Blessed Redeemer, you are worthy of my praise. I thank You for Your Sovereignty in My life, family and career. You said in Your Word in every situation we should praise You. we therefore, bow before Your throne and we worship You with the twenty-four elders in heaven. Receive all our praise in Jesus Name.
Beloved, are you now at home with the promise of the month as promised us by the Holy Spirit? Do you know that I once used to see those promises as if am not worthy to receive and part take of them, thank God for Holy Spirit that opened my eyes to the truth in the Word of God.
Peradventure, that’s where you are at this point in your life; hear me, do not allow Satan and fear to prevent you from partaking of the promises of God. Go to the bank of “faith”, present it at the counter (prayer) and be ready to receive full payment and go home smiling.
Are coming up to my current level of accepting and standing in the place of “promise” even when you don’t know how it will be? You dare not fear for Your God is Able and every filth in you purge by His Name.
Come the Lord bids you come and He will cleans you and make you whole. He will meet you at the point of your need and you will smile home with victory, if only you will believe. Read further for more understanding of your compassionate Father:
“Rise up my love, my fair one, and come away.” Song 2:10
Lo, I hear the voice of my Beloved! He speaks to me! Fair weather is smiling upon the face of the earth, and He would not have me spiritually asleep while nature is all around me awaking from her winter’s rest. He bids me “Rise up,” and well He may, for I have long enough been lying among the pots of worldliness. He is risen, I am risen in Him, why then should I cleave unto the dust? From lower loves, desires, pursuits, and aspirations, I would rise towards Him.
He calls me by the sweet title of “My love,” and counts me fair; this is a good argument for my rising. If He has thus exalted me, and thinks me thus comely, how can I linger in the tents of Kedar and find congenial associates among the sons of men? He bids me “Come away.” Further and further from everything selfish, grovelling, worldly, sinful, He calls me; yea, from the outwardly religious world which knows Him not, and has no sympathy with the mystery of the higher life, He calls me.
“Come away” has no harsh sound in it to my ear, for what is there to hold me in this wilderness of vanity and sin? O my Lord, would that I could come away, but I am taken among the thorns, and cannot escape from them as I would. I would, if it were possible, have neither eyes, nor ears, nor heart for sin. Thou callest me to Thyself by saying “Come away,” and this is a melodious call indeed. To come to Thee is to come home from exile, to come to land out of the raging storm, to come to rest after long labour, to come to the goal of my desires and the summit of my wishes.
But Lord, how can a stone rise, how can a lump of clay come away from the horrible pit? O raise me, draw me. Thy grace can do it. Send forth Thy Holy Spirit to kindle sacred flames of love in my heart, and I will continue to rise until I leave life and time behind me, and indeed come away.
Thank You Father, You are a great God in lives of your beloved. Thank you for enabling me to experience you deeper and more in Jesus Name.
“If any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him.” Revelation 3:20
What is your desire this day? Is it set upon heavenly things? Do you long to enjoy the high doctrine of eternal love? Do you desire liberty in very close communion with God? Do you aspire to know the heights, and depths, and lengths, and breadths? Then you must draw ear to Jesus; you must get a clear sight of Him in His preciousness and completeness: you must view Him in His work, in His offices, in His person.
He who understands Christ, receives an anointing from the Holy One, by which He knows all things. Christ is the great master-key of all the chambers of God: there is no treasure-house of God which will not open and yield up all its wealth to the soul that lives near to Jesus. Are you saying, “O that He would dwell in my bosom”? “Would that He would make my heart His dwelling-place for ever”?
Open the door, beloved, and He will come into your souls. He has long been knocking, and all with this object, that He may sup with you, and you with Him. He sups with you because you find the house or the heart, and you with Him because He brings the provision. He could not sup with you if it were not in your heart, you finding the house; nor could you sup with Him, for you have a bare cupboard, if He did not bring provision with Him.
Fling wide, then, the portals of your soul. He will come with that love which you long to feel; He will come with that joy into which you cannot work your poor depressed spirit; He will bring the peace which now you have not; He will come with His flagons of wine and sweet apples of love, and cheer you till you have no other sickness but that of “love o’erpowering, love divine.” Only open the door to Him, drive out His enemies, give Him the keys of your heart, and He will dwell there for ever.
Oh, wondrous love, that brings such a guest to dwell in such a heart! Is that your heart desire? Can you open your heart for Him to come in and sup with you, do not harden it? “Divine Enthronement” has conditions attach to it, which is one of this. “Open your heart when you hear His knock, do not harden your heart”.
Finally, if you have not receive Christ into your heart, please click here to do it now so that you will partake of all His promises. God bless you.
Till we come your way again next week,
Remain blessed in the Lord.
