Lessons Learned Through Depth Study

Posted on September 20, 2017 at 10:20 AM

My Lord You have been guiding me to discover Your purpose for my existence: to reach the unloved with Your love flowing thru me, Your Words speaking on the page and from my mouth. There are so many living in darkness these days! Let Your light shine through me. My heart's desire is to serve You.

I’ve discovered that as I go over these 4 blogs on going deeper with God again, they are even more meaningful. They showed me I need to refocus on God’s promises, His Word, again to continue my journey. I know it is a continuing saga until I go home to Him.

Do you feel this way too, my friends? WE go from glory to glory~ level to level. My heart is focused now on going deeper with my Lord. My current 'place' is feeling shallow. I want more! I must have a closer connection with my Lord, and that will require spending more time with Him I know! It is a choice.

Proverbs 2:1-5 (NIV)

1My son, if you accept my words

and store up my commands within you,

2 turning your ear to wisdom

and applying your heart to understanding—

3 indeed, if you call out for insight

and cry aloud for understanding,


4 and if you look for it as for silver

and search for it as for hidden treasure,

5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord

and find the knowledge of God.


In the Depth series I began to see the truth of this Scripture:

#1 When He calls it may seem impossible; but if He calls, we trust, and He will enable


#2 Name the treasure I seek. Is it the same as God’s will? When the journey seems too difficult, believe His Word; His promises are true! Sometimes the pressure can seem too much to bear, severe enough to even challenge my faith. Always go to His Word and His promises to be revitalized. He will guide me through any storm. He is my Strong Tower

Deuteronomy 31:8 (NIV)

The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”


#3 When I grow weary of the struggle, be determined to reach the goal; be committed to it. Be passionate about following God’s will! Know my own heart to find His heart. The enemy will try to bring fear and doubt threatening with its lies and deceptions ~remember God’s promises in His Word.

Psalm 19:11-14 (MSG)

There’s more: God’s Word warns us of danger

and directs us to hidden treasure.

Otherwise how will we find our way?

Or know when we play the fool?

Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!

Keep me from stupid sins,

from thinking I can take over your work;

Then I can start this day sun-washed,

scrubbed clean of the grime of sin.


Ps 55:16(MSG) As for me I will call upon the Lord and He will save me.

#4 Trust in the Holy Spirit to lead me along the path He set out for me. Continually seek Him.


These lessons are basic to living in God’s will and gaining wisdom to know the purpose He has for my life! Trust in Him is paramount! Having a purpose gives meaning to every day! Thank You Lord!!

Do you know the purpose for which God gave you life? If not, Go to Him! He brings strength and joy!

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.
