I’m calling you closer, closer to My heart. Come in abandonment before Me with no agenda and just let Me love you. Come hear My heart and the song I sing over you. Come closer, closer to My heart and know My great love for you, know my intents and plans, and let your heart be satisfied. Come closer, closer to My heart, My love.
How often do we rush right into our day, or projects, never giving the Lord a second thought or asking Him what He thinks about what we are planning to do; after all – we planned it so well? Do we ever feel that nudging nagging feeling inside – not knowing what it’s about; or have a fleeting thought that perhaps we should do something different but don’t want to entertain a change to our plans; and then trivialize or dismiss the feelings – only later to have regrets at not paying attention to the inner voice?
What if we were given the following challenge, would we accept it?
“Seek Me first in all you do; bring each task of your day before Me. Invite Me to give you fresh insights, to show you the best way to go about it, to move on your behalf, to give you favor before others. As you involve Me, be open to change your plans for I know better ways; sometimes it may mean abandoning your plan altogether when I know it will not be for your good. Learn to trust Me, that I have your best interest at heart, and know the will of the Father for your life. What may appear good, innocent, and acceptable, might just cause you to pull away from Me or get you so involved in other activities that you are not free, or able, to do those things that have far greater value and lasting eternal impact. Know that I see the big picture, not simply this moment in time. There are many things that captivate your heart and delight your senses, yet not all will truly satisfy; I know the differences and desire to guide you down the path to the ones that will deeply satisfy you. Nothing is too trivial to involve Me in, or too complicated for me to understand. Why not give it a try for 30 days, involve Me in everything, I’m certain you will be amazed.”
Seek Me and I will reveal myself to you. It is not the collective wisdom of the masses who determine who I am. I am who I am, and the Holy Spirit reveals who I am. What Holy Spirit reveals and sheds light upon is found in My word, the Bible: He (Holy Spirit) illuminates Me in it giving clarity and insight into the meaning of what is written. Think you know Me? Wait and see who I reveal myself to be as you seek Me with all your heart.
You are My heart’s desire, a treasure, one of great price which I willingly paid. Take my hand, let me show you the desire of my heart – do you see your reflection? All I have done – I have done for you, all with you on my mind. I extend my hand to you, a hand of love, of friendship, help, support, guidance and so much more. Take my hand; let me draw you in closer to Me, closer to my heart. Do you feel its beat, it beats for you, it beats with the tune of an intimate love song. Come let me lavish my love upon you and wrap you in My glory. Let me drape you in love and kindness, grace and mercy. Let me fill you with peace and joy unspeakable. Let me put my mark upon you that all the world will know you are mine, that you are My beloved.
My Child, I hear your voice filled with praise. Come closer, let me look upon you, you are the delight of My heart. I enjoy these times together when you are not rushing off into your day, but take time to talk with Me. Pause now and hear My voice, I love you, I desired and planned for you from the very beginning. I have special plans for you, you are my special child, unique in your ways, you are one of a kind. You touch and impact lives in ways others cannot. The world, your family, your church and your community need your unique set of gifts, calling and equipping, just as you need theirs. You were meant to need each other, to be as one family, one church, one body. In this you more fully reflect My multiple facets to the world. You were also meant to live life with Me, not apart, so I am thrilled when you are still and turn your thoughts, desires and affection towards Me, longing to know My ways, My thoughts, My desires, My heart. There is a lifetime of knowing, growing and learning open to you, there is no final degrees, no BA, Masters or PHD. What you gain does not end at your last breath, it’s good for eternity. Come, be still, sit a while with Me and know Me.
Hold on, I’m calling you. Are you ready? I sense an excitement within you, a longing, a desire, all for Me. When you’re ready to step out from where you are there is more than you have imagined waiting and I’ll be there to go with you into the new adventures of life, whether it be in your own neighborhood or beyond. It just takes a willing heart and feet. You won’t regret saying yes, granted it may not be all thrills and easy, but will be worth it. You were meant for more than an ordinary life, the more comes when you join in co-labor with Me. Doors and windows will open you have not seen before, divine encounters and opportunities await you. Trust me, take my hand, let’s begin – one step, one yes, at a time.
This is a day I have created. You are My child I also created and purposed to be in this day. I have plans for you to walk out; your surrendered heart and yielded spirit is what I have
waited for. Take My hand, trust in me and let me lead. It will be an exciting journey, your senses will be opened as never before, your eyes will see fresh and new things, you will see old things in new ways. You will understand what escaped you before. Yield to my presence as you begin this day, then it shall be a day as no other, there is no hum-drum life in My presence, it is vibrant, exciting, full of life and possibilities. Come, enter in, and enjoy.
My Beloved, Turn aside from your busy day, come away with me – if only for a little while. I have some things I want you to know, secrets of heaven to reveal. They will be as glistening strands of golden light that stitch together a torn heart; or liquid drops of amber balm soothing a wounded spirit. Turn aside a little while with Me to see the treasures of heaven for you, which all begin with knowing Me and my Son, Jesus Christ.
Deeper, deeper, deeper, I am calling you deeper into Myself, into My love, My presence, My fullness. Deeper than you ever thought possible; deeper into a place the mind cannot fathom, a place of the spirits – yours and Mine. A place intellect doesn’t understand, yet the spirit comprehends. Come closer, go deeper, there is so much more for you, in Me, than what is found on the surface.
I love that the Lord gives us choices, sometimes I think it would be easier if we didn’t have so many, but he wants us to love him by choice not because we have to. There is a quote from Richard Bach “If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they’re yours, if they don’t they never were”.
Mr. Bach’s quote is not exact in our context with the Lord – for we are His creation, yet the Lord has set us free to make our own choices, including Continue reading
