Everything I write about and share comes from knowing Him.
Not knowing of Him, trying to write the perfect scriptural message, or having that good word that inspires—it’s from sitting at His feet, seeking His face, saturating myself in His Word and walking through my day in sync with Him.
I used to know of Him. I could quote scripture, read studies, served in church, attended groups, but my life wasn’t transforming like the Bible described. My comfort, peace and joy was limited to those moments when I was inside the church building or at that powerful conference. I’d go home and “life” would smack would me in the face, knocking me right out of peace. I’d work harder to “do better” and try to “stay in peace” only to find myself fighting with my natural human tendencies that just kept getting in the way of “righteousness.”
Can anyone relate?
That push and pull has faded in my life. And to many, it may seem like my life circumstances have gotten better and that’s why.
But it’s not.
I still experience overwhelming situations that could easily send me to a place of hopelessness and defeat. This is “life” on this side of Heaven. What has changed is the inside of me.
He’s changed me, and continues to, and it’s nothing I’ve worked to obtain. I’ve learned to yield to Him, walk with Him, learning His ways as His presence and power fills me until I’m overflowing—a new life in the spirit.
He heals every broken place in my heart that’s been wounded by life.
He restores my joy.
He sings over me.
He fills me with a supernatural peace and strength to rise and rise again!
He is who He says He is.
This treasure is not found in knowing of Him, and “doing” all the right things, but in knowing Him.
When we seek His face, believing Him at His Word we open ourselves up to that new life that is promised to us as we learn what it means to live in His presence, and walk with Him hand in hand.
This is His invitation to all of us.
Know Him, and experience the abundant life that Jesus paid for.
