I was going to post something different today but was impressed to share the following.
Someone is listening (reading) and needs to hear how loved they are. The world has beaten you down and hope is fading. You need to know that God is the God of hope who you can turn to, call out to, and share the deepest hurts, anguish, and feelings with, don’t hold them in; it is like a ticking time bomb, a pressure cooker, waiting to explode. As you release it to Him the pressure, the weights, you carry will also be released. He (God) is not the cause but He is the help.
There was a scripture John 4:26 “Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”
This refers to John 4:25, where Jesus is having a conversation with the Samaritan woman at the well – “The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”
To add my own comment, the Lord knows who you are, right where you are and the circumstances. He loves you unconditionally and is reaching out to you, do not be afraid or ashamed of anything, take Him up on his offer.
Do not be so hard on yourself that you push Me away. Know that I love you, accept my forgiveness, come receive of My mercy and grace. Come closer, do not stand afar off, come – come near and receive My love, feel the warmth of My presence and know that I am for you; come, come even closer.
Come My child, come closer, let Me hold you and comfort your distressed heart. My peace I give to you, don’t let circumstances rattle you, I have promised to always be with you in the good and difficult times. There is nothing you can’t handle when you are holding My hand.
Obedience is what I desire above sacrifices. I desire willing vessels ready at a moment’s notice to by My instrument, to speak My words, to take an action; ready minutemen. For individuals to be watchmen on the wall looking for what I am doing, ready to relay the information to those waiting and wanting to know, the ones who will take action.
Those who are apathetic, spiritually asleep, who have closed their eyes or looked away will miss out on My greatest move. Awaken O’ slumbering ones, awaken, arouse from your slumber, wipe the sleep from your eyes and clean out your ears, it is a time for vigilance, a time of preparation.
When we think about February, Valentine’s Day comes to mind. The matters of the heart; love, sharing love, expressing and experiencing love, all the warm fuzzy feelings that come with new love; the depth of care, concern, devotion and life bonds that come with a seasoned or mature love.
We see around us all the cute little cut out hearts with their simple perfect shapes, all nice and clean that come in various sizes and shades of pink or red. But, if we look at the real heart, it is rather complicated, consisting of various chambers, blood vessels, arteries and valves; an organ that is anything but simple. One that beats strong, sending life-giving blood flowing through the body; a heart that leaps for joy at the sound of good news, yet feels it will break under the weight of emotional hurts. A heart that is tender and compassionate or hardened, one that can be full of good or filled with deceit, it can burn with loves passion or grow cold. The heart of man (or woman) is a fickle thing and a mess outside its’ proper environment.
The proper heart environment for humans is in fellowship with the God of love. I am so thankful for the loving heart of God that he has towards His children. He loves us with an everlasting love, with the love of a good Father’s heart, from a heart of compassion and a desire for our well-being. His love for us cannot be bought or earned. He loves us because He is love and we are His children. A love such as His may be difficult to understand as our only comparison is that of other people, some with good intentions but who miss the mark, while others use such statements as “I love you” to manipulate you for their own gain. The Lord does not say “I love you” to get us to do something for Him. His love is pure and undefiled. His only desire is what is best for us; His love is not selfish, it is a sacrificial love. His love will stand up to the test of time; it will not fade or be withdrawn. His love is an everlasting love, one that He desires to make known to us, to all who will receive it.
As you begin your day turn your attention and focus on Me, invite Me into your world, your activities. Keep Me in mind as you go, tune an ear to the sound of My voice that I may give you wisdom and guidance. At the end of the day come back and spend time with Me, let’s talk the day over and have a heart to heart time.
Need a breakthrough? You’ve come to the right place, snares are broken in My presence and darkness has to flee when I am released into the room. I am a chain breaker, heart mender, relationship restoring, death defying God who loves you and wants to see you free. Let’s do this together shall we!
Now is the time, today is the day, why wait to seek Me. Seek Me while I may be found, the invitation is open. You want the more of Me – ask; you want the breakthrough – I have the answer. What desire is on your heart – none is too great or too small to bring before me. I care about you and what’s on your heart.
There is a love so grand, a love so deep that it is not comprehensible, that is My love for you. I have sworn an oath and made a covenant signed in My Son’s blood. Those who enter into the covenant have all My benefits available to them. I do not break My covenant with you, it stands for eternity. Wonder what it is? It’s concealed to those who do not know Me, but will be revealed to you as you search it out. Come and seek, search and find; I desire for you to know more of the One you are in relationship with so that you do not miss out on anything available to you.
The doors are open come on in. I am always happy to see you, sit with Me for a while, lay down your cares, set the busyness aside and just be with Me. Remember the day we first met and you invited Me in – I do; it was a special day and heaven rejoiced. It has been an adventure since that first day and we’re only getting started. Take My hand and let’s continue on, more awaits.
