“If one loves God truly…he is known by God…and he is owned by Him.” Part of truly loving God is loving the ones He loves, as He wants to love them. Do we?
I've often struggled with claiming the promises in the Word as my own. But what I am learning is it is about me because my life is about He not me.
I am not the owner of my body or life; I am merely the steward. I don’t have the right or the ability to care for myself.
This post holds a huge lesson about taking care of myself. It's a deep lesson I have to repeat over and over again. Christ is my everything, even my awareness of self.
The truth of Christ in me, as me ia that He is the Source of Life. We often are unaware of who He is impacting through us and how.
I'm not interested in a casual cerebral knowing, I wanted that deep awareness only Christ gives. I needed Him to say, “I see you, John!”
I can easily conceive of my desire to know God, but to comprehend that I am known and seen by Him? Wow, the Lord sees me whether anyone else sees me or not.
You know, just the smallest drop of Christ’s Life is enough to send ripples across the whole landscape. And where those waves go is out of our purview.
It is one thing to spend time with someone, but it is quite another to see them. To see the person, not just a person, is a enormous gift to that person.
When we block the flow of God’s love into our hearts, we have a love deficit and a big problem. Is this deficit behind the character issues that plague us?
When the cock crowed, Peter saw the betrayal of his denials. And it crushed his heart. How many times has dawn broken and I have not seen any of my denials?
When I was sick recently, the Holy Spirit showed me something new about healing. Turns out God was after relationship while I was after miraculous healing.
