The Journey of Preparation into Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 212: I'M NOT ASHAMED TO BE THIRSTY FOR HIM!
During my bible devotional time this morning, I was reading Psalm 45 and when I got to verses 10-11, I read them over and over again. As if they were a cold glass of water I was drinking on a hot summer's day. The more I read it the greater my soul was satisfied and refreshed.
King James Version - KJV
Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house;So shall the king greatly desire thy beauty: for he is thy Lord; and worship thou him.
New International Version - NIV
Listen, daughter, and pay careful attention:
Forget your people and your father’s house.
Let the king be enthralled by your beauty;
honor him, for he is your lord. - NIV
Message Bible - MSG
“Now listen, daughter, don’t miss a word:
forget your country, put your home behind you.
Be here—the king is wild for you.
Since he’s your lord, adore him.
Today’s Lesson: The Lord is crazy about you, so give him all of you
On this journey of preparation into singleness, marriage and intimacy with God, there will always be people, places and things that will try and distract you from having intimacy with God, however He wants me to tell you today that;
He wants all of you.
He will not fight for your attention. He will not impose upon you, when your focus is upon others. But when you place you attention and affection toward Him first He will make all your dreams come true.
He wants to love you dangerously.
He wants to show you how deep, how wide and how powerful His love for you is. A kind of love that dies for you, protects you, cries for you, and empowers you. When you surrender to His love, your life will never be the same.
He wants to show you off to the world.
He will never reject you, ignore you or act like you aren't His own. Instead He wants to cause your light to shine so bright that all can see you. Why? Because He is enraptured in your beauty and He wants everyone to see the most beautiful creation he has ever created. When you allow this to happen you will go to places that people only read about in books.
So if you want all of Him, and everything He has promised you to receive, give Him all of you and place Him first.
Some powerful ways to place Him First?
Don't focus on the issues going on in the country or the drama that occurs in your family. Forget those things and lose yourself in Him, by adoring Him with your honor and your love.
Just be….Be with God in the stillness of His presence, breath in His love to drown out fear and doubt…Just be….with Him. This my love is intimacy.
So until tomorrow #justbe #thirsty for Him
With Beautiful Love
