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.

THE BRIDE

Posted on November 15, 2019 at 3:20 AM


   

 

Jeremiah 33:11: The voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the voice of them that shall say, Praise the LORD of hosts: for the LORD is good; for his mercy endureth forever: and of them that shall bring the sacrifice of praise into the house of the LORD. For I will cause to return the captivity of the land, as at the first, saith the LORD.

  

Can the bride think of anything but her groom? Yet you think of many things that do not include Me, saith the Lord.

Where are My devoted ones, My set-apart ones who hunger for My presence? (I felt deep sadness and grief)  Where are those who long after and watch for My return?


Where is the worship due My holy name? Where are My worshipers? Why do they sing songs of praise to the world and not to Me? (terrible grief in His voice)

 

Why, after all I do for you, do you chase after other gods, other lovers? Why is it you will bow to the opinions and desires of those around you and not bow before Me?

 


Am I not worthy of your praise? Your worship? Your devotion? Is there not honor due My holy name?

You see the dirty, stained condition of My bride. She is stained with the filth of the world around her. I desire for My bride to come aside with Me, but she tarries in the world instead. (I sensed the Lord had some anger at the bride's unfaithfulness) 

My bride is indifferent to Me.


 

In soon times to come, she shall realize the gravity of the err of her ways. She will seek Me and cry out for Me in her distress - then she will let Me wash her clean in the water of My Holy Word.

         

                                                


Only then will she truly see her great need of Me. For now she is content with her lover the world, but then she shall long for Me, she shall long for My presence. She will long to feel the security of My love and she will truly seek Me then.


How I long for you, My bride! How I long to hold you near Me, safe from all that is coming, but you would not. 

Those who seek Me early shall find Me. Those who wait shall know great distress, for many shall perish in a short amount of time.

 

When there is nothing left for her to cling to but My word, then will she enter in with Me. My bride abides in the world, not in Me, where I desire she would be found. In Me she will find safety. In Me she will find all her needs met in My endless supply. In Me she can take refuge, but her eyes are on another, on the world, and she is polluted with gazing at evil and corruption.


                                                                


(I thought of how gazing at worldly television programs and movies and news reports does this to us - it fills our minds with murder and corruption and keeps our mind off of Him and His word)

 

 

Come out of the world, My beloved. Run to Me and be safe in My arms! Run to Me where I can protect you from what is coming.


                                                           


My bride must ready herself for My return. She must wash herself clean in My Holy Word. She must turn away from the ways of this world and cling to Me.


BRIDE OF CHRIST 

The church is the Bride of Christ. We are the Church. We are the Bride of Christ. What knid of bride are we? God looks at us in expectation of His beautiful pure bride. Do I /you fit what He wants to see? Am I seeking after Jesus? Am I studying His Word? Do I want to grow closer  and deeper inrelationship with my God? Will I sacrifice TV to spend time with the One who loves me most?
