FEAR OF THE LORD PART 2

Posted on July 19, 2019 at 5:25 AM

Oh Jesus for all the miracles You accomplished on earth, none even touches on Your greatness and power, Your authority over anything in this world, Your grace that flows to us as a gift of Your power. It was released at the cross and is the answer to every need we will ever have. It’s there waiting for our faith to access it. Jesus You are the answer to all our needs. My God, I bow down with my face to the ground. I am totally unworthy to be in Your Presence.


                                      


Reverence = respect, honor, awe = respect mixed with wonder

 

Lord, Lord! Can I have this intimate relationship with You and also have reverential awe of You? Holy Spirit, please teach me the answer here


                                                 


I sit and reflect on the awesomeness of the mountains, the sound of the rushing waters, standing at the base of Wolf Creek Falls entranced by its raw power. Moving in a mighty storm wind I glory in the forceful breath of God, stagger at the lightening, and feel the booming crash of the thunder reverberate through my body, tremble at a forest fire!  He is indeed mighty!


                                                  


My spirit, soul and body make up me. The soul is the mind, will, and emotions. The body brings information to the soul, and the soul transmits it to the spirit. Intimacy involves love. God is love. With which part of our being do we experience true love? The heart is what God looks at.


Matthew 5:8 (AMPC)

Blessed (happy, enviably fortunate, and spiritually prosperous—possessing the happiness produced by the experience of God’s favor and especially conditioned by the revelation of His grace, regardless of their outward conditions) are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!

 

The Message

“You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.

I believe this Scripture gives a clue as to why some people cannot believe in God. The heart and the mind must be open to choose God. 

One must also know love.

 

Matthew 5:22

 

But I say to you that everyone who continues to be angry with his brother or harbors malice (enmity of heart) against him shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed

 

 


Looks like the heart involves feelings which is in the soulish realm. Yet since God is love, love is also a spiritual element. So it seems Love is bigger than just one element. Love is huge and encompasses everything surrounding God.


So I can have an intimate close relationship with You, my Lord, knowing and feeling Your love, sharing love with You, feeling Your love for me and in me. And Your love expands the universe including the universe of my inner spirit. So to answer my question, “Yes, I can share an intimate close, a togetherness, with You and also experience reverential awe for You.” The closer I am to You, the greater You become, and the more I understand about Your grandeur and Your glory!.


                                   


We are special to You, I know. You love the uniqueness You put in my creation; however, I also know You love all Your children uniquely, and we can each share a loving intimate relationship with You while holding You in reverential awe.

                                                             

 One brings together, the other separates. Only an Almighty God can put those two together successfully.

What do you think? Have you ever thought about these things?

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.
