To know deep, lasting joy, we must deeply and daily pursue knowing CHRIST. (1 John 1:1-4)
With Depth Perception!
WHO we need is the GOD of the Bible! Not what man has envisioned; Nor formed with his hands.
Trusting not in the health or wealth which HE gave us…but rather completely in Sovereignty’s plans.
Yes, our need far exceeding all wanting! Without thought to the temporal or passing facades!
So encouraged again are we sent in HIS service…reminded to watch per the WORD of our GOD!
Now cast off then, oh Self, things complacent! Both those thoughts and each action found absent of Zeal.
Serve without hesitation whilst breathing expectant…for great is our SAVIOUR! Behold, HE draws near!
As HIServant awakening the Body as well,
Devotional: Ephesians 1:16-17 “I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers and asking that the GOD of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, the glorious FATHER, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in your knowledge of HIM.”
Wisdom! Oh as HE tells us to cry out for it and that HE will provide it to those who ask diligently! Everything around us, when sifted and filtered through the Perfect Lens of CHRIST, is then seen in light of HIS promises!
Ephesians 1:18-19 “I ask that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know the hope of HIS calling, the riches of HIS glorious inheritance in the saints, and the surpassing greatness of HIS power to us who believe.”
Such blessings are ours so as not to fret and fear in this age which is darkening. Things are occuring as HE said yet we can rejoice and live joyously because we know WHOSE we are!
So lift up the NAME of JESUS! Press into HIS presence daily through reading HIS Wonderful WORD. Learn about Revelation and all HIS promises to us, the Beloved and elect of GOD!
There is no fear in HIS love so remain in the WORD. Continue serving not as though dreading a countdown but as expectant of being lifted up into the Heavens and HIS arms.
Blessed be the NAME of our LORD! Ephesians 3:17b-19 “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the LORD’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of CHRIST, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of GOD.”
Amen and amen!
