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.

Have you ever been really hungry? I mean like your stomach hurts? Your only thought is "FOOD! WHERE IS FOOD!!" That's been an image of, "I must have more,"  my spiritual hunger lately. It's like I need to go deeper into God. And so  what does that mean? My God connection is good, but sometimes life gets so demanding that my focused  time with the Lord gets cut short, and my spiritual tank gets depleted or empty. Just like my car doesn't run well or at all on an empty tank, neither do I.


                                                                          


It is then necessary for me to go get a fill up. Purposefully I begin to schedule my time with my  Lord each morning. It's an appointment I must keep, and I do. When I meet with Him I find He is right there waiting for me. I begin by praising Him, this most awesome God ~ the mighty Creator who loves us all so much! There is so much joy in this world He made for us~ flowers of many colors and scents; just today I smiled at the yellow and white columbine outside my window. Earlier this year the lovely smell of lilacs flowed through my open door. How about the skies showing off His majesty in vibrant reds, oranges, yellows at dawn and sunset. Or the double rainbow that created a colorful arc over the  eastern horizon. Observe the marvelous animals in all shapes and dressed in colorful patterns. Our God cannot be described in words; He is too magnificent!


                                                


Sometimes after praise and worship, I just sit and commune with Him in the atmosphere of His love. Then I bring up questions I have for Him and ask Him to show me Scriptures, or occasionally He will answer me in His quiet voice. This time spent with my God fills me and empowers me to live the day in His way. After years of meeting with Him almost every morning our connection is strong and I know my Lord and His character. 


                                    


My friends, this is my way of staying connected. I encourage you to set up an appointment with God each day and faithfully keep it. The relationship that develops will become a joy and a staunch support for you!
