Who Loves You Most?

Lord God, You are moving! You are setting the stage of Your end time play. It’s already begun. Things of prophecy from the Bible are happening. I pray, help me do well in the role You have cast me, Lord.


In the beginning of beginnings Father God Your love brought forth the world and children; You breathed Your life into them. Along the centuries, I entered Your plan. You chose to give humans a free will, knowing that they could choose to love You in return or reject You. Yes, You knew they would be imperfect and some in their ignorance and immaturity, like me, would sin against You, and would not be able to exist in Your Presence. You also knew Your enemy, satan, would try and win them into his camp of hate.


 

 

 

Then Lord, Your Son Jesus volunteered to redeem the lost souls by coming to earth donning a human nature and accepting the punishment for the sins of all mankind as our Savior Redeemer. He was cruelly tortured, humiliated and crucified in horrific pain to pay for my/our sins. Jesus loved us enough to do this, so we would be cleansed of our sins and able to build a relationship with Him and the Father while still here on earth; then we would also live in eternity with them. Jesus great love paid our sin debt and purchased the freedom of all who choose to accept His sacrificial gift.


 

 

I can never repay Him for His huge sacrifice, but I can follow His commands to show Him that I love Him and want to do His will. And I can share His love story with others so they too can experience His monumental love for themselves.


After Jesus’ death, He arose from the dead, finished His teachings with His disciples, and returned to His home in Heaven. But before leaving He promised to send “another” like Him who would be our teacher, counselor, comforter and more.

John 15:26-27 (AMP)

26 “But when the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, He will testify and bear witness about Me. 27 But you will testify also and be My witnesses, because you have been with Me from the beginning.


Jesus made sure we could always have help in performing our role. Now our part is to become acquainted with and build relationship with the Holy Spirit, our Guide, Teacher, Advocate, and all. He loves us with the same amazing love as the Father and Jesus, so a deep and intimate relationship can be built with Him. In conversation with Him I have learned many truths of life and of the Bible and how to apply them to my life. You can enjoy this too.

My friends, God created you for a purpose. Discovering this purpose will guide your path to confidence and joy. I encourage you, if you do not enjoy a closeness now, begin to construct a relationship with our Almighty God. Time is short and He is waiting for you!

(PS The book Cast Up A Highway presents a way of building this relationship.)

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.
