on Him telling Him of your eager desire to know Him.
