All of Heaven Inside You

I am amazed by our God. I feel so loved that He pours out His love and gives so much of Himself. He is so beautiful and yet even more so. He holds onto us tighter than we often realize, and He will NEVER let go, even when we miss the mark or make mistakes. He is so faithful!

He will also never let you down. If it ever seems that way, it is not true, though I myself have experienced that place of feeling painfully distant from the Lord. Thankfully, things aren’t always as they appear to our natural senses.

Feelings are not always in agreement with the truth, and at times I’ve found that persevering is most difficult when my emotions are in a bad way. Our emotions do not always agree with His truth, and our timing is not always in alignment with His. But if you set yourself to keep your gaze on Him, and in quiet trust you wait on Him, He will never disappoint you. He is your Rock and your Salvation.

He is a good Father and Jesus is a perfect Husband. The Holy Spirit is a perfect Comforter. He gives us good gifts! After all, He gave Jesus! What would He do but to want to BE with you!

Often we just do not rest from our striving and we allow fears and distractions to take our focus captive, pulling it away from God, where our focus should be even in difficulties.

Refuse to listen to the lies of the enemy of your soul. That enemy wants only to cut off your abiding connection with the Lord, do not entertain his lies in your mind or his feelings that lie to your soul.

Allow nothing to come in between you and the Lord! He has deposited ALL of the treasures of Heaven inside you! He wants to show you great and mighty things of which you know not, yet they are already within you by His Spirit inside you, waiting for you to recognize and release them by His power and strength! How can we release something we don’t recognize? May He open up our eyes to all He has placed inside us.

Can you relate to this? Do you realize that with God’s Holy Spirit in you, you have all of Heaven within reach? Have you ever had fears or other challenges that seemed to keep you from seeing the truth of God dwelling inside you? Have emotions ever caused you to feel as if God was not going to come through in your life or situation? Share your experiences below.

Morning Worship

Oh, Jesus, we arise and greet the day and worship You. We lift Your name, be high and lifted up upon our praises as we love on You! You are worthy, worthy, worthy of our praises!

Father, we bless Your name! So thankful we are for You, our loving and perfect Father who gives good and perfect gifts. You never give us a stone when we ask for You to satisfy us with Your Bread of Life. You are always faithful and You care so deeply for us!

Precious Holy Spirit, how You lead and guide us. You help turn our eyes back to Jesus when they stray or when fear tries to get in the way. We thank You that You help us and comfort us with the love of the Father and the desire of His Son.

We are vessels filled with You, a deposit within that grows continually as we ask the Lord to consume us all the more, and Your fire making us into ministers of God’s flaming fire for His glory and His Kingdom of love, truth and light!

If You Come to Jesus, Then Rivers of Water

“On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, ‘If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive…”
(John 7:37-39)

If #1: If you come to Jesus

If #2: And if you believe in Him

Then: Rivers of God’s living water will flow from your heart.

Let us continually come to You, Lord. Let us put off all unbelief. Let us be filled with Your Spirit and have rivers of Your living water flow forth from our hearts. Let an ocean be formed from Your pouring forth into us and pouring forth from us!

Israel – A Seal Upon God’s Heart

I was listening to Misty Edwards’ song “You Won’t Relent” while driving home one night and God began revealing more of His heart for Israel to me. I’ve been praying that He would do this, and little by little God is opening my eyes and syncing my heart with His.

This song expresses the relentless nature of God’s love–the jealous flame of His love so unquenchable that not even death can stop it. Jesus, after all, died on the cross to take away our sins and conquer death, rising again to life and now seated at the Father’s right hand: THAT is real love!

“You won’t relent until You have it all…”

The Law and the Prophets, the Psalms, Song of Solomon and so forth–the entire Bible is the story of God’s love for His people and how He will do anything to bring them to return to Him. And He has set Israel as a seal upon His heart, desiring to this day that any of the Jewish people who do not know Yeshua as Messiah to be saved through Him.

“I’ll set you as a seal upon my heart, as a seal upon my arm,
For there is love that is as strong as death,
Jealousy demanding as the grave,
And many waters cannot quench this love.”

I see two different meanings in this:

That we pray for God to seal our hearts with His jealous, unfailing love:  “I’ll set [God] as a seal upon my heart.” And second, how He loves us so much that we are like a seal upon His heart:  “I’ll set [My people] as a seal upon My heart.”

And so I pray for Israel, that you would know God’s love in that He has set you upon His heart, and also that you would encounter Yeshua, setting Him as a seal upon your hearts.

As it is written in Song of Solomon 8:6-7 (ESV):

“Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm,
for love is strong as death,
jealousy is fierce as the grave.
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
the very flame of the LORD.
Many waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods drown it…”

God, I pray that Your beloved Jewish people would know You. Pour out Your great love upon them even more fully. I pray that You would set watchmen on the wall and that You would make Jerusalem a praise in all the earth. Let them and let us, too, know Your vehement, fiery love for us–a holy love that never ends. Give us Your heart, God.
