You can keep up with the latest interstellar news; remain in peace even when the stars fall around you; laugh in the face of all intimidators, with full knowledge, that no weapon on any planet that may be used against you will succeed in hurting you; Isaiah 54:15-17 all this is accomplished with the weapon of intimacy. Think of it My child, with this weapon no one can frighten you again. No one can tell you, you are out of My will, or practice religious witchcraft, by controlling our walk together.
When you learn to crawl up into the giant lap (Psalm 103:11-14) of the one who is the eternal source of all light and life, and He holds you close while He explains the end from the beginning, who can frighten you? Luke 8:10 Spending hours each day with the one who never sleeps or slumbers and is so in love with you that He keeps track of the number of hairs on your head, Luke 12:7 causing you to laugh when someone try’s to control you using religious intimidation. When someone says God is not pleased with you, and you just spent hours talking and laughing and sharing with Him, you simply smile and say, Father forgive them for they know not what they do!
There’s no fear of plane crashes, job loss, being homeless, being lied about, starving, being sick or dying, because your best friend is the one who holds the galaxies together with one hand. You walk around with a supernatural confidence because you know He lets nothing happen to you unless it’s for your good. This supernatural intimacy causes a loss of love for all earthly things and you find eternal Kingdom relationships far outweigh all natural relationships, Luke 14:26.
To have your heart bursting with love for the one who is love, laughing with tears of joy, 1 Peter 1:8 hour after hour, knowing you are surrounded with angels on special assignment Psalm 103:20 to watch over you, just because He is so crazy about you! 1 John 4:16-19.
That’s what seeking My kingdom first is all about.
