Father God,

You are almighty and all powerful. You keep the whole universe moving at Your direction. You created this world with its sun and moon and stars and You keep them all in place. It is all in Your hands. All these huge things under Your control, yet still You seek me out with Your awareness to dwell in me. You direct me along Your path to do Your will. It’s not because You force the issue. You offer it to me and I get to choose to follow You and Your will.


And I do so choose because I KNOW You love me. You sent Jesus with Jesus agreement of love to die for me a horrible death. Jesus You spilled Your blood so I could choose to live in righteousness, so I could choose to love You. Now I love You and trust You in all things to watch over my life as You watch over the universe with minute attention and detail.


                                     


Your eyes are always upon me. You allow me to grow up to trust and love You and Your love for me. I bow down to You and Your will. You are my God.



Isaiah 52:12 (Amp) For you will not go out with haste, nor will you go in flight [as was necessary when Israel left Egypt]; for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

So God moves ahead as a guide and acts as a rear guard to protect us from an attack behind us.


Isaiah 58:8 (Amplified Bible)

Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

Then also look at what He says about us~ because of our right relationship with God, bought by Jesus for us by His blood, it will go before us showing the way to peace and prosperity.

 

 

(Eph. 3:12, 14-16, 19 AMP) In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear)...

(14)For this reason [seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, (15) For Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name].

May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality]...

(19) [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!


What an awesome Scripture in Ephesians!! God wants us to be flooded with Himself! He desires that we experience His love, so that our whole being, our whole self is filled by the fullness of God. That is my desire too. What about you? Is it your desire to know God that completely? If not, why not? He is the God of the universe, and in His love for us, He is calling us to come and truly KNOW Him. Yes Lord, that is ny desire too!


Jesus offers us His joy which far exceeds human joy:

John 15:10-11 (Amplified Bible)

If you keep My commandments [if you continue to obey My instructions], you will abide in My love and live on in it, just as I have obeyed My Father's commandments and live on in His love.
11 I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing.


 John 17:13
And now I am coming to You; I say these things while I am still in the world, so that My joy may be made full and complete and perfect in them [that they may experience My delight fulfilled in them, that My enjoyment may be perfected in their own souls, that they may have My gladness within them, filling their hearts].


Thank You Jesus for Your great love for us. You desire for us to have Your joy!! Praise You and glorify You. Your love is amazing! You always have and always will want the best for me. I submit to You and Your love for me. Cover me O Jesus, my beautiful Savior!


Help me to follow You in all my ways; let Your ways be my ways always! Holy Spirit, empower me to do Your will; guide me down this road of life. Lift me above the traps and ditches that attempt to trap me; do not let detours lead me incorrectly. You be my perpetual guide.


Father God, it is amazing how You have planned all things, that You Are all. I AM that I AM. Enfold me Father in that AM that I AM. Enfold me in that space, that power, that love that is You. From the shining shimmering light of Jesus, to that space of the same light in You, fold me, let me just BE in it, rest in it.

                                                                                          


Cleanse me of every false thought in me, of every negative influence in me, of any curse of the enemy trying to deceive me. YOU are my God! You Who created the universe to the furtherest reaches the mind of man can conceive; You Who placed wonders for us to discover and enjoy; You are my God! You dwelling in me... What a concept; yet You do dwell in me, are a part of me, communicate with me. Oh mighty God! Thank You!

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.
