As you pause to focus on Me I become more clear, My ways not as mysterious; your heart begins to understand Mine, there is a deeper spirit communication that transcends mere words. I want to be known not as a myth or fairy-tale but as the Living God – I Am. As you explore My word and seek my face I will become more real to you than your own breath; let Me breathe upon you, don’t be shy or afraid, in Me and My presence is what you have been longing for. Be still and know that I am who I say I am.
The scepter is extended, My throne room is open for you to come before Me as my beloved child. I will not reject or turn you away; I always have time for you.
Don’t be afraid to draw near to Me, I am not an angry God, a God of justice – yes, But I am also a God of love, mercy and grace. I have peace, I am peace. Come before me with boldness knowing that you come before a throne of grace and mercy; I will receive you, as a loving Father, into my presence.
What are you contemplating, what things are on your mind? Bring them to Me, let us reason together, I will share My thoughts with you, reveal some things you are unaware of so you can make the best informed decisions. I will share My plans and desires for you but ultimately the decision is yours with the free will to choose; choose wisely, I desire the best for you, the path of blessings not curses, I desire for you to prosper even as your soul prospers. I love you, my child; as a good Father I watch over you, with open arms I welcome you into where I am. Come, come let us sit together for a while and talk heart to heart.
See where I am – join Me. See where I am going – come with Me. See what I have – it’s for you. I have thought of you from the beginning of time, always desiring an intimate relationship with you. Come, let us journey together through life and one day into eternity.
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.
