Word of Encouragement - He's Better than We've Ever Imagined
A Word of Encouragement - He's Better Than We've Ever Imagined!
I woke up this morning with a line from a song on my heart, “There’s nothing better than you.”
I feel in this season of “isolation” that the Lord would have us experience the reality that there really is nothing better than knowing Him. “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I’d rather be a doorkeeper in the house of the Lord than dwell in the tents of the wicked.” Ps. 84:10
I feel Him reminding us that because of the blood of Jesus we have direct access not just to the courts of the Lord but into the Holy of Holies. So come be immersed in the secret place in this time. There’s an invitation to know the glory and satisfaction of His presence and experience total fulfilment in Him. There’s nothing better than knowing God!
Recently I feel it’s been difficult for some to press into devotion with the Father. Growing up my Dad used to say that there are times when our quiet times with the Lord are a discipline until they become a delight. I encourage you, fight for the place of intimacy with the Father. Even if it feels difficult or that you’re being pulled in other directions, stay the course in this season and you’ll be amazed at what He’ll pour out and know the joy and ease of His presence. I hear His encouragement, “I have so much for you. Everything pertaining to life and Godliness is found in me.”
“I want you to experience the reality of who I am in this season. I truly am the only one who can satisfy the deepest needs of your heart. Draw near to me and I will draw near to you (James 4:8). I want to envelop and invade every area of your heart and life. Don’t leave any space vacant. I want to take up residence in every room, every door way and hallway of your heart. Make your heart my home and I will become very comfortable very quickly! You will experientially know me in ways you have longed for and find contentment that the world will never be able to give. Come find your satisfaction in me. I am your exceedingly great reward” (Gen. 15:1).
