INTIMACY WITH HIM
Do not feel guilty about taking time to seek My Face; you are simply responding to the tugs of divinity within you. I made you in My image, and I hid heaven in your heart.
Much of this world’s angst is actually a longing for the perfection of heaven. Blatant sin is often a misguided attempt to fill the emptiness created by that longing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so that they search for heaven in hellish ways: excesses and perversions of every kind. However, great sinners can be transformed into exceptional Christians when they turn their passionate appetites toward Me.
My Love and forgiveness satisfy soul-hunger as nothing else can, so it is good that you yearn for more than this world can provide. You were not designed to find total satisfaction in the here-and-now, because you were crafted in My image.
Since heaven is My home, it is your ultimate home too, where all of your longings will be perfectly satisfied. I placed a bit of heavenly matter in your heart so you would seek Me even now for a taste of that eternal reality. Refuse to feel guilty about something that brings Me such pleasure! I delight in your seeking heart.
Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
~ Psalm 105:4
The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
~ 2 Corinthians 4:4
“Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.”
~ Isaiah 55:2
