Do you find it hard to focus sometimes? This morning was a real effort, but I was determined to do it!
Father help me focus on You. Put the settings so I see You clearly and hear you well. There seems to be so much filling my mind, but I’ve a determination to rid the exterior world from my thoughts and see just You, peer thru the clutter pushing it aside as I make my way toward You this morning. And when I arrive, it’s in the throne room. Yea!! There is my God, and how I do need Him!
Inside me is a God-shaped hole. If He is not fitted in that hole, than much of me leaks out. But when I seek Him and worship Him and follow Him as my Lord and King of Kings, when I am obedient to Him and He is number one in my life, then He is filling that hole with Himself and He and I are joined; Jesus said
John 15:4 Dwell in Me,
and I will dwell in you.
[Live in Me, and I will live in you.]. . .
22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one:
23 I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united. . .
John 17:21-23 (MSG)
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. . .So they’ll be as unified and together as we are—I in them and You in me.
Jesus You and the Father are one. Holy Spirit lives in me, so the Godhead lives in me. You God fill that God-shaped vacancy in me. When You fill it, I am complete. And You are adding me, in that You created me to be a part of You, an extension of who You are, a deepening expansion of Your nature, Your love, a wider fulfillment of that love. You are our Father Who breathed life into all of us. Jesus said:
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 God, You love me as You love Jesus. Wow!! I'm in awe at Your goodness! I sit humbly at Your feet asking the Holy Spirit to help me explore this mystery deeper, and glean new understanding from it. It's no wonder I feel so incomplete without You, and no wonder life just doesn’t jibe unless We are in sync.
Having Holy Spirit, and thus Jesus and You Father indwell me is such an honor and a privilege. I am feeling cherished by You.
How does it make you feel to know God loves you in the same way He loves Jesus?
