Ohhh how beautiful is His name! How wonderful is He! My heart swells and burns within me at the thought of who He is. It’s almost unbearable.
Praise Him! Praise Him! Praise the living God! He is so worthy! So beyond worthiness. He’s such a sweet, beautiful,
Song of Songs 5:16
“His mouth is most sweet: yea, he isaltogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”
1 Peter 1:8
“Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:”
Jesus Christ sets the soul free. He unlocks the bondage we’re enslaved to in this world and gives us t r u e life. There is no life apart from Jesus. You may think you’re living, but if you don’t have eternal life living inside of you (Jesus), you are dead inside and enslaved to sin and this world.
You may think true freedom is doing whatever you want, but it’s a false deceptive “freedom”. True freedom is to be forgiven and have a reconciled, close and intimate relationship with the God who made your soul. There is no freedom greater than this. He is the way to eternal life. It’s only through Jesus, nobody and nothing else. He is the door, all who enter will find true life.
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
“And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
“And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” Galatians 4:6.
I’m meditating on this right now. One day a little while ago, I was weary and exhausted. So I began listening to worship music.
I needed my love and I needed to rest and be filled by Him. So I put on worship music and just got lost in the beautiful worshipful words to Jesus. And I could physically feel my heart burn as I was saturated in the truth of His beauty and grace as I worshiped Him. I could feel His love just be poured in me and my love for Him and desire for Him just fill me to overflowing. In that moment, nothing else mattered. In that moment, everything about Him and His love was intensified and I could have just melted; only He mattered, and my eyes were fixated on Him. The world washed away, and only He was present.
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24
This is what it is to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. He poured His love into us by His Spirit, and our response is deep heart worship and yearning for Him, and a personal intimate affectionate relationship where we cry out, “Abba, Father!”.
“And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.” Romans 5:5
This deep heart burning worship of our Maker is a testimony that we’re His sons and daughters and have eternal life inside of us. We have eternal life inside of us because we love, we cry out to, and we worship e t e r n a l life Himself.
The most worthy God paid the highest price for our sin-stained soul.
I walk in complete wide-eyed wonder of this God who loves this much. Of this God who is intimately acquainted with me and is so involved in every little thing I do and think and feel. Who cares for me tenderly and protects me passionately. This God who I can’t even begin to comprehend His majesty, that He loves so much that He would experience the most painful execution in human history to save us, have us, keep us, make us His.
I’m in utter awe that I get to know Him. Not just know Him, but k n o w Him. That He loves us humans with a great love. The greatest love. It’s beyond our mind’s ability to fully grasp. It’s just too great.
He’s so majestic, He’s so wonderful.
All I can do is humbly bow low in complete submission, and love Him until I die.
It’s what I want. He’s what I desire.
I can’t believe He’s mine.
There’s not a thing in this world I would choose over Him. I’m His possession.
Surrender to Jesus, and experience the most incredible love, fulfillment, joy, purpose, pleasure, and satisfaction that you can’t even begin to imagine. He is e v e r y t h i n g.
