Come to the Feast

Jesus has set a table of extraordinary delicacies before us, beloved ones.

He anoints your head with the oil of gladness and fills your cup so that it overflows without ceasing. In the joyous times and in the painful moments, despite the trials and persecution of life, He want to continually feed you with the knowledge of Himself and His love (Psalm 23:5). Feed upon His faithfulness.

All are welcome to come to Him. You who hunger and thirst for true love, beauty and authenticity are welcome to come. There is no cost, no perfect perormance required, for He has paid the price. All He wants is your heart, so come freely to receive of His (Isaiah 55:1-3). Continue reading

Dive In!

My heart is full with the knowledge that Christ’s return is soon. So many of us are living for ourselves, Christians included. Many aren’t living for God with the knowledge of His return in their hearts.

Know Him? No

If you don’t know Him today, know that God loves you unconditionally. He aches for you to know Him and have life and life abundantly! Come to Him and receive His everlasting love for you, my friend. Contact me or find someone who you think is truly living for and in love with Jesus and talk with them. Even tell Jesus Himself at this very moment of your desire to know Him. You won’t be disappointed!

Know Him? Yes

Are you trying to live as the world lives, fulfilling your longings with money/material things, success, activities and other people without satisfying your longing in God? He’s the only One who can satisfy you, beloved. Raise your heart to Him.

It’s not easy to constantly die to our soulish wants and desires and we will do so until His return. But come to Him, spend time with Him alone daily, and also bring Him into every aspect of your life here. You will grow in experiencing His yoke that is easy and light.

He Aches For You!

He aches to hear your voice, and also wants to tell you how He feels about youalways love and gladness! Ask Him, beloved! Ask Him! He will speak of His love to you!

Go on the never-ending pursuit of seeking God and searching out His unfathomable riches. Talk to Him and listen for His reply. Dive into His Word and ask questions like, “What was Mary feeling as she sat at Your feet listening to You speak?” What were You feeling, Jesus?!” He will answer, I know it!

It’s not just for the pastor or missionary or the person who’s “crazy” for God. It’s for ALL of us! Dive into seeking out the God of the universe in all His endlessness! You won’t be disappointed!

God’s Rest in the Here and Now

The other day I asked God for an acronym for “rest” (that is, trust and rest in Him), and this is what I felt He spoke to me:

REST = Reserve Established by the Spirit of Truth

I shared this with a friend, and he shared with me an acronym using the word “busy” – which actually describes the counterfeit of true rest in God:

BUSY = Being Under Satan’s Yoke

If we are resting in God, we’ll have a reserve of energy in every way at all times! His Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth, will do just as Jesus said – Guide us into all truth and reveals to us the things and words of God (John 16:13), comfort us, counsel us, help us. He will point our eyes to Christ in all things (John 15:26).

God fills every part of us with His Spirit: “they were all filled (diffused throughout their souls) with the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:4)– our “souls” mean “our minds, will and emotions,” every part of us as well as the Spirit of God living inside of us! He will remind us of who we are as believers–children of the Living God saved by grace. He will teach us continually about who God is and who we are in Christ!

We’ve no reason to worry, fret, doubt or have any concern! God carries all our burdens if we let Him and renew our minds with His truth. He–the Uncreated One who created all things–holds everything together, and takes care of it all! Let us have holy UNconcern! (I heard this at a conference this weekend.)

Some other “R-words” come to mind as well:

  • Righteousness
  • Rest/Restoration
  • Reliance (dependence on God)
  • Rooted (in Christ)
  • Right Response (because rest and trust in God are just that!)
  • Reality (of living in complete trust with God)
  • Renewal/Renewed, Refreshing/Refreshed, Revival/Revived
  • Relaxed (we can be because God has everything under control!)
  • Redemption/Redeemed
  • River (as in “Rivers of Living Water”) – John 7:38

“He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.”
(John 7:38 Amplified)

“[For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, by having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints…”
(Ephesians 1:17-18 Amplified)

Can you think of any more “R-words” or related things to add to what has already been shared? Feel free to respond!
