31 Days to His Heart :: His Heart is for Relationship {Day #4}

31 Days Button

Thank you for visiting Fan the Flame!

I’m humbly treading the hallowed ground of the Heart of God for the 31 days of October.  First we look deep into the Beauty of His heart, shown through God the Father and His Son Jesus, then, we peer into the fragile and yet powerful role of our own hearts as we seek His and learn to live it in this world.  To read the entire series go {here} 31 Days to His Heart.

May YOU be blessed with a touch of Him TODAY…He who desires and is Fully Worthy of ALL of our hearts!

 

Before we begin, let’s wonder anew at His Heart FOR Relationship with US…

Psalm 103 : 11-13, 17

For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
   so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
   so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
As a father shows compassion to his children,
   so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him
.

But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
   and his righteousness to children’s children
,

We talked in Day #2 about the Heart of God as full of Everlasting Love.  And while, for me, just the  Reality of This God being of Everlasting Love, is enough to light the fire of worship within, I know, at the same time, there is MORE.  More, infinitely more, to comprehend of this God Whose Heart Stuff is divinely dense, infinitely overflowing, in Love.

So, what MORE is there?  I think a key step further into this Love is to realize that it is meant for Relationship.  Furthermore, I think it is impossible to be understood even on the most shallow level outside of Relationship. And that is a plan Grand Enough ONLY to be borne from the very seat of affection of God.

It is as if He were saying,

Although I am High and Lifted Up, Beyond Knowing and Infinitely, Immeasurably Holy, Come.  Come to my Heart.

I am asking you to come because only here can you know Me as I intend.  I ask you to ‘fear me’, recognizing that I am God Alone, and to commit your whole self to Me Alone as the God that you worship.

But, it is not, as the distant hard-hearted say, because I am a Power-Hungry, Egocentric, Worship-Demanding God.  These very sentiments belie the reality of those who do not know Me.

However, to ‘fear me’ and to bow low before Me as the Only Holy One worthy of worship and Able for all your needs, swings wide open the path of truly knowing Me, which at My Very Heart of Hearts is Love.

I do not blindly give away forgiveness or have a love to the Heavens that will cover all that I hate about a world gone wrong, for that would not really be love.

It is true that I offer My Love to the whole world, but it is not possessed unless a heart surrenders to Me, The Great ‘I AM’.

To call My Love universal or without measure for every person without regard to their heart response to me denies My Nature and the Great Mystery that Only I can possess.

I offer My Love in Relationship Alone.  Any other alternative is inconceivable to me as God. 

I don’t ask you to understand it, for you can not.  But, I do ask you to trust that as you begin a relationship with Me all of the promises of my Everlasting Love are yours and I will take you on the greatest adventure of this life and the one to come: the Journey throughout Eternity into My Heart.

If you are at all like me, then, you realize how inadequate you are to understand a journey to His heart.  But, because of the relationship that has begun, I know He is illumining the way and today I am eating the manna {mystery} of a God Who-Doesn’t-Need-Anything-Possesses-Everything-Dwells-in-Eternal-Glory Whose Heart is ultimately to show Who He is, namely His Heart of Everlasting Love in Relationship.

And, WOW!  I am invited by the Great I AM to do just that, and so are you!!!!!!!!!!  That sparks fireworks of joy in this humble heart, how about you?

Praying His Heart

Oh Great God, I stand in awe of You.  Awe and yet the mystery awaits as You bid me ‘Come’.  Thank You!  Thank You!  For eternity I thank You that Your heart IS FOR RELATIONSHIP!  Only You could define Everlasting Love like this and I ask You to lead me ever deeper, closer, nearer, dearer to this Heart of Divine Mystery bound in Love. 

Amen
