My people, your gaze is too earthbound. Lift your eyes, not just occasionally or when reminded. It is because of my strength and perfection that I am the only God that you need. Allow your eyes to hold my gaze, adoring me in humbleness, pouring out your trembling hope at my feet. It’s the best place to be.
Choose the real me; the ‘joy in sorrows deliverer’, the one who wants you even when you don’t desire me. Serve knowing I do test people: remember Abraham and Isaac, whilst reminding yourself that my everlasting arms are underneath you. Grasp and hold Me as I dwell in and among you who believe through my son’s sacrifice. All powers are under my feet.
Your voice is sweetness to me, your seeking eyes delight me and I long to carry your wounds and cares. Though I am far above all that you face, never forget that I choose to inhabit you by my strong, sensitive Holy Spirit, beyond all human understanding.
How can others see who I am? Show them over and over. Demonstrate, vigorously and powerfully, the utter mystery of healing, miracles and my Kingdom. You have been admitted into my vast Kingdom and are my army agents on earth.
Activation: In John 6 the disciples could not accept that Jesus had come down from heaven. Are there parts of the bible that you do not accept? Ask God if or where you have a view of Him that attempts to humanise him, before repenting and choosing to accept what He says.
John 6:60-63 (NRSV)
When many of his disciples heard it, they said, ‘This teaching is difficult; who can accept it? But Jesus, being aware that his disciples were complaining about it, said to them, ‘Does this offend you? Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the spirit that gives life. The flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.’
Job 11:7 (NIV)
Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?
