Psalm 78:2,4 (VOICE) I will open my mouth in parables; I will speak of ancient mysteries— We will not keep these things secret from their children; rather, we will tell the coming generation All about the praise that is due to the Eternal One. We will tell them all about His strength, power, and wonders.
Beloved, delve into the mysteries of Me. There is such beauty in knowing and being known – such joy and depth of affection in the intimacy of understanding. Just as a couple that has been married for decades and who are deeply in love can finish one another’s sentences and preemptively anticipate each other’s needs and wants, so I desire that intimacy with you.
I want you to know how I think – to feel confident in how I move. I want you to be intimately aware of the mysteries that make Me who I AM, just as I know you and all the mysteries that make up who you are. From that depth of understanding comes an unshakable foundation of trust and appreciation. It is worth the effort to cultivate. So delve into the mysteries of Me and see the beauty that comes forth, beloved, and then share Me with the world.
Ephesians 1:18 (TPT) I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling —that is, the wealth of God’s glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones!
Beloved, may you have eyes to see what I have called you to. May you know Me, and know My heart, that vision and understanding may come with ease. Behold, I have revelation to make known to you that exceeds imagination. Ask Me for it.
Hunger and thirst for more of Me. Desire the things of My Kingdom. For as you set your eyes on things above, I align the things below. Make ready, beloved. Press in and know Me, for knowing Me is the greatest gift of all.
Genesis 3:8 (KJV) And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
Beloved, My desire is and always has been to walk among you and to talk with you. My desire has always been for you to be naked and unashamed, with nothing hindering our intimacy and communion. This is still My desire today.
So choose wisely, beloved, in what you say and do. Be intentional not to choose things that bring shame that would cause you to hide from Me. And in the moments you realize you have, quickly repent and move on. Let nothing separate you from Me or cause you to want to hide, for you are Mine.
Job 11:7 (NIV) Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
Beloved, I AM fathomless, yet I AM worth the effort to try. The depths of My mysteries have no end. The stretch of My hand goes beyond comprehension. And yet, those who seek Me are blessed, and those who hunger and thirst for Me are filled.
So though My ways may defy understanding, still you should seek to understand. And though My thoughts are higher than your thoughts, seek to raise yours to Mine. I AM fathomless, beloved, and yet seek to fathom Me. Continue reading “Seek to Fathom Me”
Matthew 5:6 (GW) Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for God’s approval. They will be satisfied.
Beloved, when your heart is fixed on Me, nothing you say or do can pull you from My grasp. This is not to say you will be perfect, nor that you will be sinless, simply that if your heart is fixed on Me, My heart will stay fixed on you.
I’m not afraid of your imperfection. Your flawed choices don’t surprise Me or scare Me off. I AM for those who are for Me, and as you seek to yield your path to Me, I will lead you on. So cultivate your hunger, and stir up your thirst. Continually increase your pursuit of Me, and trust Me to light your way.
Proverbs 3:17-18 (TPT) The ways of wisdom are sweet, always drawing you into the place of wholeness. Seeking for her brings the discovery of untold blessings, for she is the healing tree of life to those who taste her fruits.
Beloved, seek fast after wisdom and ask Me for it, for I will not withhold it. But remember that seeking and having wisdom is only part of the journey. Implementing that wisdom and making decisions based on it is essential as well.
For as you walk in wisdom, blessing overtakes you. It draws you into a place of wholeness. And from that place of completeness, you are able to effectively pour out to others. So seek wisdom. Ask for it. Then walk in wisdom that you might be blessed and be a blessing. Continue reading “Walk in Wisdom”
Psalm 105:3 (VOICE) Revel in His holy name. May the hearts of the people who seek the Eternal celebrate and experience great joy.
Beloved, take great pleasure in knowing who I AM – in knowing My character, in knowing My name. I AM steadfast and everlasting – unchanging and fully reliable. I AM your true north – the One who gives you both stability and direction, so look to Me.
Seek Me with great fervor, and understand My worth. Take joy in both the pursuit and the times of intimacy. Remember the whole of the journey is of value, not simply the destination points along the way. Take time to experience the great joy of relationship with Me.
Job 36:26 (GW) Certainly, God is so great that he is beyond our understanding. The number of his years cannot be counted.
Beloved, seek out My mysteries. Continually seek to plumb My depths. Simply because I AM so great I defy full understanding doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. There is much beauty both in knowing Me and the pursuit of doing so. And though you might seek Me all of your days, there will always be more of Me to ferret out.
So endeavor to know Me, the unknowable God. Seek to understand, and refrain from wrongly judging Me in moments you do not comprehend My ways. I AM omnipotent and all-knowing. I AM also merciful and good, slow to anger and long suffering. Trust My character, and relentlessly pursue the mystery of Me. Continue reading “Relentlessly Pursue the Mystery of Me”
John 1:51 (NLT) Then he said, “I tell you the truth, you will all see heaven open and the angels of God going up and down on the Son of Man, the one who is the stairway between heaven and earth.”
Beloved, I AM the way. Follow Me. All of heaven and earth lie before Me, and nothing is hidden from My eye. Connect yourself to Me, and open yourself to the things of Me. There is so much more accessible than you could begin to imagine – so grab hold.
Through Me, dead are raised. Through Me, blind eyes see. Through Me, lame can walk. Through Me, the broken are healed, those in bondage are set free, those who weep are comforted, and so much more. I open the heavens, and through Me heaven touches earth – the supernatural becoming natural. So connect to Me.
Psalm 63:1 (TPT) O God of my life, I’m lovesick for you in this weary wilderness. I thirst with the deepest longings to love you more, with cravings in my heart that can’t be described. Such yearning grips my soul for you, my God!
Beloved, be tenacious in your pursuit of Me. Be relentless in the chase. Have no worries, I’ll most certainly allow Myself to be caught, but I enjoy the efforts put forth in the pursuit.
So let your actions declare Me worthy of the efforts. Let your actions align with the words recited in song. Saying I AM worthy isn’t enough, beloved, show those sentiments to be true through your actions: unrelenting heartfelt pursuit. Continue reading “Unrelenting Heartfelt Pursuit”
