Are YOU Losing Touch With God?
As strange as it may sound, our greatest enemy, many times, is knowledge of God.
That is, knowing things about God, but without the reality of experiencing those things as daily Living realities in ourselves and in our lives.
Relationship can soon become no more than stale religion, when our focus is displaced from real experience with Christ, to mere knowledge about the things we have come to know and come to experience in Him.
There are today many who know relationship with God, and who can tell you all about it, but who themselves no longer live in the real reality of the experience of truly KNOWING the Lord Personally in an intimate walk.
They once did, but somewhere along the way experience transitioned into knowledge, and the reality of that intimacy was lost and sacrificed on the altar of a mere knowledge of the things pertaining to God.
If we could only realise this fact and reality in our hearts again, of which Amee so beautifully reminds us, and begin every day in intimacy with Jesus, and place Him above and before any task that may await us each day.
If we could make Him the One Person without Whom we cannot afford to begin our day, knowing that we will need Him to lead us in and through each day, we will again discover the true essence of intimacy with Him, and how important He truly is in our lives.
We will again find the balance that we so desperately need to regain – knowing that ultimately our greatest achievement in life is living in Union with Him, being in service to Him, and daily being led by His Presence within!
Know The LORD!
We are entering seasons where it will become imperative for our survival to KNOW THE LORD.
Not our Bibles, not lukewarm religion. Not church.
But to KNOW HIM in the true reality of Personal interaction, Revelation and living in harmony with His Spirit in the realm of His Life-Presence.
The time is at hand where your survival in a world overflowing with hatred and violence will depend upon God and His Living Presence, Favor, guidance and Grace.
Have your lamps trimmed and your vessels full!
