Quiet Time With Jesus – Relationship

Wednesday, 5 June 2019 

God is my Creator. He is my Father, Friend, Counsellor, Comforter, Guide, Teacher, Provider, Healer… I am drawn to Him. He is my King, my Lord, my Master… I stand in awe of Him. He is my Shelter, my Shield, my Refuge and my Fortress… I run to Him, I am safe. He is my Hiding Place... I rest in Him, I find peace. He is my Strength… He is my everything.

Our God is pure and holy. Habakkuk says that God's eyes are too pure to look on evil and He cannot tolerate wrong. (Habakkuk 1:13) God turned His eyes away when Jesus bore our sins on the cross. “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34) – these are the most painful words ever heard on earth. But it is written in the book of Hebrews: Jesus said, “Here I am, I have come to do Your Will." And by that Will we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. (Hebrews 10:9-10) Praise the Lord!

I love to look at the sun but every time I try, I have to turn my eyes away. Likewise, I long to see God's face but I am not fit to behold His glory. Yet God allows us to have a glimpse of His beauty… Have you watched the sun rise over the horizon? As I imagine, I remember a song written by an eight-year-old boy. 

I will come into Your Presence O Lord / I will come into Your Presence O Lord

And fall deeper in love with You / I’m falling deeper in love with You

Your love is higher than the mountains / Your love is deeper than the oceans

And the brightness of Your glory dazzles me / Much brighter than the brightest flame I see

You’ve won my heart, You’ve captured me / You’ve won my heart, You’ve captured me

O Lord Your glory / Shines brighter than ever / O Lord Your glory / Grows stronger and stronger

O Lord Your glory / Shines brighter than ever / O Lord Your glory / Grows stronger and stronger

I’m falling deeper in love with You / I’m falling deeper in love with You


My Prayer:

O Lord, let Your beauty be visible to us... 

Finding Beauty (a poem by Grace E. Easley)

I’m forever finding beauty all about me everywhere, 

And it reaches out to touch me when I am the least aware.

Standing on the edge of gladness, I reflect each different shade,

And I marvel at the richness every vibrant tone has made.

Blending in the lights and shadows, I’ve discovered I can see,

Just beyond the range of vision, normally assigned to me.

Reaching up through outer limits, using goodness for a stair,

I am full of breathless wonder… Finding BEAUTY EVERYWHERE!

Thank You Lord!
