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.

BEHIND THE SCENES

Posted on June 23, 2019 at 4:35 AM

Thank You Lord for the things You do for us. Thank You for your wisdom and Your help in all the  blessings You  pour upon us every day. They add up to feelings of safety and security.

 

Trusting in God is such a calming state. God loves us so much and He’s always watching over us. God is working behind the scenes when we are unaware.

                                                


A friend shared a great story the other day. His shy son had one day called and said, “I’ve met her Dad, the woman I’m going to marry. Every morning I stop at Starbucks for coffee, and she always waits on me.“


“Really son? What’s her name“ ?

“Her name is Sue.”

“Do you have her phone number?”

“No Dad.”

“Are you going to ask her out?”

“Yes.”

Two weeks later shy Guy called again. Dad, she’s gone. She doesn’t work there anymore; and I never got her number.”



                                                                         

Now Guy had an older brother who worked in a hospital. His wife also worked there. A new lady had been hired, and they became acquainted. One day feeling sad for his brother who lost a potential great life partner, he invited the new acquaintance to double on a blind date with his brother and he and his wife, the four would go out together. A date was set.


When the time came for introducing the two on the blind date, they were shocked, because Guy’s blind date was Sue from Starbucks. It seems Sue had liked Guy also, and the other baristas would send Sue to wait on Guy when he came in.

 

Guy and Sue are now happily married! Can you see God’s hand in weaving this relationship together? Trusting God is such a right place to be. My own story told a few years ago had an intricate weaving of “coincidences” to bring my best friend, playmate, and husband and I together. With God's help our relationship will soon reach the 53rd year.


                                                                                    

                                              Our God is faithful! You can trust Him.
