The Lord is calling us.. crying out for us to get to know Him more.
The Bible says He has supplied for all of our needs, but do we really, truly believe it?
The Word says, He is our great Physician… do we call upon Him, the master of the universe? Not just for prayers begging to be healed, but do we seek Him? Wait on Him? for Him to give us answers?
Do we trust Him? 100%? We know He loves us, but He wants a relationship. But what do we need first? To learn to hear His voice.
Have you ever heard His voice?
Do you know how to hear His voice?
Sometimes His voice is as clear as day… an audible voice. But, that’s a rarity today. I have only met one person who says they hear the Lord audibly. Have you ever felt as though you were talking to yourself? Giving yourself ideas… yet, almost thought you were a little crazy? What is that were Him?
He TALKS to us. The Bible says He does. If you don’t think you are worth being talked to… check out all the people in the Bible He spoke to, and it’s almost guaranteed they were a “worse” human being for all practical purposes. He loves us no matter what. NO MATTER WHAT!
We need to be quiet. Sit, write what comes to our mind. Our Father in heaven is kind. He is convicting, but Kind, so kind. He wants to know you. You are His child. He formed YOU in your mother’s womb. No one else can do that. It’s His miracle of life. You are no mistake. You have a purpose in this life… the dreams and passions in your heart. (Do you know who put those there? He did. As silly as they may seem… it’s worth it to take a deeper look at them.)
I pray now that your heart be awakened to the passions and desires that have long been dormant inside of you. The Lord says now is the time for you to thrive. He desires great abundance for you. I speak again to your heart… awaken. AWAKEN! Desires… dreams… passions… awaken. He has created you for a time such as this. He has NOT created you to be a slave to this world. A slave to your job or anyone else. He has created you FREE. Free to be YOU… just the way He made you. He created YOU in HIS image… that’s an amazing image.
Listen to this twice. The first time you can read the lyrics, but the second time, close your eyes and just listen and breath it in. Listen again if you need to.
Today is the day to take care of yourself… listen to your heart, believe in who He created you to be. The expectations of this world are fleeting… rather place your eyes upon Him… upon His throne.He will guide you.
Just ask. Simply ask.
Be quiet. and Listen. All He wants us to do is listen. His words are kind and full of love. Not of condemnation and ‘”what ifs”… but of life and purpose and living our lives focused on Him and who He created us to be.
That… is freedom. Pure simple freedom. It’s not easy… the world’s standards say otherwise. It starts with ONE step in front of the other. ONE small decision leads to another. Sometimes ONE decision is harder than the next. But HE… He always follows through and loves on His children. He always accompanies us and carries us when we believe we can no longer continue.
I challenge you this week… take 10 minutes to journal any thoughts that comes through your head. Most of this post was written with my head down on my desk and my eyes closed. Whatever thought came to my mind… I typed it. Is this the most amazing blog ever? maybe not. Is it super creative… I’m not sure. But it doesn’t matter. I want to be obedient, even when it doesn’t look “right” or “perfect”. It has taken me a while to get here… but I’m happy (most of the time) with being “here”… “present”… “not performing”.
My heart’s cry is for you to know Him. The creator. Not the stereotypical… “Jesus loves me because the Bible tells me so”, but a knowing, deep in your soul, that the creator of the Universe, creator of mankind, creator of all things good, loves you completely. 100%. Learn to rest in that love. Believe it. Hold on tight to it. Once you grasp it… you’ll be able to give it away. Pure & Simple Love.
Love is what makes the world go round right? It might actually be true.
Thank you for taking the time to read my late night ramblings.
