Return to your First Love!
Revelation 2:4: Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
That is the theme for the New Year! Take the Time to read Revelation the 2nd chapter.
For the next few Months; we are going to Fall In Love with Jesus, all over again. Remember, how you could not wait to get in his Presence. I know that we are in His presence always, I mean when you felt He was there just for you? Do you remember? How everything you looked at or experienced, you would relate it to something Spiritual? Remember the first time that you realized HE was speaking directly to you? YOU heard Him and you felt in YOUR Heart, He was talking to you? Remember the First time that He woke you up at 3:00 in the Morning; to talk? Remember the first time that you felt your feet moving and you were not doing it? Remember when he choreographed a signature dance just for you? Remember when He first made a way for You, when you thought it was impossible? Let’s (us) return to our First Love!
Remember, the first time you cried and could not figure out why? I love the Lord. The Word Of God excites me! Maybe it is just me. I believe that we should all have an intimate relationship with Him!
This is between you and God, He is as close as you want him or as far away as you push Him.
All of these scandals, sins, unfaithfulness, partial commitments could be stopped, If we just Fall Back In Love With Him. When you have souled out, do you not submit, committ and surrender everything to Him? Maybe you’ve not experienced these things for yourself? I invite you to get closer to the Lord. Give Him Total control in your Life. I already have started.
Am I saying I have attained or arrived? No! I am saying:
John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
The Most important thing to him is Souls. Think about all he has gone through for you and me. He knew that we were going to Sin. He knew we would mess up, yet he chose to love us anyway.
Romans 5:8: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
My whole purpose; in doing this is to point you to Christ.
John 6:44: No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
I believe it is time to gather the Harvest. Won’t you please do what you can to help?
Proverb:11:30: The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
I am yet after all these years, still having a great deal of these experiences. Sometimes, I have to go back and get another touch. Keep your relationship fresh! You will acquire problems/ issues be of good courage!
John 16:33: These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
NOTE: The Red is used to note what is scripture! I would not want anyone to think otherwise. The blue is usually me.
Proverb:4:7: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Philippians 4:6: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
We are all at different levels. Don’t ever assume anything!
The Lord and I spent time together this morning as usuall, It was beautiful. How did you spend your morning?
2/28/11 Note: God It was you all along, I’ve fell in Love with you all over again. Thank you for loving me!
4/25/11 When I began this; I had no idea, what would take place in my own life! I have returned to the Lord, whole heartedly. We can submit to the Lord and not commit everything to Him! My suggestion. It is all or nothing. Don’t think that YOU OR I, can do anything apart from God. God knows everything that we need; even our personal needs and desires. Does God know that I desire a Husband? That He has for me? Yes, now, I can wait on the Lord and not try to take matters into my own hands! Don’t even think about trying it on your own! Please take my advice been there done that!
I believe that there is a way to wait on the Lord. I contnue to pray. Never Stop. I fast and Pray, I listen to the Lord. God is always speaking; even if it is through His Word, the Bible. In the beginning of our Relationship, I ask the Lord to speak to me and for me to know that it was Him. God will answer your prayers! Ask Him and then wait to hear from Him.
In All these years; God has never spoken anything to me that has not been backed up by HIS WORD! There were things that the Lord spoke to me that I didn’t realize that it was in His Word, that started me on a road to discover Bible Dictionaries, Concordances, etc.
Matthew 5:6: Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
2 Peter 1:20: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
I do believe that we need the Spirit of God!
1 Corinthians 2:14: But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
God, I love you! I don’t love anyone or anything more than I love you! With God and only with God is this possible! I still have a Hunger for God’s Word! We never outgrow our need for the Lord, if you have, check yourself; it could be pride!
8/11/11- I wrote this some time ago, God I yet love you; thank you for loving me; leading me and directing me!
