I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I’m pursuing, but I run with passion into his abundance so that I may reach the purpose for which Christ Jesus laid hold of me to make me his own. Philippians 3:12 TPT
That is reason enough to keep going after God. To spend time with Him every morning, thinking on Him throughout the day and rejoicing in Him at night. My walk with God is mine alone. My search for Him is like a treasure hunter who gives all she has for that one prize.
You may observe my walk, but you’ll never make my walk your own. No my friend, your own treasure awaits you. It lies hidden beneath the pages of God’s Word, waiting for your fingers to find, your eyes to see and your heart to understand. How sad that some will never see. I’m sure it grieves the heart of Father that He has children who don’t want to know Him, don’t want to spend time with Him and don’t call out to Him. The only time they use His name is to curse, or as a by-word.
They don’t yet know that His name is above all names. They don’t understand the power behind it nor the grace that comes with it. My life has been changed by the Name of Jesus and the blood He shed has covered me, kept me from harm and the evil plans of my enemies. I’ve felt His presence rush in to surround me, consuming all fear and flooding me with peace.
As Paul said, I may not be perfect, but I press on to make it my own because Jesus made me His own. I’m just pressing deeper into my Father’s arms because that is where my treasure abides.
