Transformation

Posted on March 24, 2017 at 6:30 AM


Hello my beautiful Lord, God of all creation! I know You are beautiful because creation came from You, and it is lovely! You are most amazing! I can bow before You in worship and You invite me to sit and rest in Your presence. In the resting, I am filled and fulfilled! You are so good! Thank You!!


I’m picturing the rhinoceros I saw on tv the other night. He was big and lumbering with a huge tusk on His nose. Despite His ‘ugliness' he was quite a regal creature with brute strength and a rather nasty disposition. But what is nastier still are the men who kill him for the greed of his tusk. He is Your critter Lord, and you put good in him. So what happened to the good in men? Men were corrupted by satan at the beginning of beginnings, his blood tainted with evil.


But You, Lord, in Your goodness sent Your Son Jesus to redeem mankind; so now we can choose a whole new transformation which erases the evil stain in our nature. We take on God’s DNA, His nature of goodness and love. When we accept Jesus' sacrifice for us, we can also receive the Holy Spirit to live in us. Remember God is One and so Holy Spirit, being One in the Trinity, is God Himself. Our Triune God is not easy to understand with our finite minds, but He is an incredibly awesome God! And you know what’s really magnificent? Our God loves us so much! He desires with all His heart to have a close relationship with us, a one on one, heart to heart relationship.

Can we have an intimate relationship with God? The answer is “Yes”. When one has God living within, having conversations with us, leading us, comforting us, being our mentor, yes, a very close connectedness can be established. Love can grow. He already loves us, and as we come to know Him more and more, we will love Him too. So a beautiful relationship grows. The wonder of it must be experienced to believe how marvelous it is.


If you would like to build this lovely bond with our astonishing Lord God, You can. He desires this bond more than we do, as He loves us dearly already. Ask God to help you. Then repent of your sins, and thank Jesus for taking your punishment for them; ask Him to be the Lord of Your life, and you will have begun the most important journey of your entire existence

You will no longer be that thick-skinned, nasty tempered, critter with its head born down by a huge tusk of greed. This rhino personality will be transformed into one of God’s more lovely creatures. . . a doe, a lion, a giraffe, an eagle. God loves all His creation, but none more than us. Submit to God, Creator of the universe and all it’s majesty, of the earth and all its magnificence.

See how grand is life spent with One who treasures you as a beloved son or daughter!

The book Cast Up A Highway can be a guide in creating your own personal highway.

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.
