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.

GOD IS MOVING ON YOUR BEHALF

Posted on June 15, 2020 at 12:30 AM

                                                                      



In looking at email this morning I came across this Global Prayer Alert Network. It was so good that I decided to share it. See what you think:
 

GPAN 6/12/20

Pastor Tim…

Good morning, everybody. Welcome. . . .  I believe that you’re going to be blessed. I just want to remind you of all the goodness of God. No matter what you’re facing or what you’re dealing with, or what you’re going through, God is good. He loves you. He cares about you. He knows what you’re going through. And He’s got exactly what you need. So just look up, because He is where our help comes from. He never, never fails. He said He would never leave us, never forsake us.


Hebrews 13:5 Amplified Bible

 Let your character [your moral essence, your inner nature] be free from the love of money [shun greed—be financially ethical], being content with what you have; for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you [nor give you up nor leave you without support, nor will I in any degree leave you helpless], nor will I forsake or let you down or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”


 

 

 He’s always for us, never against us. He’s faithful. And His mercies are new each and every morning. Isn’t that good news? God is so good. Maybe we should start this morning by singing about the goodness of the Lord.



Sing ~  I love You, Lord… Your mercy never fails me… All my days, I’ve been held in Your hands… From the moment that I wake up till I lay my head, I will sing of the goodness of my God… You are good and Your mercy endures forever… ♪


That’s what they sang when King Solomon dedicated the temple. The Bible says when all the choir and the instrumentalists and the priests and the congregation all lifted up their voice together, they sang “For the Lord is good and His mercy endures forever.”

 

And when they came into one accord and sang that and gave praise out of their hearts to the Lord, it says the glory of the Lord came in such a manner they couldn’t even stand in His presence. So in spite of our circumstances and in spite of how we feel, when we just lift up our hearts and praise and declare the goodness of the Lord,


I’m telling you, He delights in that. He delights in our praise. Because we’re choosing to overcome. To overcome our circumstances… to overcome our feelings. And we’re making up our mind that we’re going to praise God because He’s good and His mercy endures forever.


                                


When we lift up our praise, the enemy has to flee. God moves on our behalf. He comes in like a flood and blesses us. Moves on our behalf. Changes and rearranges things. The enemy has to flee. He cannot stand in His presence. It shuts the devil up. Whoo! I’m telling you, praise changes things. Praise will change your circumstances. God will take what the enemy meant for evil and He’ll turn it around for your good.


If you’ll just release your praise to Him, you just lift up your heart, just praise Him this morning and declare the goodness of the Lord, He’s going to move because He’s always moving even when you can’t see it. He’s moving. Even when you don’t feel it, He’s moving. Because that’s who He is and that’s what He does. He’s moving on your behalf.


                                                   


What a good word!! Are you in a circumstance that feels hopeless? Is desperation leading you? My friend, turn your eyes upon God; He loves you completely, and He alone can help you. Not only can He, but He will. Trust Him. What have you got to lose? To God, you are His beloved child! He is just waiting for you to come to Him. Even if you've done wrong, He loves you! Talk about it all to your Father Who cares for you.
