Romans 8:27 Don’t you know that He who pursues and explores the human heart intimately knows the Spirit’s mind because He pleads to God for His saints to align their lives with the will of God?
My Miraculous Musings: What really jumped out of this verse today to me was our Triune God and His plan for our lives. Three Persons, One God All For Me. It is hard for my finite mind to grasp that, so I clasp it as much as I can in faith, I grasp the miraculous musing I am receiving today from The Holy Spirit, that Jesus is the ONE who is pursuing us, exploring our hearts and leading us to an exchange of our wills for The Father God’s Sovereign Will. Jesus knows what is in the Holy Spirit’s mind for us, He intercedes for us to the Father God, for whatever is the purposes of the Holy Spirit, whatever He has in mind for us today, whatever The Father God’s purposes in play for our lives right now, that we will step into them and align ourselves with the Father God’s will for us, that we will step out of our plans, our ways, our wants and become Wholly-Holy God’s, in Holy Alignment with Him, leaning into His Kingdom’s Sovereign Sway.
MORE of me chasing after God to build His Kingdom, less of me chasing after my contentment in this world, trying and working desperately to advance me, my title, my position, my plans and dreams for me. What am I pursuing? Are they things that I want in this world where I don’t even belong, a world I will be leaving and not taking anything I have strived to accomplish or stockpile with me? Jesus, More Of You, Less Of Me! Let It Be So! John 3: 30 He must increase, but I must decrease. He must grow more prominent; I must grow less so. Amplified Bible
John answered, “It’s not possible for a person to succeed—I’m talking about eternal success—without heaven’s help. You yourselves were there when I made it public that I was not the Messiah but simply the one sent ahead of him to get things ready. The one who gets the bride is, by definition, the bridegroom. And the bridegroom’s friend, his ‘best man’—that’s me—in place at his side where he can hear every word, is genuinely happy. How could he be jealous when he knows that the wedding is finished and the marriage is off to a good start? “That’s why my cup is running over. This is the assigned moment for him to move into the center, while I slip off to the sidelines. John 3:27-30 The Message (MSG) Copyright © 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 2000, 2001, 2002 by Eugene H.

Surrendering my will, submitting my life wholly-holy to God won’t look like what I want it too. It is not a path I would naturally take. The Triune God working out our salvation is what I saw in Romans 8:27 and it is way too cool! If I submit my will to God and become willessly submitted to all HE is, to His Kingdom 1st, then I will make an eternal mark on my life path in ways I could not even begin to hope for or imagine.
There are two paths before you; you may take only one path. One doorway is narrow. And one door is wide. Go through the narrow door. For the wide door leads to a wide path, and the wide path is broad; the wide, broad path is easy, and the wide, broad, easy path has many, many people on it; but the wide, broad, easy, crowded path leads to death. 14 Now then that narrow door leads to a narrow road that in turn leads to life. It is hard to find that road. Not many people manage it. Matthew 7:13-14 The Voice Copyright © 2012 Thomas Nelson, Inc. The Voice™ translation
It is the narrow path that leads me to live my life with a miraculous edge that leaves a living legacy, which advances the Kingdom of God. Will I naturally choose this way, no, I won’t, because my heart is deceitfully bent towards impishness, and that is why Jesus, who knows the plans and purposes that the Holy Spirit has in mind for me today, He intercedes for me to the Father God, praying that my will would be breached, and my human nature transformed in the Kingdom of God Way!
It is Jesus, interceding for me that will make an eternal exchange possible, the Infinite heart desire of The Father God, exchanged for my finite plans and dreams that are actively clinging to my human expectations. I have a life lived out from my comfortable worldly viewpoint. Jesus hopes that the heart of the King of the Kingdom of God, will completely permeate me through the influence of His Holy Spirit living in me and saturating my soul with the heart passion of my Father God, which is that all men would be saved, delivered, healed and have a forever future and a hope in HIS Kingdom. This begins with me surrendered, on my knees before Awe-GOD exchanging my human condition for His life, way truth and taking up His cross and following after HIM.

It is The Father God’s hope that I would exchange a worldly viewpoint for a Kingdom perspective that shakes me out my comfort zone, digging my life roots deeply in His Kingdom. Jesus leads me on a faith adventure, a step by step followship of the Holy Spirit, a leaving of my plans, expectations and worldly dreams and a leaning into the Sovereign Will of the Father God. I want to exchange, my plans, hopes and dreams for God’s hearts desire!
There Is No Such Sweet Singing As A Song In The Night. Afflictions Cannot Injure When Blended With Submission. Author: Henry Ward Beecher And Author L. B. Cowman
Wholly-Holy Submissive Surrender Of My Will To AWE-God! This won’t look like anything I could ever hope for or begin to imagine! Let it be so! Let the God adventure begin with my wholly-holy submission of the all of my life to Jesus Christ, being His servant warrior 24/7 at his beckon call, all for the advancement of His Kingdom! I simply-significantly want to take the all of what God has designed, shaped me as, gifted me with and make an eternal mark on my life path, leaving a living legacy of the time He has given me here on earth. I want to be in a vital-vertical relationship with God, positioned in wholly-holy submission unto Him and Him alone.
So I say this morning, or I sing this morning this song unto God, my heart bowed before Him in reverence, honor, respect and submission:
“Because Jesus Finished His Task, He Will Help You Finish Yours. Jesus saw the sin problem of humanity and scripted a solution. Just as an author choses the right words to express his story, Jesus is the Word who expressed the story of salvation in His life. Not only is Jesus the Author Of Your Faith, but also He has finished your story. It is not about your ability to finish, Jesus is the Finisher of your faith.”
Author Elmer L. Towns From The Book: 365 Ways To Know God
We may feel alone, but we aren’t. We are surrounded by an army of witnesses. They have run the race of faith and finished well. It is now our turn. Now stay focused on Jesus, who designed and perfected our faith. He endured the cross and ignored the shame of that death because He focused on the joy that was set before Him; and now He is seated beside God on the throne, a place of honor.
