His Personal Gift to Me

Posted on December 23, 2015 at 6:30 AM

Luke 1:76-78 (AMP)

[to John]“And you, child, will be called a prophet of the Most High;

For you will go on before the Lord (the Messiah) to prepare His ways;

77 To give His people the knowledge of salvation

By the forgiveness of their sins,

78 Because of the tender mercy of our God,

With which the Sunrise (the Messiah) from on high

will dawn and visit us,


During this season celebrating Jesus entry into the human race, He brings to my mind stories of special gifts He has brought into my life. . .

You have reminded me, Jesus, of when my father died. I was concerned about his salvation and had been praying and speaking to him. On his death bed, it seemed he would breathe his last breath then come back. This continued for a while until finally he left to go to heaven. How do I know positively he is in heaven with Jesus?

I asked God why it took him so long to finally die. Jesus asked me, “when was the last time your Dad bowed down to anyone?” I got it; my Dad was a proud man and God gave him time before death to bow down to Him.


Then Jesus gave me a picture~ it was of my father dressed in a white robe kneeling on one knee before King Jesus, (also in a white robe) like a knight bowing before the kings of old. My Dad bowed his heart down to the King of kings and is now knighted to the wonders of a beautiful eternity.


An aside: the night before, my daughter was in a place in another wing where she could see through his window, and she saw an angel in the room with Dad. I believe it was a special angel there to protect him, so he would not die until he had bowed down to Jesus. Thank You Jesus! You do indeed answer prayers!


Jesus, Your gift of salvation through your willingness to go through torturous death to redeem me, us, is the greatest gift that could ever exist! I accept Your sacrificial gift with deep thanksgiving! I will one day join You and my parents in eternity! Thank You Jesus!

Have you accepted Jesus gift of salvation to you?

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.
