TALKING TO GOD

Posted on July 30, 2020 at 3:25 AM


                                                                    


The Spirit of God entered David like a rush of wind, God vitally empowering him for the rest of his life.

1 Samuel 16:13 MSG

 

Words to God:

Holy Spirit, you are like the wind; there is nothing of rigidity about You. You glide in and around different parts of my life filling, nudging, inspiring, and calling to me. You put a hunger in me for You; I desire You to fully empower my life, all the time. I ask for You to guide my decisions, thoughts, and actions every day, as I listen for Your direction and encouragement. Vitally empower me, Holy Spirit, for Your work!

 

God’s response:

Do you know my heart? I am with you now, my beloved child. Open your heart to My indwelling Spirit. Quiet your mind to the distractions of the world, and in the inner silence focus on My Word, as the Holy Spirit leads you. Focus, be still, and hear My words in your spirit. Obey Me, and My Holy Spirit will empower you.

 

Prayer:

In the quiet of the early morning, I seek Your heart, so I can speak my heart and hear Yours in return. O Holy Spirit, indeed I call for you to truly fill me! Replace today’s anxious thoughts with Your Word’s comfort. Enable me to trust You and feed my mind with Your Word. I need You to help me focus on You, Your Word, and Your love for me. What I truly desire is a more intimate relationship with You, and I need time with You to develop that. Show me where more time is hiding, so that we can arrange frequent appointments together. I need You!

 

Now may the God of peace [Who is the Author and the Giver of peace], ...strengthens (complete, perfect) and make you what you ought to be and equip you with everything good that you may carry out His will; [while He Himself ] works in you and accomplishes that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 13:20-21

 

Words to God:

What an awesome God You are! You put a purpose in my life and call me to acts of obedience, then You equip me: (a) You provide me with all the gifts required for the purpose; (b) You prepare me by presenting experiences that bring growth and understanding; (c) and best of all, You indwell me giving me opportunity to call on You anytime as You do Your internal work with my soul. Together these all enable me to discover my purpose, please You, and be fulfilled by accomplishing the purpose You created in me.

 

God’s response:

My child, remember, I know the end from the beginning. I already have good plans for you; obey Me and fear not. I’ve called you to fulfill a part of My plan for My people. My love flows over you and through you to others! As you are faithful to my call, so shall My will be carried out. Do not fear to go where I direct; I am always with You. Trust Me. Come forward and take that step I am calling you to, even though you cannot see the future result. Fear not. I AM with you. Come!

 

Prayer:

Lord, I know you are working in me. I bow down to Your will in my life, trusting You. Open the eyes of my understanding to Your call on my life. As I journal, Holy Spirit, lead my thoughts to reflect Your wisdom, Your understanding, and Your will.


                            



Absorb the Word

God’s blessings are so varied and shine in every aspect of our lives. He is our Builder, our Protector, our Guide, and our trustworthy Father, who burns with incredible love for us. As we read and meditate on the verses of the Bible, we acquire deeper, fuller understanding of God. His plan for us is a good one, and it can lead us throughout our lives. He is truly and amazingly personal with His truths and promises!

As you read the Bible, read it knowing it was written for you specifically. Allow the Bible to be a banquet you dine from each day. Consume each verse and digest it; nourish yourself and grow in joy and gladness. Let the power of the living Word emancipate you to live the life God purposed you to have. The Word reveals our blood-bought freedoms and our ability to enjoy the freedoms Jesus purchased.

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.
