from the heart
We are His precious bride. He loves us. He is jealous over us. He doesn't want us running after idols, gods, etc. He just wants us all to Himself. Yet many times we don't comply, we don't care. Not just when we were unsaved, but even now, as born again believers.
You can go to church, know all of the right things to say, do all of the write actions, and still be broken, empty, and running after other things.
It is only the power of the Holy Spirit that is able to break every chain of sin, deliver from every distraction. Paul tells us to throw off every weight and the sin which so easily besets us - but not in your own strength, in the strength of God that is on the inside of you. And when you get into His anointing, His presence; not just standing there physically, but actually yielding and pouring your heart out before Him, He comes and cleanses you, frees you, forgives you.
There really is nothing like His presence. In His presence is fullness of joy, peace, love, everything you need.
And Yet, knowing this, we can be a disobediant people, just like the chilcdren of Israel, who, after God showed Himself strong on their behalf with deliverance, provision, blessing, fruitfullness, love, still repeatedly turned their backs on Him.
I want to encourage you today, me, all of us, to look into our hearts and lives. Are we making time for Him like we should, or are we just going through the motions.
Are we loving Him like He deserves to be loved, or are we loving other things.
Are we running after Him whole heartedly, like the day we fell in love with Him, or have we become complacent and nonchalant, not even realizing and acknowledging His presence when He is in the room?
Did you know that everything, every need, every want, every desire, God wants to fullfill. He isn't trying to take anything from us - He is trying to get things to us.
Make a decision today to love Him like you've never loved Him; run after Him like you've never run after Him. Acknowledge Him as a person like never before. Be with Him in the midst of the business, and cares of life. Make time for Him. He wants to be with you, love you, run after you and be there for you in the midst of all the struggles. Let Him in today.
I also want to encourage you, a very good series that I have listened to many times - is called "Knowing the Person of the Holy Spirit". This is a campmeeting from my pastor, Dr. Rodney Howard-Browne. It is life changing. It will help you get closer and go deeper in God.
