Unquestionable You Are the Lord; You are the Living God. Gracious God Everlasting King, how Wonderful You Are; Too awesome to behold. Indeed You are the Alpha and Omega; the Beginning and the End. We bow down before You, we worship You Father, we adore Thee.

Father, come and take Your place in this place, in my heart come and take Your place. The most befitting place for my King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Ancient of days, Lord come and take Your place right in my heart.

How my soul longed for You, Dear Lord, how my soul thirsty for you, O! Lord, how my soul pant after You as the deer pant after the waters. Precious God, I desire You more than gold; more than finest sliver. Come and take Your place in my heart and make it an abode for You; only for You Lord

Beloved, are you in that quest with me? Come, let us go and search our Lord in the pages of His Word and our thirsty soul will be satisfy:

“I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, that ye tell him, that I am sick of love.” Song 5:8

Such is the language of the believer panting after present fellowship with Jesus, he is sick for his Lord. Gracious souls are never perfectly at ease except they are in a state of nearness to Christ; for when they are away from Him they lose their peace.

The nearer to Him, the nearer to the perfect calm of heaven; the nearer to Him, the fuller the heart is, not only of peace, but of life, and vigour, and joy, for these all depend on constant intercourse with Jesus. What the sun is to the day, what the moon is to the night, what the dew is to the flower, such is Jesus Christ to us.

What bread is to the hungry, clothing to the naked, the shadow of a great rock to the traveller in a weary land, such is Jesus Christ to us; and, therefore, if we are not consciously one with Him, little marvel if our spirit cries in the words of the Song, “I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, tell Him that I am sick of love.”

This earnest longing after Jesus has a blessing attending it: “Blessed are they that do hunger and thirst after righteousness”; and therefore, supremely blessed are they who thirst after the Righteous One. Blessed is that hunger, since it comes from God: if I may not have the full-blown blessedness of being filled, I would seek the same blessedness in its sweet bud-pining in emptiness and eagerness till I am filled with Christ.

If I may not feed on Jesus, it shall be next door to heaven to hunger and thirst after Him. There is a hallowedness about that hunger, since it sparkles among the beatitudes of our Lord. But the blessing involves a promise. Such hungry ones “shall be filled” with what they are desiring.

If Christ thus causes us to long after Himself, He will certainly satisfy those longings; and when He does come to us, as come He will, oh, how sweet it will be!

Sweeter than honeycomb to my heart, He is my everlasting joy (Isa 61:7). A joyful heart the Word of God said is a medicine (Prov 17:22). Therefore if you want a merry heart, call on Jesus. If you want to stay healthy feed on Jesus. No one will access the throne with a heavy heart. When Jesus is in the center of it all, the difference is always unmistakable. It will so glaring Who is at the hem of affairs. When Jesus is your heartbeat, the Word is always at a glance. Come let us search our scripture for His riches and glory that knows no bound. Alleluia somebody!

“The unsearchable riches of Christ.” Ephesians 3:8

My Master has riches beyond the count of arithmetic, the measurement of reason, the dream of imagination, or the eloquence of words. They are unsearchable! You may look, and study, and weigh, but Jesus is a greater Saviour than you think Him to be when your thoughts are at the greatest.

 My Lord is more ready to pardon than you to sin, more able to forgive than you to transgress. My Master is more willing to supply your wants than you are to confess them. Never tolerate low thoughts of my Lord Jesus. When you put the crown on His head, you will only crown Him with silver when He deserves gold.

My Master has riches of happiness to bestow upon you now. He can make you to lie down in green pastures, and lead you beside still waters. There is no music like the music of His pipe, when He is the Shepherd and you are the sheep, and you lie down at His feet. There is no love like His, neither earth nor heaven can match it. To know Christ and to be found in Him—oh! this is life, this is joy, this is marrow and fatness, wine on the lees well refined.

My Master does not treat His servants churlishly; He gives to them as a king giveth to a king; He gives them two heavens—a heaven below in serving Him here, and a heaven above in delighting in Him for ever.

His unsearchable riches will be best known in eternity. He will give you on the way to heaven all you need; your place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks, your bread shall be given you, and your waters shall be sure; but it is there, THERE, where you shall hear the song of them that triumph, the shout of them that feast, and shall have a face-to-face view of the glorious and beloved One (Jn 12:26).

The unsearchable riches of Christ! This is the tune for the minstrels of earth, and the song for the harpers of heaven. Lord, teach us more and more of Jesus, and we will tell out the good news to others.

More of Jesus, more of Him to my hungry soul! O how beautiful is the feet of them that bears the gospel (Rom 10:15) and the word of God endureth forever and that is the gospel we preach (1 Pet 1:25).

They that look upon Him are lightened (Ps 34:5)

Remain blessed in the Lord.
