Genesis 27 & 28; Psalm 4; Luke 11

It’s like all of or part of last year…wanting to want what God wants…but do I really…???
YES I want to WANT what He wants and in the wanting comes accepting what it is He wants…..not to be figured out....handy that I want Proverbs 3:5-6 to be a verse for this year as well…


Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.


So do not depend on my own understanding……Seek HIS WILL in all that I do……and HE WILL show me which path to take….I believe it and will have to make that choice in every moment, to believe it… to LIVE counterintuitively, to give up my …..surrender to You and deny the NEED, no the tyrannical WANT to understand…

Emotional as you can tell the last couple of days…weeks maybe….

NOT to be driven by them…..to rest in what I KNOW…..That the God of the universe is a God of LOVE and that it is His desire for all to know that love……I don’t understand how or seriously too much of anything else but it seems like that is what I KNOW…today.

Luke 11: 33-36"No one lights a lamp, then hides it in a drawer. It's put on a lamp stand so those entering the room have light to see where they're going. Your eye is a lamp, lighting up your whole body. If you live wide-eyed in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. Keep your eyes open, your lamp burning, so you don't get musty and murky. Keep your life as well-lighted as your best-lighted room."

sometimes it is so very hard to want what God wants... i know this... i live it...it is hard to see what He is doing and how it really is in my best interests...

It is so easy to grow complacent and even proud of who we are... where we are in our faith.

But to become moree humble, to grow more obedient, that is the challenge.

Less of me... More of Him.

In Him is light and there is no shadow...imagine a place/a being of NO shadows...

The more I walk, wrestle, abide, obey, listen, not listen, the more I realize that what GOD wants is us and to reveal Himself to us. As He does this, I am blown away. The Lion, The Lamb, The Law, The Gospel, The Passion, The Jealously, The Consuming Fire, The Prophets' Testimonies, The Bread, The Wine, The Whirlwind, The Storm. He is GOD and what a wonderous I AM.

So I Go said...

... and HE WILL show me which path to take...

love this. love your undying passion to grow in Him;

peace & joy,

jeff

wanted to encourage you today...

you are the Beloved Daughter of God

...and nothing you do, say or think will take that away. nothing you can do, say or think will change the FACT that HE adores you.

and....he created you to be different than all the thousands upon thousands of your sisters so he could enjoy that difference in you.
You reflect a part of the Glory of God that no one else could ever reflect.....keep your face directed at Him and SHINE!
