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.

YOU CAN PRAY THIS

Posted on June 26, 2020 at 6:50 AM


                                                                
 

As I sit at my computer this morning and speak to You Holy Spirit, I pray to live in continual awareness of Your Presence in me, of You being the leader and me being the follower. I have given this body over to You to use. As I sat here and prayed, the screen on the computer went dark, as it does to save energy when no activity is happening on it. As we walk through my day, there are times when awareness of You in me ‘goes dark’, that is, I am not consciously aware of Your Presence. So I want more of You... to be more aware of You all the time.


You created us so that our minds are single focus. They cannot think of two different things at the same time. So when I am thinking and performing my job at the hospital, I am not thinking of You. Perhaps it is that You, through me, are doing the job at the hospital. When I give You my self wholly, You can operate in me that way. So it is not me doing it, but You are doing the work. So my awareness of You is there, I just do not need to think with my conscious mind about You. We are not separate, but one as Jesus and the Father were/are One. And You Holy Spirit are of that oneness as well. So when I give myself wholly to You, in a way we also are one.


John 15:7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.


Jesus prayed for you and me:



John 17:20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in me and I am in You  May they also be in us   (here Jesus prays directly for us)

21 (?) that they may be one as we are one— I in them and You in me


 Message Bible John 17:20-23

I'm praying not only for them 
   But also for those who will believe in me 
   Because of them and their witness about me. 
   The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind— 
   Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, 
   So they might be one heart and mind with us. 
   Then the world might believe that you, in fact, sent me. 
   The same glory you gave me, I gave them, 
   So they'll be as unified and together as we are— 
   I in them and you in Me. 
   Then they'll be mature in this oneness, 
   And give the godless world evidence 
   That you've sent Me and loved them 
   In the same way you've loved me.


                                                       



Father, create in me correct understanding of Your Word. Reveal to me the message within the message of the Word. Allow truth to inhabit me. Show me how to be the person You purposed me to be.

Feelings are not reliable. I feel unworthy of Your Love my Lord. Yet I am Your son/daughter. So You love me. . .  because I am your child. It is nothing I achieved, nothing I earned, it is what/who I am. Thank You Lord! You Jesus have clothed me with Your righteousness, because I have accepted Your gift; Your death paid the entire price for my sin, changed my sinful nature to Your godly nature. Now I am worthy to come before the Father, to interact in love with Him, to sit on His lap with His arms around me, to be enfolded in His love. Because You changed my nature, I am now able to walk indwelled by You ~ You can indwell me because I have accepted Your gift Jesus and am capable of being holy. . . that is consecrated for Your work to show the world that You loved them enough to die for them. Your indwelling Presence flows through me as I give my life to You for Your use. Now I am rambling. I love You.

Thank You for the sunshine warmth of Your love! In it I feel cuddled in safety and caring, comfort, and contentment. I rest in this warmth of Your  Father ~ love.
