Seek Him!

Posted on July 15, 2016 at 8:10 AM


You know, God tells us "if we seek Him, we will find Him”. And that is so true. As a child, my mother taught me about God and reverencing Him. She taught by example and by words. As an adult, I found that since I set out to truly know God, He has been teaching me. First it was about Father God, and we developed a close relationship. He was the One I “knew” as a child. But when i became an adult, a deeper relationship was established. Then He began teaching me about His Son Jesus, and a close bond was created there as well. Such a joy!

But only recently, He introduced me to the Third Person of the Trinity, Holy Spirit. When I discovered that He loves me dearly also, the relationship blossomed! It is so enriching to have an intimacy with the full Godhead. Does that sound crazy? You might want to try it! :))

Colossians 2:10 (AMPC)

And you are in Him, made full and having come to fullness of life

[in Christ you too are filled with the Godhead—

Father, Son and Holy Spirit—

and reach full spiritual stature].

And He is the Head of all rule and authority

[of every angelic principality and power].


God's Word is a profound teacher about life and living it fully. The last Book of the Bible, Revelation, reveals the ending of the story of life. It teaches that those who choose to follow God and Jesus will be victors. Those who disdained God and rejected Jesus and his gift will end up following their leader, satan, into the lake of fire. They will suffer the eternal punishment of separation from God and living under the devil’s hatred in pain and suffering forever.

Some say, “Oh God is good He would never send people to hell forever. That punishment is too harsh.” But if people have continued to disobey and refuse God’s chances of salvation, they will have no excuse at the mercy seat and will fall under God’s wrath on judgement day. There will be no more chances. They will have condemned themselves to everlasting punishment. His perfect justice will prevail.


My friends, time has speeded up and we do not have forever to choose Jesus. Please come and join those whose names are in the Lamb’s Book of Life. They have chosen to make Jesus the Lord of their lives. They have repented of their sin and accepted Jesus' gift of salvation on the cross. Be one of these dear ones, I plead with you. If you have already done so, great. But if not, do it today and you will spend eternity with God. And He has a great plan for you in this life and in the next. Do not wait, for none of us know our time of death.

John 3:16 (AMPC)

For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world

that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son,

so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on)

Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost)

but have eternal (everlasting) life.

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.
