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.

Easter Saturday

Posted on April 4, 2015 at 8:10 AM



Saturday morning before Easter; the sky is grey. The tomb is dark. What is behind the rock door? You Jesus went to hell to claim Your victory~ the keys of the Kingdom, keys of life and death.

Revelation 1:17

“Don’t fear: I am First, I am Last, I’m Alive. I died, but I came to life,

and my life is now forever. See these keys in my hand?

They open and lock Death’s doors, they open and lock Hell’s gates.


Jesus, it must have been during this time that You went to hell to claim your prize. Of course this is pure speculation, but on this day You were preparing to make Your emergence into the world as our Risen King! But Your friends and loved ones only knew You were gone from them, that behind the rock was a lifeless body where once the tender loving teacher use to live. The darkness of loss and abandonment was in their hearts. Mourning together in their grief they gathered to try and comfort each other.

Saturday for them was sadness.


Today we know this is a victory day, that Easter morning Jesus came out of the tomb fully alive in a resurrected body with holes still in the hands and feet where nails once were driven. We see the future, so to speak, knowing the past happenings. Jesus took our beating, our punishment for the sins in our life, so that we could live victorious lives on earth and walk into heaven when our days were done.

Jesus, You conquered death for us. Our spirits now live free from satan’s hatred; oh he still tries to tempt us from God’s way, but the closer we build our relationship with our God of love and goodness, the more difficult it is for evil to draw us away.


Everyone who accepts Jesus’ gift of salvation and invites Him to be Lord of their life will free themselves too. You can be free to live the life God designed for you, to be the person God created you to be.

Have you abandoned yourself to God yet? Have you chosen to be all you can be?
