“Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love him.” 1Cor. 2:9
Good morning church,
I have not posted in a couple days. Thursday morning I got up early and went golfing with a friend who has been in Afghanistan for 6 months, is back in the states for few days before he goes back, and asked me to take him to play a round of golf. I had to say yes! Yesterday morning I met with a person at 6:30am for accountability. Have you prayed and asked one or two people to be in an accountability group with you?
Everything we know of about God, of God of have experienced from God come through his self revelation and his desire to be known to us. God is pretty clever. If he did not want us to know he existed he could have pulled that off pretty easily. He just never could of created us. For all of eternity God’s essence was that of Father and of love. In a period od time he chose to to become creator and created us. Out of self-revelation he created us in his image. (Gen. 1:27) Creating us in his image is not so much a reference to who we are, but to who God is. That his desire is so great to be know to us and through us to the world that he actually created us to contain his image, his glory. You will not find this in the deities of Islam, Hinduism, or Buddhism.
To further reveal himself to us, God sent his Son, Jesus, so we could scratch, sniff, touch, and see God. And so we could be restored to the full image and knowledge of God, Jesus suffered death on the cross, descended into hell, redeemed all sins, rose from the grave, and ascended to the Father.
Then to take it over the top in his desire to be know to us, not only did God create us in his image, become flesh so we could see his image, complete the saving works of the cross to restore our image, but through the gift of his Spirit he actually physically and spiritually indwelled in us!
Hear me this morning, this is my wake up shout to you, GOD WANTS YOU TO KNOW HM!!!! GOD IS SO DESPERATE AND HAS, AND IS, GOING TO THE MOST EXTREEM MEASURES TO REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOU!!!! AND PRAISE GOD TO ME!!
The Holy Spirit is in you and desires to lead you, teach to, and assist you to become the holy revelation of God. Ask him this morning! I have some Scriptures for you to read: 1Cor. 2:9-16, Eph. 3:14-21, 1John 4:13
But before you do, take a little time and write out your own personal “Bible Prayer” of sorts. Write a prayer of thanksgiving for the Holy Spirit and his presence and revelation during this time you are going to be in The Word. Spend time writing it out, then stick it in your Bible, or save it to your phone or tablet, however you read his Word. Then, pull it out at the beginning of your devotion time before you open your Bible and read it. This will open you heart and mind to experience God in the words you are reading.
ost your reflections and experiences with the revelation of God below and/or any prayer requests for revelation.
