Alive

I’ve been a bit teary this morning as I’ve been reading God’s Word. It’s in these moments when the Word seems so clear…

an exposing of deeds,

of thought,

of motive,

of desire.

There’s nothing like it. There’s NOTHING like Him! How can a book contain such treasures that I can read it until the day I die and still continue to have awakenings and “Aha” moments that leave me speechless? I have to confess, I’m fearful of growing cold. I’m fearful that I will miss Him, simply because I don’t care. But this morning was a reminder that,

The LORD’S lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)

We have a personal God. And by His very Spirit that has made it’s home in every believer and through His Word that’s alive and active, we are

ushered into peace,

given hope,

promised a future,

granted joy that sustains.

We may fear that we will fail Him… but HE WILL NEVER FAIL US!

HE WILL NEVER FAIL YOU!

His promise to never leave or forsake US is one aspect of His love that draws me back to Him every day. Today was one of those mornings. It was almost as if God Himself nestled Himself beside me. In one hand he cupped my shoulder, pulling me in as if to cradle me in an embrace, and with the other He held His book and read His Letter into my ears. His voice is peaceful but strong. It’s thick and full, yet quiet all at the same time. I remember a time that all this black, white, and red didn’t mean much. I knew that it should, but it didn’t. Being “born again” is real. A new Heather came to life with new eyes and a new heart. I’m not bragging here… well, if I’m bragging I can only brag about the grace that’s been extended to me. The veil has been removed.

… but whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Do you know Him? Have you let Him speak His Word over your heart today? What is He saying to you? I’d love to hear what you are learning. Feel free to post a phrase or maybe a Scripture that’s been heavy on your heart as a way of fulfilling our calling to…

… encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called ‘Today,’ so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. (Hebrews 3:13)
