"He is the Word ever writing upon our hearts and minds! He writes new revelation and wonders of who He is on willing hearts!"
A Beautiful Life Before God
A BEAUTIFUL LIFE BEFORE GOD
Romans 12:2 Passion Translation
“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes”
What is perfect? Only God and His Heavenly Kingdom!
What is beautiful? What God has created and what He calls good.
A woman is beautiful but her beauty can be tainted when she is Influenced by a worldly culture and those influences can cause her to no longer have a holy beauty and a holy attraction.
A plant is beautiful in its proper setting – but we can impact an entire region in a negative fashion by transplanting what does not belong there. For instance – where I Iive Japanese knotweed and other invasive not native plants are infiltrating and killing the local flora.
Our hearts can be beautiful and yet at times may not be so beautiful.
What has been transplanted into our hearts that was never meant to be there??
What seeds has the enemy sowed that have grown and born fruit not of
God’s Spirit and Kingdom that are overtaking His Fruit from the Tree of Life?
Praise is beautiful – but only the praise of the One True God. We must not have any ‘god’s hidden under our tents that can bring curses and hindrances upon and into our lives and the lives of those around us.
A Beautiful Life – is that a life without pain? NO!
It is one who lives in the beauty realms of His Love and sees through His Eyes.
We see each person as He does and release His Blessings and Promises.
Our lives are radiant with His Beauty, shining with His Love, sparkling like the Son,
and twinkling like the stars.
There is a beauty in holiness and surrender –
Ruth – at Boaz’s feet and her heart to serve her mother in law Naomi
Mary – her heart response to carry and birth Jesus – be it done unto me
John – Isle of Patmos from posture of intimacy with Jesus
Jesus – beautiful life – our ultimate example to follow
A Satisfying Life –
To wake each day, to seek Him and to be filled again and again.
Even in the mundane chores of life – we live satisfied – for we are never separated from His Heart, His Love, and His Voice.
Satisfaction is NOT what we do, have, own, it is a place in the spirit.
It is learning the secret of Contentment – where you are and yet not camping there – ever venturing deeper into holy satisfaction.
It is knowing we are where we are supposed to be, with the ones we are supposed to be with on His Path of Light and Life.
It is passionately following Him wherever He leads us.
Perfect In His Eyes –
David’s Heart – he sinned, he blew it, but his heart was always to worship and to seek God’s Presence.
Paul had been known as the Saducee of Saducees – but at the end of his life calling himself the chief of sinners – yet he was lost in His Love.
So dangerous is love that NOTHING could hold back the power of that holy love.
As a prisoner he sent out handkerchiefs that released this love and brought many healings and deliverances. This was because he truly a prisoner of Love within the Heart of God.
Recently I was part of an outreach where 19 lives were touched.
HE worked with us – His Presence was in our midst – THAT was success.
To encounter Him – to carry Him – for others to encounter His Love.
Our booth became a chamber of His Heart of mercy, compassion, grace
His tears, His joy, His delight, His dreams to come forth.
We make the way for HIM and get out of the way – as vessels of holy love.
David’s Burning Desire – Psalm 63:1-4 The Message
“God – you’re my God
I can’t get enough of you!
I’ve worked up such a hunger and thirst for God,
travelling across dry and weary deserts.
So here I am in the PLACE OF WORSHIP, EYES OPEN
Drinking in Your strength and glory.
In YOUR GENEROUS LOVE I AM REALLY LIVING AT LAST!
My lips BRIM PRAISES LIKE FOUNTAINS,
I BLESS YOU EVERY TIME I TAKE A BREATH;
MY ARMS WAVE LIKE BANNERS OF PRAISE TO YOU”
Psalm 115:1 Passion Translation
“God, glorify Your Name! Yes, Your name alone be glorified, not ours!
For You are the One who loves us PASSIONATELY, and You are faithful and true”
