The Lord put a song on my heart for this Easter Sunday.
This song is prophetic. Prophecy isn’t really about telling the future. Prophecy is really about speaking from the heart of God. That’s what this song is.
All throughout history, the devil has worked to twist people’s ideas of who God is. This song is from God’s heart to your heart because He’s saying that He wants a personal relationship with you. He doesn’t want you to just know in Your head what other people say about Him. He wants you to know Him.
Psalm 25:14 says that God shares his secrets with those who fear Him. The fear of the Lord isn’t to be afraid of Him; it’s to reverence Him and value Him so much that you’re afraid to live without His close fellowship, and you’ll do whatever it takes to have it. I don’t know about you, but I want a relationship with God that is so close that He wants to tell me his secrets. Because you only share your secrets with people who are closest to you.
This weekend we celebrate Jesus’s death and Resurrection. Romans 8:29 says that Jesus was the first born among many brethren. He came so that we could have the same relationship with God that He walked in here on Earth as a human. His death paid the price for the sin that keeps us from Him, and His resurrection gives us the victory over sin. He made us righteous. And Proverbs 3:32 says that God shares his secrets with the righteous.
Throughout the Bible, over and over again, God showed that He was seeking close fellowship with these people that He created. He came down and walked through the garden with Adam and Eve, and He was grieved when they hid from Him. When Adam died, there was Enoch who was willing for God to come and walk with him, and God enjoyed his companionship so much that He whisked Enoch away to heaven. And then God found Noah who would walk with Him. And then God found Abraham who walked with Him and was willing to be the friend of God.
Then God called Abraham’s descendants to be His people, and He called them out of Egypt to meet Him and worship Him. But they as a group rejected the opportunity for that close relationship and said, “Moses you meet Him for us. We’re too afraid”
So then in Isaiah 49:6, God explained, “These physical descendants of Abraham are not enough for Me. I want more people. So My salvation is going to extend to the ends of the Earth, so that anyone from any nation can come to Me and seek Me and be My friend and have a close relationship with Me.”
Jesus came so that you can have that close relationship with God.
He already knows you intimately, but He wants you to know Him intimately in return.
There will come a day when it’s too late. Jesus told the parable of the wedding feast where the king called his servants to call everyone who had been invited, but many were too busy. So He found others – – people who weren’t too busy.
I beg you, seek the Lord while He may be found. Call upon Him while He is near. Treasure your Bible, because it is His word given to you as the tool that the Spirit of God will use to show you who He really is.
He’s more than you think He is. Always more. The discovery of who He is is never-ending.
