Voices of Approval

We must consider the weight and value we place on one another’s voices, is it higher than the ideas, truths, and Voice of the Lord? There is One Voice that ultimately marks us with approval.

“I have come in My Father’s name and with His power, and you do not receive Me [because your minds are closed]; but if another comes in his own name and with no authority or power except his own, you will receive him and give your approval to an imposter. How can you believe [in Me], when you [seek and] receive glory and approval from one another, and yet you do not seek the glory and approval which comes from the one and only God?” John‬ ‭5:43-44‬ ‭AMP‬‬

In all things we should imitate Christ, and most importantly where He received identity and where He did not. “I do not receive glory and approval from men” John 5:41.

These are perilous times and we are at a critical juncture in history when we can not afford to be led astray by even the slightest bit of human idea or opinion that would potentially deter us from the narrow path. We must eagerly await for the Bridegrooms Voice. “He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands by and listens to him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice.” John 3:29 Here in this friendship is your approval. May joy and peace be yours as you patiently stand by, and eagerly expect His Voice!

Let Me Burn

If I could explain the benefits of a “yes” to God, I’d die a hundred more times so you would know He is good. Somewhere in the flames of sacrifice you transition from yielding your flesh unto burning to beholding His glorious frame.

The heat of His presence tangible, now nearer still He speaks from the eternal flame. I’d die all over again and as many times required because it is here that life really begins. There is no other that can captivate my being, His longing for me draws me closer and in my longing for Him He returns.

My soul and my spirit pray, let me always stay here fastened to Your heart.

Do you know Him? Do you love Him?

Have you told Jesus you love Him today? The One whom the government rests on His shoulders, the eternal King of all kings who reigns forevermore; fullness of promise, the sacrificial Lamb slain and risen, beautiful Savior, Holy incarnate God who dwelt among us and befriender of sinners – Do you know Him? Do you love Him?

What about the Father, have you told Him you love Him today? Omniscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent; the Creator of mysteries low and expanses high – so terrifyingly wonderful yet He carries you in His womb and tattooed your name on His hand. He is more loving and welcoming than you can imagine. Do you know Him? Do you love Him?

And my precious friend Holy Spirit. Have you told Him you love Him today? Wrapped in light and glory; comfortor, counselor, teacher, joyful presence, connector, revealer and sealant … there are not enough adjectives to relay what a tremendous gift Jesus sent us. Do you know Him? Do you love Him?
