There is an endless cacophony of noise and voices entering our minds and hearts on a daily basis influencing us. Much of that is out of our control. But what if we deliberately chose to sit and hear from God himself.
My spirit has been yearning to enter into an even deeper intimacy with Jesus. I want to hear more of what His Spirit wants to share. But I know I’ll need to do some specific things for our relationship to flourish. It’s going to take time, focus and surrender. And I know I will have to sacrifice some things but what I expect to get in return will be worth the sacrifice.
When our spirit is silent and expectant our hearts are shaken to life. Sometimes I stretch forth my physical hands and sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I get on my knees and sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I pace around the room and sometimes I just stand still. It’s more a posture of the heart that God notices. He’s looking for someone that’s humbled in His presence, ready to listen and receive rather than quick to speak.
This intimacy is still such a mystery to me. And I believe it’s hard for some because it requires us to let go and trust.
But I truly believe the Spirit of God wants to whisper secrets from the heart of Jesus. On New Year’s Eve I received a gentle whisper that had my heart fluttering and my imagination dancing. It gave me a sneak peek of what we can expect from a deeper relationship with Jesus.
A Midnight Whisper from the Spirit
Wedding bells are ringing, wooing the bride of Christ.
At the midnight hour her heart is being prepared.
She will meet Him at dawn to begin a divine romance.
He will sweep her off her feet into the heavenlies.
Her first dance of true love with the Father will have the angels in awe.
The Son will then take His bride and show her His mansions.
Each day they will discover a hidden treasure together.
They will open new doors together;
enter into deeper rooms of revelations.
His heart will unlock rooms holding mysteries so deep,
her breath will be taken away.
There will be a library of books filled with words of love for His bride.
They will eat fruit baskets of grace and truth.
And He will take her to the throne room of mercy – a room of never-ending love and intimacy.
These are a couple of books I recommend that aided my intimacy journey with Jesus:
