ANOTHER DISCOVERY OF A WANDERING MIND

Posted on September 18, 2019 at 1:00 PM

                                                                           


This Scripture sent me on a new journey of discovery, and this time I invite you to join me. I ask Holy Spirit to help me learn more about Jesus, and He gives me these verses from Hebrews in The Passion Translation:


Hebrews 6:18-20 TPT

18 So it is impossible for God to lie for we know that his promise and his vow will never change! And now we have run into his heart to hide ourselves in his faithfulness. This is where we find his strength and comfort, for he empowers us to seize what has already been established ahead of time—an unshakeable hope!


19 We have this certain hope like a strong, unbreakable anchor holding our souls to God Himself. Our anchor of hope is fastened to the mercy seat [b] which sits in the heavenly realm beyond the sacred threshold,[c] 20 and where Jesus, our forerunner,[d] has gone in before us. He is now and forever our royal Priest like Melchizedek.[e] 

Footnotes

Hebrews 6:19 Implied in the text and made explicit as that which is found inside the innermost chamber. Hebrews 6:19 As translated from the Aramaic, which is literally “beyond the faces of the door.”

 Hebrews 6:20 Or “trailblazer.” Jesus has blazed a trail for us to enter into the sacred chamber and seize the hope that has been fulfilled in His eyes already, to have a company of king-priests who will dwell with Him in the holiest of holies and minister from there out to the nations of the earth. The clear implication of ~  we can depend on that and hide in His heart and His love whenever we need that strength and comfort.vv. 19–20    He takes us in to share his throne and his ministry as the royal Priest.

Hebrews 6:20 Or “in the order [likeness] of Melchizedek.”


                                         


“We have run into His heart to hide ourselves” in His faithfulness. How marvelous to know beyond doubt that our God is always faithful. And like the Scripture says, it’s where we find His strength and comfort! We are anchored to Him / held firmly to Him by Him. How secure it makes me feel. How about you?

 

He, Jesus, empowers us to seize what was already established ahead of time ~ an unshakeable hope.  The Word also says we are fastened to the mercy seat. If we do wrong and repent, God’s mercy forgives and forgets. This too, is part of our security, for we know our God will never reject us. His love for you and me is all powerful It keeps our souls superglued to Jesus as we travel our road to eternity. Holy Spirit works within us to hold us on the right road. 


 My friends, we are not wandering with no goal in sight. Oh no, Jesus is in the Holy of Holies waiting for us to join Him. Our unshakeable Hope is that we will be with Jesus as king-priests who will dwell with Him and minister from there out to the nations of the earth. It is our home and cannot be shaken, because Jesus already sees us there with Him.


                                                                           


As each of us journey down our path, we will grow and learn with Holy Spirit’s aid to become more like Jesus. Our experiences will teach us, and sitting under the tutelage of Holy Spirit and studying the Bible will build the character of God in our hearts. So we will one day find ourselves in the holiest of holies with Jesus and  being assigned our ‘priestly’ work for Him.


Can you see yourself being in His powerful Presence? His face looking at you with love? His smile is for you alone as He talks with you? Peace and quiet joy surround as you listen to His words. Feel your heart rest in contentment and excitement. 

                                                                                                                                                                               

  This Scripture takes me wandering down my own eternal highway. Did you like the journey?

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.
