Yes, I do realize that summer is over and that I haven't received my healing yet. Stay posted, because I believe with all my heart that I will. I will not be moved nor shaken, for I trust in God and God alone. He is faithful, it is who He is. I do long for my body to be healed and to be whole again, but even more so do I long to know the Healer. It is He who satisfies my soul. Please read the new post that I just logged moments ago.

Experiencing God

Do you long for peace, in the midst of turmoil? Love, when you feel unloved? Hope, when things seem hopeless? There is only one way and that is to be with the One who IS peace, who IS hope....who IS love!
We fill our lives with so much. Things that we think are so important, but we give God but a few moments and then we wonder why we don't have His peace and joy and love in our lives. He is the source of all Good. In order to have good things we must "be" with Him. If you long to "shine forth light" must be with "The Light"....want to be loving and feel loved? You must spend TIME with Love Himself. He then pours HIMSELF into us....filling us so that we can pour out.
I was reading in Psalms this wonder its said of David, that he was man after God's own heart. David spent TIME with intimacy. "O God, You are my God; earnestly will I seek You; my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land, where no water is." Ps 63:1 amp "My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You;" Ps 64:8 amp
Have you ever experienced God? I don't mean do you believe in God....I mean experience Him as a person? Ever see Him clearly? Ever feel His presence? Ever hear His voice? If not, you are sorely missing out on Life itself...Himself. God is real, not a dream, vision, prayer, thought, He's real.
Ever just go to Psalms and read it looking for mention of God and His character or what is written about Him? I've been doing that just recently. Just a verse alone , when you dwell on it , meditate on it and really try to understand it can cause you to have a headache....."Before the moutains were brought forth, or ever You had formed and given birth to the earth and the world, even from ever lasting to everlasting You are God." Ps 90:2 God has no beginning and no end. Ok, stop there and ponder, think on that, dwell there!! We can't even understand that thought. God is sooooo much bigger than what we think or believe.
God is inifinately Good, Loving, faithful, etc, etc....and yet, we spend so little time with Him and fill our lives with everything that is LESS. Reading Psalms you can see that David had an inkling of who God is, as he spent time with Him. He wanted to dwell in God's courts, he tells God he longs for Him. The more time we spend with God, to KNOW HIM, the more we will want Him. God doesn't want a "glance" from us....He wants our entire hearts. Wow! What we don't understand is that He is LIFE, He is LOVE, and we are full to overflowing, lacking in NOTHING if we run after Him with all our hearts. Its a lie straight from the enemy (and one of his greatest deceptions) when we think we are giving up something of value in order to pursue God. There is nothing more wonderful than God, and yet, we live our lives as if everything else is more worth our time, our pursuit, our hearts than Him.
Oh, believe me, I'm only scratching the surface....I'm soooo far from "arriving". But...I smile as I say this....I'm beginning to see HIM....and I'm beginning to understand that He's worth it....worth all!! I'm beginning to long for His presence. It's only a beginning, but I know this beginning of my hearts pursuit of Him is pleasing to Him...and He promises...."And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart." Jer 29:13
I want to experience God. Not something "of God"....but God Himself. I won't stop until I do. I want to say along with David, "Whom have I in heaven but You? And I have no delight or desire on earth beside You." Ps 73:24 amp Ever feel DELIGHTED IN GOD? Be honest!!
"As the hart (deer) pants and longs for the water brooks, so I pant and long for You, O God. My inner self thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God?" Ps 42:1,2 amp
God is the ultimate prize. He is the treasure worth selling all for. Get to know Him, personally, for yourself. See if He alone will satisfy your soul. His word promises that. He can't do that when your soul is full already. Go, get your bible out and go before THE KING....the Creator of all things and lay all your burdens down and go into His presence. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. He longs for intimacy with you, He will reveal Himself to you. He's worth it!
