31 Days to His Heart :: Jesus is His Heart Revealed {Day #10}

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!


There is only One who brought His heart near from all time for all time…let’s Behold

Jeremiah 31:20

Is Ephraim my dear son?
Is he my darling child?
For as often as I speak against him,
   I do remember him still.
Therefore my heart yearns for him;
   I will surely have mercy on him,
         declares the LORD.

John 1: 14, 18

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth…

No one has ever seen God;the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.

Galatians 4:4-6

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,  to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!"


As we have looked at Psalm 103 and the heart of God, in His love, holiness, longing for relationship, goodness, mercy, grace, works, we stand with the psalmist declaring all he knows Him to be.  However, in the spirit there is an element of prophecy because, for the psalmist, relationship with God is mediated by a priest and contains sacrifice and ritual and then more with all hope on the future promise of full redemption.

All the while, this heart of God, yearns, yearns, for a people upon whom to manifest His particular mercy in its fullness, without barrier in relationship and so in the fullness of time He reveals this heart in flesh.

His only Son, Jesus, who from eternity past existing as YAHWEH, God eternal, would come to dwell among all of the unholy, untouchable, stench-filled, wayward, stubborn, proud, brokenness of humanity.  To live with each breath the infinite depths of the Father’s heart.

And how this heart soars to contemplate Him.  The clarity of heart and soul desire met in the full revelation of Redemption; Jesus Christ.  He who leaves the infinite, intimate, fellowship of the Godhead and travels the incomprehensible lengths of the eternal heavens to dwell in time and space SO THAT the triune God’s heart desire might be fulfilled.

This, this is the stuff of every great story, romance, epic novel, with infinitely better effect upon the one who beholds, believes, embraces and owns…

My eternal effect, your eternal effect, is forever relationship with Him—fully enveloped in His heart, joy-studded bliss, forever and ever and ever…

Praying His Heart

Oh Precious Lord, Yahweh, One yet Three.  This heart lays low in the revelation, the full revelation, of Your heart.  I long for the capacity to understand how amazing you are…and to live that knowledge with every breath.  Bring me closer to the revelation of Your heart; the King of Redemption; Jesus Christ.  May I draw near as He shows me Abba Father love and in the drawing near live you in this world.  In the matchless Name above Every Name, Jesus Your Son, Amen.
