Inner Truth~The Effective Messenger
Psalm 119:73 says, “Your hands have made me and fashioned me; give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments.”
There is no one else like you. The population of the world in 2013 was 7.125 billion. That is a staggering number to me, considering that NO two people are alike. Fingerprints are used to identify us because each is unique in its markings.
Unique means being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else. We are not only unique in our design, but in our relationship with the Lord as well. Psalm 8 was written by David. He asks a question in verses 3-4. “When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?”
Your relationship with the Lord is individual. It is not a duplication. The Lord relates with you through your spiritual individuality. He meets you where you are. He will never put expectations on you because He knows your heart. He knows everything about you from before your conception until you take your last breath.
Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you…” Psalm 139:1-6 are David’s words about the Lord’s personal knowledge of us. He knows when we sit down and rise up, He understands every thought, He is acquainted with all our ways, He knows our words before we speak them, and His hand is always on us. Then verses 17-18 say, “How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand.”
You may ask, “Why would the Holy Lord want a relationship with sinful me?” He redeemed you for His own. It is a great wonder for you to contemplate. He can create anything He wants, yet He specifically created you to relate to Him personally.
Colossians 1:16 says that all things were created through Him and for Him. Connect that with Psalm 65:4. It says, “Blessed is the man You choose, and cause to approach You, that he may dwell in Your courts…” Please read Hosea 11:4. Personalized it is saying that He drew you with His cords of love, and bound you to Himself forever!
Ephesians 1:4 says, “Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.” Your relationship with the Lord was divinely orchestrated. Verse 11 says, “In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will.”
Everything in your relationship with the Lord is purposeful. He loves you and desires intimate communion with you. He longs to reveal Himself to you through His word. 1 Corinthians 2:9 says that our eyes have not seen, nor our ears heard, nor our heart has comprehended the things that are prepared for those who love Him. Verse 10 Amplified says, “Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the (Holy) Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God (the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny).”
Psalm 25:14 Amplified says, “The secret (of the sweet, satisfying companionship) of the Lord have they who fear (revere and worship) Him, and He will show them His covenant and reveal to them its (deep, inner) meaning.” The Lord so desires you to enter into a deeper place of intimacy with Him. He is wooing you and drawing you to Himself that He may share His heart with you. There is nothing to compare on this earth with intimate Heart-to-heart communion with Him.
I like to read Song of Solomon 2:14 like this as my heart’s response to the Lord’s wooing. “O my Dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the cliff, let me see Your face, let me hear Your voice; for Your voice is sweet, and Your face is lovely.”
The Lord only shares His heart with His redeemed ones. You are His chosen one, bought with the precious spilled blood of the Lord Jesus. It is amazingly wonderful that He would want us for fellowship. He created us with hearts that can respond.
Psalm 73:25 says, “Whom have I in heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.” May this be your confession. May the Lord draw you deeper into intimate communion, that you may drink of the nectar of His love and be satisfied in Him.
Jeremiah 31:14 says, “I will satiate (fill to the full) the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the Lord.” Psalm 107:9 says, “For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.”
