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.

LET THE WINDS BLOW

Posted on May 17, 2019 at 3:40 AM

             

                                                                                    

Doesn’t it feel splendid to be inside on a cold windy night? Listen to the wind howl around like a hungry frustrated nocturnal creature! As a child it became a monster in the darkness. Windows rattled, wind borne objects crashed down as bumps in the night. Trees bent low, sometimes branches loudly crack off to become morning obstructions in the road.



                                                                                                                                                    


Yet here I cuddle comfortably in my blanket absorbed in my book, not totally oblivious to the maelstrom outside, but thankful for the warmth and shelter of my sanctuary. i heard a song the other day by Scott Krippayne; ”Sometimes He holds us close, lets the wind and waves go wild, “Sometimes He calms the storm; other times He calms His child.” I love it! God is my strong tower in the. storms of life.


                                                   


 Have you noticed how swiftly the months are blowing off the calendar ~ sorta like the winds are grabbing each page and ripping away the time. I actually am recalling a number of years past when we moved my Dad from Alabama to Denver. His Parkinson’s Disease had worsened. Being so far away became a dichotomy. On one hand the distance isolated me from the every day pain of watching him deteriorate; on the other hand, I worried about him. So the ‘insulation’ needed to be pulled off, other issues be faced, and true feelings exposed. We all had to deal with the loss. Seeing my Daddy as a healthy and strong rock to lean on, then having to face the results of the disease. . . was difficult.

 

Yet now as the years rush by, awareness opens my eyes to the reality that i can no longer qualify for the Olympics (LOL) The years are hurrying by, and as another wrinkle is noticed, energy is not the same. But there are still challenges I meet with strength and wisdom, and places where I can make a difference. So my eyes look up to enjoy the sunrises, the stars at night and all the beauty each day brings, and my mouth declares, “Let the wind blow”’.


I actually enjoy being out on a windy day, letting it rush through my hair feeling the power of God therein. It blasts the cobwebs out of my mind and leaves a freshness! I shout out “Remember where my strength comes from!”, and “Fear not, for there is nothing to fear!”. I like to lecture myself. Do you do that too?


                                                                


My dear friends, as this day beckons me forth to a new task,  may your spirit dance like leaves in the wind!  I wish you Joy and Blessings!
