Dear Friend, please take the time to read and meditate on how good our Lord is. He does long to be gracious to you and love you with the everlasting love. He is waiting for you to take the first step and show Him that He really is first. He is not far away, He is right there with you. Love Him with all of your heart.
This HTBB lesson helped me really see a bit of the Lord's heart and nature. He wants to bless me as I search wholeheartedly for Him. I am required and seek to learn to long for Him daily. I must be restored for Him to do anything in my life whether I am restored or not.
It is unbelievable and breathtaking at the same time that our Lord has directly spoken to us the gift of the Abundant life. He says blessed are those that long for Him. The key is longing for Him more than anything. This principle #1, "Blessings for a Lifetime” and promise will help me through the process of letting go and surrendering it all to Him. He waits for us to do it and be obedient to Him.
Living a humble life and longing for the Lord should help me to really convey the gentleness of the Lord and who He is. I will no doubt, share the blessing of the principle and post Isaiah 30:18 on my cubicle wall for all to see.
I have often struggle thinking that the Lord was far from me and that He really didn't care for me or the hurt I was feeling. The Lord wasn't real to me and if He was I was angry with Him for allowing me to go through the fire by myself. Lord forgive me for depending on others to bring me only the joy You can, forgive me for questioning You and for being angry that You have crushed my spirit. Lord Your love letters to me are in front of me to see and to read and let soak into my heart. Make them real to me.
Let us pray: Lord, first of all I ask that you change me and remove the yuck that may be in my heart. Allow me to be the woman I was supposed to be. Remove any thought of restoration and help me fully focus on you and long for you. Lord we can only come to you if you draw us. I ask that you draw my FH and the OW to you through circumstances or any thing you deem necessary to bring them to you. Give them the thirst for you and the knowledge so they will not perish. Lord change us all to be the people and church you need us to be.
Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on High to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; how blessed are all those who long for Him. Isaiah 30:18
Just reading the words makes me see the very nature of my Lord. How wonderful He is.
