This morning as I sat reading an Elijah List post by Cindy Stewart, something she wrote caught my attention. “Jesus is inviting us to sit with Him and discuss what will happen next. He is looking for close companions, not a casual engagement.” God will not share deep secrets with casual friends. You can wish for it, but if you want to experience deep intimate relationship, it will cost you your time.
Did you know that it’s always been the Fathers desire to commune with you? Remember how He visited with Adam each day? How He spoke with Abraham? How He communed with Moses. His constant exchange with David even before he was king? And Jesus, who only did what He saw the Father do and only said what He heard the Father say.
Romans 12:12 TPT says; Let this hope burst forth within you, releasing a continual joy. Don’t give up in a time of trouble, but commune with God at all times.
I love it when God speaks to me! I can just be wondering about something I saw or heard and He will explain the reason to me. He will never withhold things from those who love Him. NEVER! It could be a dream that I wonder about and soon He will show me the meaning of the dream and why He showed it to me. Sometimes I share and sometimes I don’t.
The closer I get to Jesus, the fewer friends I have. I make religious people extremely uncomfortable. They just can’t pick up what I’m laying down. It’s ok, for I have a friend who sticks closer than a brother. He intercedes for me always. His Holy Spirit leads me into all truth and gives me wise counsel. When I stand on His covenant promise and connect with His Word, reminding Him of His promises, His great love overwhelms me.
To have relationship with this awesome God, you must not allow time to get in the way. So often I hear people say, “I just don’t have time!” My friend, if you don’t have time for God then you’re spending your time doing the wrong things. There is nothing more valuable! Proverbs 3:32 TPT says; Every violent thug is despised by the Lord, but every tender lover finds friendship with God and will hear his intimate secrets.
Are you a tender lover? If so, you will find nothing else satisfies but being full of Him. God is Love and only those who have received His Love know how to Love with His Love. His Love covers a multitude of sin. You can easily turn a deaf ear to hate when Love is your filter. You won’t allow opinions to frustrate you when Love shows you the truth.
Father, I will not leave this place until I’m so full of You that it’s obvious who I belong to. You alone are my hearts desire and my time belongs to You. All for You. All for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
