I’m comfortable in the throne room, welcomed by my God and King. Sometimes I just go in to rest and enjoy some peace. Other times I go to make a request of Daddy God. This morning I go seeking His guidance for the day.
How do I come?
Like a 2 year old walking up to Big Daddy in His office as he is doing business, I’m oblivious of his importance and aura of grandness that surrounds him. Through this glamor Daddy looks down and smiles. His beloved child is worth more than any business deal. At these times I feel deeply loved.
Or do I enter the throne room as an older child in awestruck wonder at the glory; yet Daddy God’s love seeps through all that glory right into my heart and the love connection lifts me up in heart to heart, one on one relationship with Him. Such a joy filled connection this is!
Or do I come as an adult having lived many years upon this earth seeking a deeper bond with my Daddy God? Releasing my desires, my ego, and giving You my life Lord, I stand before You this morning seeking a new depth in Your heart; I need to be deeply submerged in You. I don’t know what I don’t know, but somehow I do know there are deeper reaches in You, and I desire them. I choose to be a seeker after You. As a hound dog hunts its quarry relentless in its pursuit, so shall I be O Lord, seeking after You. Relentless.
The hound dog has a scent to follow, what have I? In Your Word I find clues; there is a scent running throughout for me to follow. The sweet perfume of Your love fills the Words. Lead the hunt my indwelling Holy Spirit, for You know where the trail is that leads into the very heart of the Father. As the hound runs through the bushes and trees with nose to the ground, help my eyes to roam through the words with understanding and wisdom, Holy One!
As the Seeker hound I give my mind to Holy Spirit to follow Him; I learn:
The Lord wants all of us to repent and be saved.
But the heaven we see now and the earth we live on now
have been kept by His word.
8 Dear friends, remember this one thing,
with the Lord one day is as 1,000 years, and 1,000 years are as one day.
9 The Lord is not slow about keeping His promise as some people think.
He is waiting for you.
The Lord does not want any person to be punished forever.
He wants all people to be sorry for their sins and turn from them.
Run through the trees and smell the scent~
Matt 3: 8
Bring forth fruit that is consistent with repentance
[let your lives prove your change of heart];
9 And do not presume to say to yourselves,
We have Abraham for our forefather; . . .
10 And already the ax is lying at the root of the trees;
every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit
is cut down and thrown into the fire.
So I learn we are called to bear good fruit. How do we do that?
I am the Vine; you are the branches.
Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit.
However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me]
you can do nothing.
How sweet is His Word! You want an eye to eye encounter with me, my God, a heart-to-heart bonding. A touching, a melding of thoughts and desires, joining as a branch connected to a vine with the sap of life flowing from the vine into the branch. Yes, that is my desire too. Thank You Holy Spirit for honing my sensitivities to the sweet breath of my King, and leading me to truth.
Listen to what the Word teaches! Do you want to be a seeker too, seeking after the heart of our mighty God?
2 Peter 3:18 Grow in the loving-favor that Christ gives you. Learn to know our Lord Jesus Christ better. He is the One Who saves. May He have all the shining-greatness now and forever. Let it be so.
