God Wants You to Chase Him,
There Is More Treasure Beyond the Door!
I asked The LORD once, ‘If you know what we have need of before we ask, then why do you want us to seek you for the answer?”
He then said to me… “Because I just love the chase!”
The LORD is looking for Lovers!
God loves His lovers and is looking for those who will press into Him, because He loves to spend time with you.
He actually died for this cause! He also said to me one day that the reason He had me praying on a beautiful Saturday was because He just wanted to hear my voice!
I was undone… He loves us to chase Him, because He longs to tell us of all that he has beyond the Door.
Jesus made the way and became the door into the glories of The Kingdom and He wants us to know that there is so much more for those who will seek Him!
“The voice of my beloved! behold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills . My beloved is like a roe or a young hart: behold, he standeth behind our wall, he looks forth at the windows, shewing himself through the lattice.” Song of Solomon 2:8-9.
You see, many times in a vision or a dream that God shows us, He is simply peeking through the lattice and showing a bit of His glory, so that we come after Him and chase Him to hear His Voice.
“My beloved spoke, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.” Song Of Solomon 2:10-11.
Why Doesn’t God Speak Plainly?
Someone asked, “Why does God sometimes speak plainly in my dreams and visions and sometimes, He makes me seek Him?”
And I say to you that, He is looking for people who will keep seeking, keep knocking and keep asking.
So that we will receive of Him, all that He wants us to get out of the encounters when He visits us!
Sometimes He is saying, “Come deeper with Me, because I want to show you more of My Glory!”
You see He wants our undivided attention, because He is our friend and He longs to pour out His heart to you even more than you want to hear what He has to say!
His desire is for your companionship and for this He died so that you could enter into that communion behind the veil!
Sometimes, He simply wants your ear, not unlike when we have something wonderful to share that we have discovered we want to tell to our best friend! It is then that we can’t wait to call them and get their attention!
This is How God longs to pour out His heart to us! He absolutely loves and longs to show us the glories of His Kingdom, if we will stop and listen…
“This is why the Scripture says: Things never discovered or heard of before, things beyond our ability to imagine — these are the many things God has in store for all his lovers.” 1 Corinthians 2:9 (TPT).
God is looking for wide eyed wonder in His Children. He is looking for us to wait daily at His Gates for Him to show us some new thing from His heart!
Like a child waiting for His Father to come from a far country bearing gifts. That is the Kind of expectancy he wants to see in our eyes and He comes to those who expect Him!
“Yes,cry out for comprehension and intercede for insight. For if you keep seeking it like a man would seek for sterling silver, searching in hidden places for cherished treasure, then you will discover the fear of The LORD and find the true knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:3-5 TPT.
I hear Him saying:
“Just give Me an opening and I will come rushing in to you to pour out My Secrets!
I have shown many of you in the seasons past bits and pieces in dreams and visions, but you did not seek Me beyond the encounter and I have so much more to show you about those encounters, hidden treasures and strategies for the days ahead!
I have remarkable things to show you that you know not of!
Come to Me and enter into this sweet communion in the days ahead and I will pour out My Heart and Wisdom for the future of your Nations and Communities, your Churches, and your households!
This is the generation that seeks me that will lift up their heads and let The King of Glory come in!”
