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.

You are wonderful my Lord! You who created the universe including our little world in it. I get the sense that this earth is Your special gem, that You built the universe then when all was ready, You set the earth in place among the planets and stars, and the other space creations. You set it perfectly forever, and with all it’s riches! And when it was time You created mankind to live on it.


You love us so much:

Jeremiah 31:3 (NKJV)  The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
“Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you. 


.........................................................


Ephesians 210 (NIV) For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

This is one of my fav Scriptures, because I know that not only was I created for a purpose, but God PREPARED IT IN ADVANCE FOR ME to do. It is a purpose that I am skilled to do, because He has prepared me for it and it for me.


Psalm 139:14 (NKJV)  I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
 Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. 


Genesis 1:27 (AMPC) So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.


Philippians 4:13 AMPC

 I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].


It also gives me strength with:

Philippians 4:6-7

Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.

7 And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.


My God, You are holy! Your love for us, Lord, is evident throughout Scripture. Now my Lord, I choose to learn humility, to humble myself before You. I know You love me, but perhaps I have gotten too familiar, thinking “You love me and I love You, so I take You for granted; that You are always with me protecting me”. But the truth is You are always with me protecting me, doing what is best for me. I kneel before You in thanksgiving and praise!


..............................


Holy Spirit, You are so special to me. You manifest Your personal Presence to me whenever I need You, I know You are there. I speak and You hear; I need and You answer. You teach me about Jesus reminding me of His Words. Thank You! Please help me to become who You have called me to be. I bow down to You submitting my spirit, soul, and body to You. Lead me as You wish, and I will follow. It may be hard, but with Your intention and Your help, I can do anything. It’s what Philippians 4 says:

Philippians 4:13 AMPC

 I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me  [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who infuses inner strength into me; I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].


My God, You are holy! You are love. Thank You for loving us all so well. Lord I ask You to instill in every heart that reads this blog,  a deeper understanding of Your incredible caring and tender love for each of us!
