Be like a  little child

When we pray, our first priority is not to move mountains or to cast out the devil, our first priority is to grow closer to God and step deeper into His Glory. When stepping deeper into His glory, we need to see ourselves righteous and washed in the precious Blood of Jesus.

 

PRAY: Jesus, I want to step deeper into Your glory. You have made me righteous and You have cleansed me of sin. Therefore I can come into Your glory. The Word says You Father raised me, personally, up together with Jesus and gave me joint seating with Jesus in the heavenly sphere. So that means I can see from Your perspective through Jesus eyes. I can see what’s happening on the earth and see with, yes, Your perspective.

 

My eyes see, my ears hear Your heart. Help me act as Jesus in every situation. I plead for grace to do what Jesus would do. There is no place I would rather be than here in Your Presence. If it is possible, let me live every moment in Your Presence. Jesus, the apostles lived in Your very Presence as You walked the earth. Now I can walk in Your very Presence with Holy Spirit indwelling me.


                                


 Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! Your name is mighty and powerful and all must bow before Your name! Jesus You walked the earth as a man just so we could come to know the Father and His love for us. And You came to take on our sin debt so our life on earth is just the beginning of our heavenly life with You.

 

I want to know You Jesus in a deeper way, to know how to live and express Your Spirit within me. Jesus Your love for us is something hard to comprehend, because what You did for us is die a horrible death so we could live. You love us individually  so much You were willing to go through excruciating pain for us. Why? because You love us.

 

Jesus, if we stand face to face now today, what would You say to us? What would I say to You? What is truth here? I think I  would shrivel up to nothing, shrink down to a puddle. I feel so insignificant. Yet You were willing to die for us. We repent.

Jesus, You say to us to not get drowned in Your crucifixion pain. Move past the pain into mission. That is, ‘show our love for YOU through obedience.’

 

                                                          



Father, help us here. Give us Your grace to do as You command. We bow before Jesus, King of kings! Interesting, I am seeing in me the old drive to go to the top person when something needs doing. And my God I see Father as top person. I am messed up here Lord. You are God, three in one. You are equal each as powerful, each all knowing, one in the same God! Father You instructed me to get to know Your Son Jesus. Holy Spirit of Jesus, teach me, immerse me in His love, that I may be obedient to my Father. Jesus, You are the key to many things I need to understand. From early on You said make wise choices:


Deuteronomy 30:19-20 (New Living Translation)  “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life. And if you love and obey the Lord, you will live long in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”

 

In making those choices, we are rewarded~

 Proverbs 4:12-13 (New Living Translation)

When you walk, you won’t be held back; when you run, you won’t stumble. Take hold of my instructions; don’t let them go. Guard them, for they are the key to life.

 

God is in control. Follow His instructions! He is our reward!

 

Revalation 3:10 “Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world. 11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown.

Revelation 3:10 “Because you kept my Word in passionate patience, I’ll keep you safe in the time of testing that will be here soon, and all over the earth, every man, woman, and child put to the test.


                               

  Lord God, You are the ruler of the universe. You know us and love us and will take care of us. We trust You and follow Your commands!

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.
