TIME TO SEEK HIS HEART

Posted on May 18, 2020 at 5:45 AM


                               


Jesus, mighty Creator, God of all. Before You I choose to bow down, for You are so high! There's none like You! Majestic! Light of lights. Love personified, like none other. For You always were; You are the Alpha and the Omega! Mighty, enormous, immense, beyond my scope. Still,  being with You is like total peace in boundless love.


 Good morning Lord! I am so delighted to be with You! My heart desires noting more than to spend time with You! You love us so much! You created a book (The Bible) to teach us about Yourself, and You even sent Your Son, Jesus, to suffer our due penalty, thus ransoming us, freeing us from satan's chains. He binds us no more. Jesus bought our freedom. Now we have the ability to choose Jesus as our gift of freedom and ask Him to be Lord of  our life, King of our Heart. He will raise us up to understand how kind and loving is our God. He is not some entity sitting above the clouds with a baseball bat ready to punish us for wrong decisions. Rather He gives us grace to make good choices; He helps guide us and leads us in the right direction.

 

Isaiah 43:16 The Passion Translation


[God Will Do a New Thing ] Yahweh is the one who makes a way in the sea, a pathway in the mighty waters.

 

Have you ever been in love? Do you know how it feels to be in love? You want to be with that person all the time! God loves each of us like that. His love is deep and pure. Think how He could feel when His beloved rejects Him, chooses another god to worship, ignores Him? We are God's beloved! 


Well I have to look at this Coronavirus; God did not make it, but He did not prevent it either. Now many find themselves quarantined in their own homes, no sports, no entertainment, no jobs. Things that we chose to come before God are no longer available to us.  Hmmm?


Micah 7:1-6 The Message


[ Stick Around to See What God Will Do ] I’m overwhelmed with sorrow! sunk in a swamp of despair! I’m like someone who goes to the garden to pick cabbages and carrots and corn And returns empty-handed, finds nothing for soup or sandwich or salad. There’s not a decent person in sight. Right-living humans are extinct. They’re all out for one another’s blood, animals preying on each other. They’ve all become experts in evil. Corrupt leaders demand bribes.

 

The powerful rich make sure they get what they want. The best and brightest are thistles. The top of the line is crabgrass. But no longer: It’s exam time. Look at them slinking away in disgrace! Don’t trust your neighbor, don’t confide in your friend. Watch your words, even with your spouse. Neighborhoods and families are falling to pieces. The closer they are—sons, daughters, in-laws— The worse they can be. Your own family is the enemy.


It is causing some to begin to understand what is really critical in life. Having a close relationship with a God who loves us and is all seeing and all powerful can be a comfort in these puzzling times. Loving our family and putting them before work and enertainment may deserve a second look. Examining our own treatment of others can be eye opening in truth.


                                                        


You can tell Micah knew God; just look at His perspective:

 Micah 7:7 The Message


But me, I’m not giving up. I’m sticking around to see what God will do. I’m waiting for God to make things right. I’m counting on God to listen to me.


Others in the Bible also knew God and had communication with Him:

 Acts 27:23-26

The Message
“Last night God’s angel stood at my side, an angel of this God I serve, saying to me, ‘Don’t give up, Paul. You’re going to stand before Caesar yet—and everyone sailing with you is also going to make it.’ So, dear friends, take heart. I believe God will do exactly what he told me. But we’re going to shipwreck on some island or other.”



                                     


God's answers may not always be exactly what we want, but knowing God loves us and wants the best for us, allows us to trust that His answers are for our good. We sometimes find ourselves in a boat on a stormy sea, knowing God, we do not panic, but ask God (who is constantly with us) for His aid; and the Word shoiws us how to act ~


Romans 5:3-5 (The Message)                                                                                                                                  
There’s more to come: We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us,

and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next.

In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling shortchanged. Quite the contrary—we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit!


Whoops. we have not spoken of the Third Person of the Holy Trinity yet. We will do that soon. Meanwhile, remember that the God, Creator of the Universe, wants to establish a relationship with us! Let us all use this perfect opportunity and perhaps this God-set TIME for it! 


Here is Jeremiah with God's Word:

Jeremiah 31:10-13 

“Hear the word of the Lord, you nations;
 proclaim it in distant coastlands:
‘He who scattered Israel will gather them
    and will watch over his flock like a shepherd.’
 11 For the Lord will deliver Jacob
  and redeem them from the hand of those stronger than they.
 12 They will come and shout for joy on the heights of Zion;
    they will rejoice in the bounty of the Lord—
the grain, the new wine and the olive oil,
    the young of the flocks and herds.


They will be like a well-watered garden,
  and they will sorrow no more. 
13 Then young women will dance and be glad,
  young men and old as well.
 I will turn their mourning into gladness;
  I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.


                                                                           

Zephaniah 3:17 NIV 

The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love He will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.”

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.
