The Passionate Pursuit Part 2
With every touch of the Spirit there’s more hunger, passion and desperation to know Him more intimately. I can't explain what is stirring within my soul right now. I feel like I'm so far from where I need to be and there's so much more I desire, deeper depths of His mercy and love that I have not even begun to tap into. I need to encounter His power in such a way that it can be manifested in and through me to touch and change lives.
I'm so hungry! I pray that this hunger that's within me would be contagious and that you would begin to realize your potential with Jesus as you press into the Secret Place. The place of intimacy that few have gone before.
I can't write about anything else right now because this is all that is stirring within me! I feel as though I am standing at a precipice of a greater level of His Glory and I must get to the other side. It’s all I can think about…I live, breathe and desire Jesus! A deeper relationship, where His voice is clearer and His love overwhelms! This passion is devastating, my pursuit of Him must increase, I must go deeper! The closer I get, the further I feel. Oh, it’s not because I don’t feel His presence, but it’s because the passion burns hotter and my need for Him becomes more evident as my desperation increases. As you begin to increase your pursuit of Him, you’ll realize that the pleasures of this life pale in comparison to the infinite delight that is found in the Secret Place of His presence!
Get hungry! Your relationship with Him can not be limited to 1 or 2 church meetings a week. That's not enough to experience intimacy with anyone. You must chase after Him daily, hourly and continually. As you begin to experience His presence and get a little glimpse of His glory… oh yeah, you'll get hungry too!! If you don't know where to begin, start by ingesting the sweet honey of His Word. Read your Bible and invite Him to inhabit your praise, as you lift up His name with your worship and adoration.
Psalm 86:11-13 (TPT) Teach me more about you, how you work and how you move, so that I can walk onward in your truth until everything within me brings honor to your name. With all my heart and passion I will thank you, my God! I will give glory to your name, always and forever! You love me so much and you placed your greatness upon me.You rescued me from the deepest place of darkness, and you have delivered me from a certain death.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (TPT) Let joy be your continual feast. Make your life a prayer. And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.
Psalm 119:103 (KJV) How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Psalm 91:1-2,4,9-10,14-16 (NKJV) He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.” He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge;His truth shall be your shield and buckler. Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;I will set him on high, because he has known My name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble;I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.”
