True Treasure is Before Us
This morning our Lord has been emphasizing the need of our pursuit of Him. Emphasizing that there is always more, more of Him, His nature and His attributes.
We must taste and see of His goodness, faithfulness, and the Truth of His Love.
What He brought to my heart was the Shulamite, and how she tasted the kings love, knew of his ways and once she had experienced this, she was wrecked by him and his love. She then sought, asked and found him. And as she did she was completely surrendered, open, and responsive to his love.
This is but a shadow of how we are to experience the width, depth, highests and breadths of His Love. Remembering Love is His Nature, so to know Love is to know Christ and Him crucified. Paul’s prayer is to be our prayer. We must come to know our Lord, and with each day experiencing His beauty unfolding like a banquet table before us.
“That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:16~19
Our Lord desires to have our hearts burning for Him, He is creating within us this passion, desire, and intensity to ask, seek and knock on the door of His heart, and to keep doing so. To taste and keep tasting the beauty of His presence, and the depths of His Love.
This is true living, walking into Him and His Love each and every day, learning to know Him, and to learn His ways, eating and drinking in Spirit and Truth. This is the transformation that moves us from darkness into His Light. The old order dying, and the Newness of His Life being experienced within us.
Everything we could ever possibly need pertaining to Life is open before us. It is in His Faith that we explore this Treasure, and dine at the table He sets before each of us. In this we learn to trust in our Lord, His true Love develops this beautiful condition of trust. We learn to trust when we know His True Love.
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5, 6
Peter saw this, and experienced this radical transformation in his life. Peter moved from speaking to knowing, his life is one for us to learn from. Peter became overwhelmed by the Nature of our Lord.
2 Peter 1:3~8
“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
May we open our hearts before our Lord, seeking Him and His perfect Nature to overtake our flawed nature. To become in Spirit and Truth a New Creation in Christ.
