This morning I woke up with this thought on my heart: “Open Your Heart Wide To Me, Jesus, Your Bridegroom And My Bride, I Will Fill It”.
2 Corinthians 6:11-13 Dear, dear Corinthians, I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively! The Message
This Is The Day God Made For You. He Is Ready To Fill You To Overflowing. Open Your Heart Wide To Him.
Psalm 81:10 For it was I, Jehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. Only test me! Open your mouth wide and see if I won’t fill it. You will receive every blessing you can use! Living Bible
Fully Face God ~ Heart To HEART
Every day I look to God, I fully face Him as I begin my day. There is not a day that goes by that He has not equipped me for. I know this without a doubt, because my heavenly hindsight says so. I also know in that knowing sense that goes beyond my head to my heart, that I AM His and He has proven to me so many times that if I listen up to Him and step out in followship of His Holy Spirit, this will define my success for this day at hand.
Pursue God First ~ Find True Success
Being faithful to pursuing God makes for a very successful life in that kingdom perspective kind of way. When I measure my success by the cultural standards of this world, I have a frustrating day ahead of me and it always leaves me with disappointment. When I see through the eyes of God’s kingdom perspective, I know when I step out on my life path today in hope and faith, that His Holy Spirit will light my way. God is a Way-Maker like no other.
Psalm 97:11 Light-seeds are planted in the souls of God’s people, Joy-seeds are planted in good heart-soil. The Message
John 8:12 Later, in one of his talks, Jesus said to the people, “I am the Light of the world. So if you follow me, you won’t be stumbling through the darkness, for living light will flood your path.” Living Bible
God Is ~ A Great Way-Maker God
Where I only have that limited worldly viewpoint of seeing in part, God, through His kingdom perspective of seeing in whole is a great Way-Maker. That is where my blind faith comes in, I believe in what I don’t see. I believe that God is good. I believe that His kingdom purposes are always in play in my life, working towards a miraculous solution. I believe that every challenge I face today, the God purpose in it is greater than the challenge itself. My success is not measured by the world, my true success in the face of great challenges is measured by my steadfast faithfulness to God.
1 Corinthians 13:9-12
Gifts of knowledge and prophecy are partial at best, at least for now, 10 but when the perfection and fullness of God’s kingdom arrive, all the parts will end. When I was a child, I spoke, thought, and reasoned in childlike ways as we all do. But when I became a man, I left my childish ways behind. For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things, as when we stare into polished metal. I realize that everything I know is only part of the big picture. But one day, when Jesus arrives, we will see clearly, face-to-face. In that day, I will fully know just as I have been wholly known by God. The Voice
God’s Promises ~ Trump Anxiety
Of course I have anxiety at times, I am only human, especially when facing the big unknown things in my life. I choose every day to put these unfinished things in God’s hands and I remind myself that He always finishes what He starts and He finishes it gloriously so. Anxiety naturally causes us to withhold from others, to ball up and protect our own heart, it causes the opposite reaction of the open heart God wants from us, the generous people He has made us to be. The promise of God always trumps our anxiety. Open your heart wide to God and put all your anxieties and expectations in His Hands and stand with His Promises, raising a standard of righteousness in the midst of your trial, knowing that God will deliver you in due time, purposefully so.
Psalm 112:1-7 Praise the Lord! For all who fear God and trust in him are blessed beyond expression. Yes, happy is the man who delights in doing his commands. His children shall be honored everywhere, for good men’s sons have a special heritage. He himself shall be wealthy, and his good deeds will never be forgotten. When darkness overtakes him, light will come bursting in. He is kind and merciful—and all goes well for the generous man who conducts his business fairly. Such a man will not be overthrown by evil circumstances. God’s constant care of him will make a deep impression on all who see it. He does not fear bad news, nor live in dread of what may happen. For he is settled in his mind that Jehovah will take care of him. Living Bible
Anxiety Is ~ Translated Into God’s Purposes
I feel this anxiety that stirs up my stomach some mornings as I face big challenges and I smile knowing, it is that very temptation to start my day with fear, to start my thinking with lack, that actually pushes me to my knees in surrender to God and causes me to cling to Him as I begin my day. So truthfully, that anxiety formed against my mind, soul and spirit, always ends up being a good thing because as I cling to God, incredible things happen. Positioned heart to HEART with God, in this willessness, miraculous God interventions transpire. These divine interruptions, they are way beyond my ability to make happen, and always leave me in awe of the things God accomplishes, which are more than I could have ever have imagined up or hoped for.
1 Corinthians 10:13 Any temptation you face will be nothing new. But God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can handle. But He always provides a way of escape so that you will be able to endure and keep moving forward. The Voice
Ephesians 3: 20 Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes. Living Bible
Wide Open Hearts ~ Lean Into God’s Sovereign Sway
Lord Jesus, open up our hearts for the discernment and new revelation for this day and increase our giftedness and talents so we will be able to be at the top level for completing our tasks, that you have assigned to us as our divine appointments for this day. I pray You stretch our abilities past the natural to Your supernatural intervention. Father God we cling to You, we open our hearts wide to You right now, knowing You will stretch our abilities and talents past the natural into Your supernatural interpolation. Thank you Holy Spirit for blessing us today and thank you for blessing us MUCH!
1 Kings 8:59-61 “And let these words that I’ve prayed in the presence of God be always right there before him, day and night, so that he’ll do what is right for me, to guarantee justice for his people Israel day after day after day. Then all the people on earth will know God is the true God; there is no other God. And you, your lives must be totally obedient to God, our personal God, following the life path he has cleared, alert and attentive to everything he has made plain this day.” The Message
We Open Our Hearts Wide To You, Jesus, Our Bridegroom. We Ask You To Prepare Us To Endure And Bring You Great Honor.
It is for this reason that I bow my knees before the Father, after whom all families in heaven above and on earth below receive their names, and pray: Father, out of Your honorable and glorious riches, strengthen Your people. Fill their souls with the power of Your Spirit so that through faith the Anointed One will reside in their hearts. May love be the rich soil where their lives take root. May it be the bedrock where their lives are founded so that together with all of Your people they will have the power to understand that the love of the Anointed is infinitely long, wide, high, and deep, surpassing everything anyone previously experienced. God, may Your fullness flood through their entire beings. This is a doxology of praise to the One with power that is beyond understanding. The Voice
