I am igniting your heart to burn – to hunger – with a deep longing for me where like the woman with the issue of blood, you are compelled out of desperation to push through and reach me. I am igniting a hunger in you that will enable you to push past the fears and doubts that would hold you back, the voices that would seek to limit or restrain you, and to push past the distractions that would pull your eyes away from me.
I am calling to the depths of you, inviting you to fix your eyes on me, the prize, the One who is worth any cost. I am the One who is your all in all, the One who longs for your whole heart. I am igniting a reciprocal response in you that answers the longing and the passion that burns in my eyes for you, my bride.
Allow your eyes to be transfixed by the fire in mine. Close your ears to the voices of the crowd and listen for my voice above them all. Push through to my voice. Push through to my side. Push through to the deliverance and freedom that is yours in me.
Push, push, push through!
Activation: There is an invitation to linger for longer, to go deeper than before, to resist the temptation to move on too quickly, to allow your hunger for Jesus to grow and intensify. Ask Holy Spirit if there are any areas where you are pulling back or pulling away instead of pushing through and pushing towards Jesus. If so, why? Ask Him to ignite that deep hunger in your heart so that you are so desperate for Him and Him alone that nothing will keep you from him.
Psalm 42:7 (ESV)
Deep calls to deep at the roar of your waterfalls; all your breakers and your waves have gone over me.
Song of Solomon 8:6 (GNBUK)
Close your heart to every love but mine; hold no one in your arms but me. Love is as powerful as death; passion is as strong as death itself. It bursts into flame and burns like a raging fire.
