Quite some time ago I heard a word that sent me an alert and began to change my walk with Jesus. It said "Some people seek God because he is useful. And some people seek God because he is beautiful" I had to think on that awhile. I had to examine my own heart motives. Then I found that I needed to pause and do some relearning. And soon I did make some new discoveries. God wants us to rise up above our soulish emotions and trust in getting to know him in truth and trust, He watns us to know him as our Heavenly Father and not just as a source of problem solving and need meeting. My life began to change as I renewed my mind to this. I set mmy heart to search deeper and locate the true nature of Father's beautiful heart.
He desires to impart to us a new God created identity. His heart toward us. He wants us to know him intimately so that we can accurately acknolwedge him in all of our ways. He invites us into hsi family
Unlearning to relearn
God begins to change hearts and mindsets as we yield with the whole heart. Seasons change and we change with them. He will begin to guide our feet toward new day positioning. Deeper learnings. Learning that he is always for our great good. Learning that he who is in us is greater than he who is in the world. The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us. It's the deep revealings of his beautiful life plan over us that will recreate us. When we recognize the truths of who he has made us to be we can become like him. We become partakers of his divine nature. Christlike and strong in him and in the power of his might. God said "I want to use my people to show men how much I love them."
God keeps telling us to ask, seek and knock, to be anxious for nothing. There's no fear in his love. We're to present our requests for the good things Jesus said he is so willing to give. Jesus said a good father would not give a snake to a child who asked a fish, so how much more can we have confidence in the good gifts we have a right to access from our heavenly Father? I'm glad to know that I have freedom to ask for purity and holiness when the thoughts of my own heart accuse me. It's not our perfect performance, it's because His heart is greater than our heart.
Life is so beautiful once we've yielded all control to him. Individual intimacy connects us to the wonder of himself. Partakers of his divine nature, being prepared to do the greater works that Jesus promised. All power has been given to Jesus and we set our heart in his rest. Possessing the land we have inherited. It's the beautiful land of God's delight, beyond senses and sight. The land where the good shepherd is leading. Holy Spirit is the Great Shepherd of the sheep, and we are delightful to him. Accepted in the Beloved. Where we do everything in love and we have all sufficiency in all things. Home, in God.
